Slow Cooker Chicken w/Rice

With summer in full heat mode, I am looking to my slow cooker for easy recipes that don’t heat up the kitchen.  I have started with a simple Chicken w/Rice.  Just going from memory of a dish I liked; this is what I came up with.

Pour approximately 1 cup of brown rice in the bottom of slow cooker.  Sprinkle with onion powder, garlic powder and paprika.  Place chicken breast (or the pieces you prefer) on top of rice then add some sliced mushrooms on top.  Pour 2 cups of chicken broth & about 1/2 cup of heavy cream over mixture and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.10E86244-8A25-4ABD-B9D6-83C7A1E66A15

This is a basic recipe, add any spices or flavorings according to your taste or the time of the year.  A little sage in November, some cumin &/or chili powder in the fall, etc.
