Crockpot Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole
This classic comfort food casserole is prepared in the slow cooker! Chicken, wild rice, mushrooms, and seasonings – the perfect Crockpot recipe for a busy weeknight!
Moms and Dads, we’re almost there. We’re in the home stretch. It’s towards the end of May now and school will be out in a few short weeks. Wesley will be done preschool the Friday before Memorial Day and Silas will be done first grade the first full week in June.
I’m delusional, though, if I think I’ll be getting a break anytime soon. That’s because we’re moving!
I believe at this point I have a grand total of 2 boxes pack. Yes, literally, two. In my defense, I have cleared out the entire basement storage of things I wanted to donate or trash. I’ve pared it down as much as I can. I’m proud of myself that I saved all of our moving boxes from our previous move. So between those, and our joint addiction to Amazon Prime, we should be good to go!

But I still LOATHE packing.
This Crockpot Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole is the perfect dinner to just set in your slow cooker and have dinner ready when your family is ready. Needless to say, my slow cooker will be getting a huge workout between now and moving time!
