Creamy Chicken and Rice Recipe Is a One-Pot Supper That’s Perfect for Cozy Weeknights

This stew is velvety, delicious and preps in less time thanks to rotisserie chicken and frozen veggies

Serve up a bowl of comfort by preparing this Creamy Chicken and Rice recipe. It uses rotisserie chicken so it’s ready to shred and warm up in the thick sauce base. Other ingredients like frozen peas, fresh carrots, canned corn and rice make this dish extra filling as well. This recipe calls for cooking the recipe separately so the grains are fluffy once added to the stew. The best part about this rich and savory dish is that it’s served out of one pot – making cleanup a whole lot easier!

You can personalize this dish by stirring in a combination of herbs or spices including rosemary and red pepper flakes. Alternatively, mix-and-matching the vegetables is another way to customize it to your liking. Stir in diced butternut squash for added heartiness or any variety of sliced mushrooms for an earthy flavor. Serve this soup with a slice of crusty bread, crackers or top it with a few croutons. Add your twist in the comments!
