If you are looking for an EASY recipe that is hearty, comforting and delicious look no further. This creamy chicken dish is just for you! Made in the crock pot, the prep time for this beauty is very minimal. Your looking at a breezy 10 minutes to put it all together. :) That’s something to smile about, right! You can even use frozen chicken breasts. Easy, baby. Easy as can be.

The chicken simmers in a flavorful, creamy sauce. When it is cooked through you shred it with a fork and add sour cream, cheddar cheese and broccoli to the sauce. Then just pour it over some white rice, top with additional cheddar cheese and dinner is served man. My family gave it many thumbs up. It’s creamy, comforting goodness at it’s best.

Now, let me show you how to make it happen.

4. Place 4 chicken breasts into the crock pot. You can use fresh or frozen. Stir the sauce a bit and pour it over the chicken. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 7.

5. When the chicken has cooked through and is no longer pink in the center, chop up 4 cups of broccoli.

Place it in a microwave safe bowl, add a splash of water, cover and steam it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes or until crisp tender.

6. To the crock pot add 1 cup sour cream,

and 1 heaping cup of cheddar cheese (more if you like). Add the broccoli as well and give it all a nice stir.
7. Shred the chicken up a bit with two forks.

8. If the sauce is thinner than you would like, mix 2 tablespoons of cold water with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Pour it into the crock pot, stir well and cook on high for 20 minutes. If the sauce is thick enough for your liking, don’t add the cornstarch/water mixture  and just cook  until the sour cream is heated through and the cheese has melted. Give it a taste and add a bit of salt and pepper to your liking.

Serve over white rice and sprinkle with more cheddar cheese. Enjoy!

      Pam,
      Yes, chicken broth would work out great. You may need to adjust the salt when it’s done. Just give it a taste and add a little more if it needs it. Good luck!

      Karen,
      The cajun seasoning isn’t spicy if you only add the 1/4 teaspoon called for. This is a pretty mild tasting recipe. Best of luck!

    I’m having five adults for dinner and one child! Was wondering if you’ve ever doubled the recipe or added an extra Chicken Breast! I have a large Crock Pot and I want to try this. I think it would be a big hit. I’m hungry just looking at it. Yum!
