Cheesy Chicken and Rice

Cheesy Chicken and Rice

I love a good slow-cooker meal this time of year, and this recipe for Cheesy Chicken and Rice is one of my favorites.  It’s incredibly simple, cooks while you’re at work and is a real crowd pleaser. It’s so nice to come home to a warm meal at the end of a long day. Next time you’re running out of things to make, give this one a try. Serve it with some mixed vegetables for a well-rounded meal.

Did you know that Arkansas farmers primarily grow long grain rice?
