Crockpot Tuesday

So i needed something really simple today. i'm back to work and jeffrey is home this week using some vacay time and hanging out with connor before "summer school" starts. I usually start the crockpot in the morning and then it has to stay on warm for a long time before we eat, but today since jeffrey was home he could start it at 11 or even noon! amazing. anyway, i needed something easy since it was jeffrey :) i love you honey. not that he reads this - he totally does not.

Rice and Chicken Casserole

2 chicken breasts
1 can chicken broth or just water
1 tsp minced garlic
1 bag frozen broc and cheese-mosthly thawed
2 cups minute rice

Lightly season the chicken with whatever you feel like using. We did plain S & P. Put chicken, garlic and broth/water in crockpot and cook for 6 hours. About an hour before cooking is done, dump the veggies and rice in. I use Minute Rice mostly because it's sold at costco, but i've used the box of rice a roni too--it just takes more time to cook. much more time.

That's really it. This was so very yummy. The only thing I'd change is that next time i'd use more cheese. It was great the way it was, but we're a cheese-loving family and adding more cheese only makes it more delicious. You can really use any frozen veggies you want. This is a great basic recipe so you can add/omit anything really and it'll be easy peasy.
