Slow-Cooker Chicken and Rice

Slow-Cooker Chicken and Rice

I know there are people out there who have something against recipes made with canned soup. But I am not one of them. In fact, I have several recipes on this website that call for canned soup, and I’m not the least bit embarrassed about it because I think every one of them is fantastic. This recipe for Slow-Cooker Chicken and Rice actually uses THREE cans of soup PLUS an envelope of dried onion soup mix! Heavens to Betsy! I suppose that would give some people reason to laugh. But I’m going to hold my head high because this recipe is delicious.

Even though it’s very good, I’ve been putting off photographing this dish for almost a year because I knew it would be hard to make it look as good as it tastes. And I’ll admit that I styled it and re-styled it several times before I was happy with the presentation. I started off with the rice behind the chicken and one tomato to the side. Then I added a second piece of chicken to the same plate. Then I decided to try a bowl instead of a plate. I placed the rice in the bottom of the bowl with one chicken breast on top and no tomato at all. Still not right. I just wasn’t getting the look I wanted, and I even considered giving up on the recipe, but I kept thinking about how delicious it is and how I want to share the recipe with all of my readers. In frustration, I transferred everything back to the original plate, placing the chicken on top of the rice and two tomatoes in the back. Finally, I was happy with the presentation, and I carried the plate into my dining room to photograph it. I hope you enjoy this one, and if you’re one of those people who has no problem with recipes that call for canned soup, all three of the dishes pictured at the bottom of this post under “You Might Also Like” use canned soup. You can make them and be proud!
