Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Over Rice


Another family favorite meal made in a crockpot.  Lately, I have been finding myself pressed for time.  Some nights, I have just taken salad and sandwich fixings out of the fridge and told my family to go for it.

Last night's dinner was a tasty surprise for everyone.  I cooked some chicken breasts in a sauce consisting of soups and chicken broth seasoned with garlic salt, salt, and Cajun seasoning.  After about 5 hours on the low setting, I shredded the chicken, adding some steamed fresh broccoli, sour cream and cheddar cheese to the sauce.   I cooked the chicken for about another 30 minutes while I made some rice to ladle the chicken and broccoli over.


The result was a comforting meal that was both satisfying and delicious.
