This healthy slow cooker creamy chicken casserole could not be easier to make! Simply add everything except the flour, cheese, and 1 cup of water into the slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 7.
When there’s 30 minutes of cooking time left, make your slurry.
To do this, you’ll whisk together the flour and 1 cup of very warm water in a small mixing bowl. Once the mixture is lump-free, add the slurry into the slow cooker.
Cook for the remaining 30 minutes. Stir in the cheese just before serving.
Nope! Simply add the raw chicken to the bottom of the slow cooker and add the remaining ingredients on top.
To keep broccoli from getting soggy in the slow cooker, wait to add it until there’s just 30 minutes of cooking time left.
You can use brown rice.
However, it will get mushier than quinoa will. To give your rice more texture, cook it on the stove rather than the slow cooker, and then stir it into the crockpot when there’s only 30 minutes left of cooking time.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. I don’t recommend freezing it as it gets too mushy when thawed and reheated.
