If you don't have left-over rice (and white or brown would work fine) go ahead and get your wild rice cooking, following the package directions. Mine said to cook for 45 minutes.

Chicken – Wild Rice – Broccoli One-Dish Meal

1 1/2 pounds chicken pieces (boneless and skinless)

2 cups cooked rice

2 cups broccoli

1 can chicken broth

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1/2 cup shredded cheese (optional)

If you don’t have leftover rice, cook it according to package directions. While it is cooking, cut chicken into bite-sized pieces, trimming off any fat.

Heat about a tablespoon of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until it is no longer pink. Pour in 1 cup of chicken broth, cover and let simmer for about 12 minutes.

By now, your rice should be done. Drain and add to the chicken, along with the broccoli. Mix with the chicken, cover and let simmer about five minutes.

Turn off heat then spoon in cream of mushroom soup, blending well. Cover and let sit just a minute to make sure soup is heated throughout then serve. We like to sprinkle a little cheese (cheddar or colby-jack) on top of ours.

The best part about this is that clean-up is a snap.

Serves 6-8 (depending how starving they are!)

Growing up, I think I was the only one in our home who loved pasta – especially Mom’s chicken and noodles. She made the noodles from scratch and cooked the chicken for hours until it literally fell apart. It was probably my favorite meal that she made (which she never made often enough!).

Since I still love chicken and noodles but don’t have the time to invest in preparing it the way she did, I was thrilled when I found this easy crock pot recipe. It takes just minutes to put together and is so good. It is the perfect comfort food for a cold wintery day. Enjoy!

Chicken & Noodles

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

salt and pepper to taste

2 10-3/4 oz. cans cream of chicken soup

1 14-1/2 oz. can chicken broth

16-oz. package of wide egg noodles, cooked

Place chicken in a slow cooker and sprinkled the salt and pepper. Top with both cans of cream of chicken soup, cover and cook on low setting for six hours. Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and add broth along with the cooked noodles. Mix well, cover and cook on low setting for an additional 30 minutes or until heated through. Serves 6.

Happy Entertaining!
