How to make chicken and rice in a slow cooker

Print this recipe
I grew up with one of my mom's sisters watching my brothers and I after school. She would always make a chicken and mushrooms dish that was favorite. It was creamy, the chicken was nice and moist and the rice was always cooked perfectly. In the recipe below that's exactly what you'll get.
In her recipe she never measured anything but it always came out the same, delicious. I had to face the truth that it just isn't quite the same if it's not made by her but this recipe comes really close. I use cream of mushroom soup with chicken and fresh sliced mushrooms and baby spinach. Adding minute rice at the last 30 minutes of cooking to ensure it keeps the perfect texture.
