Crockpot Cheesy Chicken and Rice

Crockpot Cheesy Chicken and Rice

  I use my slow cooker all year long but even more so during the summer! Days during the summer with all my kids home are long and hot!

We are more of a pasta family. So I rarely venture out and try new rice recipes. I made this and served it up the cuban …
