Slow Cooker Garlic and Parmesan Chicken

I am in love with my slow cooker, seriously, its love!!! On days where both my kids have school, and my youngest and I are on the run with errands, I am left with no time to even think about dinner. Before we leave for school, I love being able to throw a meal in the slow cooker and when I finally come home, its done! This dinner was quite yummy. My husband isn’t a huge fan of rice, so he didn’t like that part, but he enjoyed the chicken. If you aren’t into rice, you could use pasta instead : )


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp olive oil
4 tbsp white wine
1/4 tsp salt
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp parsley
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup brown rice, uncooked
1 1/4 cup chicken broth


Lightly spray the bottom of your slow cooker with cooking spray. Place rice on bottom. Pour the chicken broth on top of the rice, coating it completely. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, wine, salt, garlic, basil, and parsley. Pour mixture on top of chicken. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours. *I found that the rice was cooked in half that time, so I scooped it out earlier and put it in a Tupperware to save for dinner, you can leave it in there if you like rice a little mushier.
Once cooked, lightly shred chicken and place over rice. Sprinkle cheese on top and serve!!
