Slow Cooked Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice is a dump-and-done dinner for your slow cooker.  Since everything goes in uncooked, there's hardly any prep time needed.  The trick with this recipe is that the seasoning from the rice packet blends perfectly with the condensed cream of chicken soup, making a savory gravy for simmering the chicken in the cooker.  Just 2 steps and you can walk away while the chicken and rice mixture cooks.  Slow Cooked Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice is a comforting dinner that's perfect for the multi-tasking home cook!

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken?Soup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 5 large carrot, peeled and cut in 1/4-inch thick slices (about 4 cups)

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts, they may require a little longer cooking time.
  • Step 1

    Stir the soup, water, carrots and rice with seasoning packet in a 5-to 6-quart slow cooker (make sure the carrots are submerged in the soup mixture).  Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Add the chicken and turn to coat.

  • Step 2

    Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours or until the chicken is done and the rice is tender.  Season to taste.  Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley just before serving, if desired.

  • EXCELLENT RECIPE WITH JUST A FEW CHANGES

    I USE CREAM OF CHICKEN WITH HERBS SOUP, ROTISSERIE CHICKEN (ALREADY COOKED) AND WHITE LONG GRAIN RICE. THIS RECIPE CAME OUT AMAZING, I DIDN'T HAVE TO ADD ANY SEASONING AT ALL BECAUSE OF THE HERB SOUP AND SEASONING ON THE CHICKEN. IT'S SUPER EASY AND CAME OUT THE PERFECT TEXTURE! IT'S A GREAT WAY TO USE UP LEFTOVER ROTISSERIE CHICKEN TOO FROM THE NIGHT BEFORE. MY DAUGHTER (WHO HAS SENSORY ISSUES, ADHD, AND EATING PROBLEMS) LOVES THIS (INCLUDING THE CARROTS)! I MADE THIS ABOUT A MONTH AGO THE FIRST TIME AND I'M MAKING IT AGAIN TONIGHT FOR MY FAMILY AND A DIFFERENT SET OF FRIENDS. THEY LOVED IT BEFORE TOO!

    I made this with 1 can of Cream of Celery and 1 can of water. 1 box chicken flavored Rice A Roni. Chopped 1/2 an onion and mixed it in rice mixture. I used 1/2 cup of whole milk too. I seasoned 6 chicken drumsticks with salt and pepper and garlic powder and browned them in a cast iron skillet 5 minutes each side then added chicken to crockpot and cooked 4 hours on low. Came out perfect! I also made this with Cream of Bacon soup too before.

    This recipe has no flavor. I also used chicken broth instead of water but still no taste.Ironically my 7 year old loves it b/c she doesn't like anything with actual flavor:(

    I love this recipe and its a dinner favorite at my house. Its super easy to make. The first time I made it the carrots didn't cook all the way through, so now I leave them out or use canned peas and carrots and it tastes just as good. You can also play around with different soups and rice mixes. I push the chicken breasts down so they are completely covered. The result is that the chicken gets really tender and shreds into the rice.
