Ok, for those that know me, I am a coke (cola) junkie. There is nothing better to me than the refreshing taste of the soda bubbles pouring down my throat. But alas, I have been trying to be healthier and I knew the daily (sometimes multiple) cokes needed to go. Now limiting myself to just 1-2 a week, it is no surprise that any recipe that calls for some type of soda just jumps off the page and screams at me to make it. This chicken dish was absolutely AWESOME, not to mention healthy and super easy to make. I found this recipe at one of my favorite food blogs, Six Sisters Stuff. I definitely recommend this!
Slow Cooker 7-Up Chicken & Rice
Serves: 4 pieces of chicken
Cook time according to Six Sisters: 4-6 hours
Cook time according to Rachel: 6 hours
How hard was this for Rachel to make? SO easy!
4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 10z can cream of chicken soup (I used 98% fat free and it tasted great)
1 12oz can 7-Up or Sprite
1 cup rice (Minute is recommended)
1/4 cup chicken broth
Note: I used white rice because that is what I had available, but next time I would use brown rice.
Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add in the 7-Up/Sprite and can of chicken soup. Cook on low for 3 hours.
I recommend stirring once an hour even though it is not recommended just to make sure the soup and soda mix thoroughly.
After 3 hours add in rice & chicken broth. Make sure rice is completely submerged in order to fully cook. Cook for an additional 2.5-3 hours.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
