Soda Pop Chicken and Rice

Lemon-lime soda is the surprise ingredient in this chicken and rice dish. The soda adds flavor and moisture to an otherwise simple amount of ingredients for a fresh spring recipe.




  1. Coat a 6-quart slow cooker insert with cooking spray.
  2. Place the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  3. Sprinkle the rosemary, thyme, and pepper over the chicken.
  4. Pour the cream of mushroom soup and lemon-lime soda over the top.
  5. Cover and cook for 1–1 1/2 hours on High.
  6.  Add the rice and broth and cook for another 1–1 1/2 hours on High, until the chicken is cooked.
  7. In the last 30 minutes of cooking, add the white cheddar cheese and mix. Garnish with rosemary and serve.
