Does this slow cooker recipe taste exactly the same as if it were prepared in a traditional casserole?

Of course not ! As with all slow cooker recipes, the slow cooking process gives this chicken casserole a creamier, smoother texture .

Plus, this recipe is full of healthy ingredients. It is prepared with brown rice, lots of broccoli and a little cheese.

I use low-fat Greek yogurt to add a creamy touch rather than bechamel sauce, crème fraiche or mayo.

So no need to feel guilty when you eat this delicious recipe, because it is very low in calories!

There you go, your slow cooker Creamy Broccoli Chicken is ready :-)

Easy, quick and convenient to do, right?

I can tell you that the whole family will love this recipe!

And you too, because you will save a lot of time in the kitchen.

And to wash your slow cooker, nothing could be easier! She cleans herself. Just follow this trick.

Know that with a slow cooker, you can also make bread or a delicious chicken stroganoff.

And if you like chicken and broccoli, I also recommend my chicken and broccoli cheese gratin recipe.

Other types of broccoli cooking

Be aware that if you cook broccoli in a slow cooker, it will lose some of its bright green color.

Personally, I steam it, as I find it tastes better but it takes a little longer and requires more washing up.

To steam broccoli, pour 200ml of water into a medium-sized saucepan.

Add the broccoli cut into pieces and cover the pan.

Bring the water to a boil and cook, 2 to 5 minutes, until the broccoli is crisp and tender.

Be careful not to overcook it. It should be crunchy and not soft.

You can also steam it in the microwave or roast it.

Additional advice

- Do not use white rice for this recipe. Preferably use long grain brown rice.

- Cook this dish at high intensity, not at low intensity. Why ? Because preparing your rice over low heat will make it even softer. In any case, be aware that slow-cooked rice will always be less firm than rice cooked on the stove or in a rice cooker. For the firmest possible rice, set your slow cooker to a high temperature.

- Cooking chicken and rice takes between 2.5 and 3.5 hours on the maximum cooking position. The cooking time varies according to the brands of slow cookers. I therefore advise you to start cooking your dish early enough so that it can possibly last 3h30.

- If it takes less time, you can simply set your slow cooker to the keep warm position.

- When there is only a small amount of liquid left, you can turn off your slow cooker. The rest of the liquid will be absorbed when you mix everything.

- I do not advise you to double the quantities of the recipe.

- Some slow cooker recipes can easily be adapted, but not this one. I recommend that you make the recipe exactly as I have described it, except for the cooking time which may vary depending on the slow cooker models.

- Your slow cooker may take more or less time to cook the rice. You'll know it's ready when it's absorbed most of the liquid.
