CROCKPOT NO PEEK CHICKEN IS THE EASIEST DINNER EVER
When you have a new baby in the house, the days and nights are all busy. But it’s important to keep everyone fed, including baby AND mom. While the baby often becomes the priority, it’s important that parents take care of themselves during this busy time of life.
That means easy meal ideas are a must. For our family that meant our slow cooker got quite the workout because slow cooker recipes are usually easy to dump and go. Hours later, dinner is ready!
No peek chicken is one of the easiest recipes to make and should be a staple for any family with a new baby. It’s a one pot chicken and rice meal that is sometimes called forgotten chicken because you can put everything in the pot and forget about it!
When you’re in the middle of changing diapers and making bottles, this is huge!
FEEDING BABY AND MOM
One of the challenges of having a newborn is figuring out the best way to feed your baby. Every family has a different routine that works well for them. For our family, it was a combination of breastfeeding and formula feeding. That means I was always on the hunt for the best infant formula for my children.
Whether you’re a breastfeeding mom or a formula feeding mom, you need to make sure you’re eating enough to have the energy to be the best mom you can be. So put this no peek chicken recipe in the Crockpot and then feed your baby.
If you’re using infant formula, new Comforts™ Infant Formula at Kroger is a great option. The formulas are nutritionally comparable to leading brands and you can save up to $400 with the Comforts™ formulas!

NO PEEK CHICKEN FAQ
WHAT CAN YOU MAKE WITH CHICKEN AND ONION SOUP MIX?
Chicken and onion soup mix are the two basic ingredients in this slow cooker chicken breast and rice recipe!
If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can also make a no peek chicken casserole. It’s also easy to make as a one pan meal.
All you have to do is heat your oven to 350 degrees then combine all of the ingredients EXCEPT the chicken and onion soup mix. Put the rice mixture into a 9×13 dish and then place the chicken on top. Sprinkle the onion soup mix over the top and cover with foil.
Bake the chicken for 1 hour and 45 minutes to 2 hours.
Remember that there is no peeking! Even if you bake it in the oven, there is no peeking by opening the oven or lifting the foil!
WHAT KINDS OF RICE CAN I USE TO MAKE NO PEEK CHICKEN?
I usually use Minute Rice. But you can use a variety of rice including Uncle Ben’s, Rice a Roni, and even a Zatarain’s mix! I haven’t had great success with regular rice that needs to be cooked longer so I always stick with Minute Rice.
There’s just something about white rice that I love when I make no peek chicken in the Crockpot. I think it’s a comfort food thing!
MY CHICKEN AND RICE TASTES TOO MUSHROOMY!
If you’re not a huge fan of cream of mushroom soup (I know not everyone is) then you can just use a second can of cream of chicken soup! Or if you want more of the mushroom taste, you can also swap the cream of chicken for more cream of mushroom!
The great thing about this chicken recipe is that you can play around with the recipe and make it perfect for your family! And it will still be super simple to make!
