Gluten Free Crock Pot Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Over Rice

I found this DELICIOUS recipe on pinterest here.  It was not gluten free and I wasn't sure how I was going to substitute the cheddar soup so I did a little research online and set about making dinner.  I must say not all recipes I try from pinterest are as good as I have hoped for but this one is SOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!  I will definitely be making this one again and again.

It was so good that I forgot to take a picture.  Here is  a picture taken from here.  
 I always like to see a picture.

Here is my Gluten Free Version:

2-4              boneless chicken breasts (I used 2 frozen from Costco)
2 recipes    gluten free cream of chicken soup (recipe here - I just doubled it)
1 cup          grated cheddar cheese + extra for topping 
14 oz          chicken broth (I made it with water and bouillon.  Using this much made it  a little 
                        runny, but it soaked into the rice and worked just fine.  If you don't want it as  
                        runny add less broth.)
1/4 tsp        garlic salt
1 cup           sour cream
6 cups         broccoli florets, just fork tender ( I steamed on stove for 4 minutes before adding)

Follow recipe to make cream of chicken soup, when thickened add 1 cup shredded cheese and stir until melted.  Add the chicken broth & garlic salt to cream soup and whisk until blended.  

*          Place chicken in bottom of crock pot.
*          Pour cream soup mixture over the top of chicken.
*          Cover & cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours.
*          When chicken is cooked, shred (thanks to pinterest I know the best to to shred it.  Put it
            in your kitchen aid mixer with the regular paddle and turn on until shredded.  LOVE 
            how easy it is.  If you don't have a stand mixer - use to forks to shred.
*          Stir in sour cream to cream soup mixture, then add broccoli and shredded chicken.
*          Stir over steamed rice & sprinkle with cheese.  

It is one of my new favorite recipes!!!!  ENJOY!!!



I'm so glad I found this recipe! It was so easy. And the best part: you gave me a recipe for cream soups! I can now remake my favorite childhood comfort food gluten free. I added more pepper and sprinkled in a few red pepper flakes. This is great over a baked potato too. Thanks!
