Perfect for a simple but tasty twist on a classic, this Crockpot Chicken and Rice Dinner, created by Christine McMichael at Jar of Lemons, is made using herbs and a premium blend of Jasmine Rice with Red & Wild Rice from Mahatma® Rice.
Place the chicken breasts in the crockpot and season with garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper.
Set the crockpot on high for 1 hour.
Add in the rice and broth.
Cook on high for another 30 minutes.
Remove the chicken and cut into small cubes.
Place the chicken back into the slow cooker and add in the broccoli, yogurt, and 1/2 of the cheese.
Mix everything together and cook on high for another 45 minutes.
Add in the remaining cheese, stir, and cook on high for another 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
For best results, make sure you get the correct water rice ratio.
The wonder of Crockpot meals is that they are essentially one-pot meals, which makes cleaning up a breeze and lunch or dinner made easy! Add this dish to your list of easy recipes to make with pantry staples that you most likely already have on hand. Or, you can plan ahead and stock up on frozen chicken breast and broccoli to take out and make for a simple no fuss dinner with spice rack herbs, broth, shredded cheese and yogurt.

This is no ordinary chicken and rice dinner. Although most recipes would use traditional white rice or whole grain brown rice, this tasty dish uses a premium blend of three different kinds of rice: aromatic jasmine rice, red rice and wild rice so you can enjoy a variety of textures and colors with added fiber and aromatic flavor.
For a simpler version, simply cook Jasmine Rice on its own in place of the blend.
This meal is also made using Greek yogurt for a lighter alternative to cream and feel free to swap in fresh herbs and vegetables for the dried variety.
