What size crock pot did you use? I wish that information was always included with the recipe. Thanks!
Thanks for the question T.L. I don’t always include as some of the readers may think they can’t make something if they don’t have that size crock pot. When looking at the ingredients in the recipe, and how it’s made that is how you can judge what size crock pot to use. Rule of thumb is to make sure the crock pot is 1/2 to 2/3 full for your meal to crock properly. Now with that said I would probably use my 4 quart crock pot for this recipe. Hope this helps… 🙂
Can this recipe be cooked on high for half the time if someone doesn’t have all day to cook it?
Yes Erica it can, crocking slow will blend the flavors more, but High will still work fine. Happy Crocking!
Could you better clarify how much soup that is? I’m cooking challenged!
Ashley in the upper right hand corner of each of the recipes you will find the serving sizes, and this one serves 4-6.. Thank you for your question! Happy Crocking!
I see broccoli in your picture, but notice there isn’t any requested in your ingredient list or named in the steps…I would like to add some in mine. Would you recommend adding in broccoli in the beginning or do you think it’d get too mushy?
Hi Melissa, I have it listed under optional, as that is the way I make it. I would add the broccoli in the last hour if you like it a little crisp… Happy Crocking!
Does the chicken breast need to be thawed or frozen when you put it in? Thank you!
Bree you chicken can be frozen, but you would want to add an hour to an hour and a half to make sure chicken gets done. This may affect the rice to get too mushy, so you may want to adjust when you add the rice as well. Hope this helps! Happy Crocking!
If cooking on high, how long do you think it will take? 3 or 4 hours.
I love it! So yummy!
Can you use frozen chicken in crockpot
You can Allison, but you will need to add extra time to the crocking. I prefer my chicken thawed unless the recipe specifically calls for frozen. 🙂
One time I used frozen chicken and got some blue gray residue
would it be possible to substitute quinoa for the rice? if so, how would this change preparations?
Hi Alyssa, make this recipe your own. I’ve not made it with quinoa but it sounds delicious. I would think if you add it like it says to add rice, it would not change the recipe at all. Enjoy and Happy Crocking! 🙂
Would substituting brown rice work? Or regular long grain rice?
Yes Michele make this recipe and any recipe your own. I love to hear when you make changes and also how the change turned out! 🙂
