Recipe: Cheddar Broccoli Corn Chicken Chowder

Cheddar Broccoli Corn Chicken Chowder

What you need:

Crock pot (I have a 6 qt)

1 bag Bear Creek Cheddar Broccoli Soup Mix (or any brand, if you can't find that one)
1 bag Uncle Bens Long Grain and Wild Ready Rice
1 bag Uncle Bens regular Ready Rice
1 can chicken (or fresh chicken, shredded)
1 smallish head of broccoli
1 can white and gold corn
onion powder
black pepper

What you do with it:

(IF you're using fresh chicken, cook and prepare that first)

1. In crock pot, prepare soup mix as directed on bag. (It works better if you use hot water because the soup tends not to mix up in cold).

2. Prepare rice per instructions on bags, and then add to crock pot.

3. Add corn.

4. Add chicken.

4. Cut heads off broccoli and either chop or tear them up into smaller pieces and add to crock pot.

5. Add onion powder and black pepper to taste.

6. Cook on high 4 hours.

It comes out a little on the unsalted side, so you'll need to add that to taste.
