Carol’s Crockpot Chicken Gravy and Rice

Lately, I’ve been missing this dish that was a favorite when I was a little girl! Late nights at the office for my momma would mean we’d head around the corner and grab a cup of chicken and rice at a little fried chicken place called Bonnie Lees in St. Cloud, Florida! That was well before the days of Uber Eats and DoorDash, so we had to go ourselves. 🙂 Bonnie Lees is still there by the way if you ever find yourself in the area. 

The other day I remembered it for some reason and wanted a bow but it’s at least a 90 minute drive for me now, so I figured I’d use it as a challenge for this week’s Quick Family Recipe. Let me just tell you, WOW, it turned out amazing! 

My husband said this is in his Top 3 favorites! I make a lot of dishes…so there are a lot in the Top 3 category lol, but to earn a spot in Top 3, it has to be so good, he’d want me to make it again for another meal!

This one is so easy, it’s all made in the crockpot. And for the rice, if you’re like me and don’t have a rice cooker, just throw it in the microwave… it turns out perfect every time! 

Let’s get cooking together…

  • 2 Large Jars of Chicken Gravy (or 3-4 smaller jars)
  • 1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 Tsp Salt | 1 Tsp Pepper

  • Dump both jars of gravy into crockpot along with can of cream of mushroom soup.

  • Shred chicken using two forks and stir back into gravy.

  • Place on warm until ready to serve!
  • For Rice: Add two cups of water for every one cup of rice to a glass, microwave safe dish. So for this batch, I added two cups of rice and 4 cups water.
  • Add one tsp salt and one tsp of pepper to the water along with a Tbsp of butter. Stir together.

  • Place in microwave and cook 18-20 minutes.
  • Comes out perfectly every time, just use a spatula or fork to fluff!

  • Serve chicken gravy over your rice and you have the perfect dinner ready pretty quickly when you get home!
  • Enjoy! 🙂
