Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken Bacon and Rice




It's cold. Not chilly but downright cold. AND...it's snowing! What?! Not a little but a lot. I do like snow but not in November! Weather like this calls for a hearty comforting dinner. This is one of my family's favorites. There is not much not to love about slow cooked chicken mixed with cheese, bacon, and rice. I serve mine alongside a tossed salad and dinner is served!

Ingredients
1 lb boneless skinless chicken or chicken tenders
1/2 yellow onion, sliced
2 carrots, chopped
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. onion powder
1 can cream of chicken soup (or if you are like me and hate the stuff you can use a cream of chicken substitute)
1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon or bacon bits
1 cup shredded cheese
4 cups cooked brown rice

Arrange chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Top with onions, carrots, and soup. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours. Add in the cheese, bacon, and rice. Stir and continue cooking for another 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
