Mom's Chicken & Broccoli over Rice

My Mom is the queen of home cooked comfort foods, and as a busy mom raising ten kids she knew a thing or two about easy crock pot meals. Some of the best things to come out of my crock pot have been recipes from her, like this dish right here. This is an all time favorite that my kids now love as much as I do. Thanks mom!

2 chicken breasts
2 Tbs butter
2 Tbs flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp chicken bouillon
1 cup sour cream
1 ½ c chopped broccoli
1 cup shredded cheese
1 ½- 2 c uncooked rice

Melt butter in a saucepan, whisk in flour and cook for a few minutes. Whisk in milk and bouillon and continue cooking until it is thickened (or you can use a can of cream of chicken soup, but I prefer this version instead). Place chicken in crockpot then pour milk mixture on top, then add chopped broccoli and cook on low 5-6 hours. About half way through, shred the chicken. About 30 min before serving, add sour cream and cheese. Cook rice according to package directions and serve over cooked rice with a sprinkle of shredded cheese on top.
