Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice is pure comfort food made in your crock pot. It’s a dinner that’s easy to make, hearty, and delicious.
This meal requires very little prep and while your crock pot is doing all of the work you can attend to other tasks. For me, this meal meant I could continue working on writing a grant for a class I was taking. Knowing dinner was already in the works, kept me on task with my studies.
That’s my life right now – studying, writing papers, and more studying. The journey to get this degree finished has begun and I can’t tell you how thrilling it is for me. Hard work, yes, but I’m in it for the long haul.
Now, this cream chicken and wild rice casserole is a meal oozes comfort food. Add a vegetable side and dinner is done. I realize the recipe uses a prepackaged rice and condensed cream of chicken soup – but trust me – it’s good food.
You can make your own Cream of Chicken Soup, or any creamed soup by using this recipe. I often will make it to use in this recipe and many other ones that call for creamed soups. Making your own means you control the salt and other seasonings.

Can you use drumsticks instead of boneless chicken breasts?
Jancee, you sure can! The time would be the same, just check to make sure the chicken is done to a temp of 165 degrees!
Thank you so much for this recipe. My family loved it!
Hi Jancee, oh that’s so great! Glad you enjoyed it. I just made it again last week and it was perfect comfort food!
Just bought the ingredients for this! I’ve been looking for a good chicken and rice crockpot recipe and this looks scrumptious! I’ll let you know how it turns out. 🙂
Taylor, thanks for trying the recipe, can’t wait to hear how it turns out!
I would like a crockpot chicken with rice receipt.
Do you need to cook rice separately ahead of time or do you put in crockpot uncooked?
Hello, nope, the rice will cook in the crockpot with the chicken.
What kind of seasoning packet? You said in the instructions to add it with the rice onion and pepper but t doesn’t say what kind in the ingredients, and also can I use long grain white rice?
It is in the box with the wild rice

Can i use white Basmati Rice for for the above recipe please ?

I have a PhD in microbiology so I know how it feels. And then to add onto it, in thelast 6 months I got married, changed jobs, bought a house, and moved into said house. To say my eating habits has suffered is an understatement. I keep trying to get back on track but something gets in the way every week. I really need to at least get back into using my slow cooker more often for things like this!
That dish is pure throw back comfort food. I remember getting my master’s in my 50’s. Lots and lots of hard work while babysitting grandkids! You go!
I don’t think I’ve ever made rice in my slow cooker…I’m going to have to add that to my list of things to do this year because this looks totally yummy!
Chicken and rice is a favorite and this Slow Cooker creamy version sounds perfect.
I love creamy chicken and rice recipes, but have never tried making it in a slow cooker. I can’t wait to give this a go!

I’m excited to try this. I’m super picky with my slow cooker recipes, but this sounds great – mostly hands off, can cook away while I’m at work with minimal prep… perfect!
Anne Lawton says
This looks so good and just perfect that it’s made in a slow cooker!
I love putting my slow cooker to work. This dish looks fantastic.
Can you use cream of mushroom instead?
Yes! It works perfectly as well.
