    Could you substitute kale (I haven't looked at my superfood list) for the spinach?  I love the flavor it brings!

      Kale would work as a replacement for spinach.

    do you cook the rice in the crockpot as well- or separate?

      In the slow cooker with the other ingredients. Be sure rice is completely submerged in liquid…place on top of veggies, under chicken.

    Is it possible to substitute something else for the spinach? Spinach allergy in my family, so I can't use spinach.

    It doesn’t say what to do with the chicken. Do you put the chicken breast whole and shred it after it’s cooked or do you cut it into cubes to cook?

      Rochelle, Add cut up raw chicken to the recipe. I updated to make it more clear…thanks!

    Are the mushrooms sliced or whole? Are the beans drained and rinsed or dump in with liquid? As someone who is not a natural cook and has to follow a recipe, I wish you were more specific.

    Reply
    • Skinny Ms.  December 23, 2012

      Rachel, slice the mushrooms. Drain and rinse the beans in order to remove sodium but it’s not required. Enjoy!

    decent substitute for broccoli?

    Reply
    • SkinnyMs  September 4, 2014

      Kasey, Green Beans or add a leafy green such as spinach at the end.

    Just put it all in the crockpot. Do I stir it at anytime during the cooking?

    Reply
    • SkinnyMs  November 3, 2014

      Dolores, You can stir midway through but you don't have to.

    Do you dissolve the bouillon cubes in water before adding? Can you use a liquid vegetable broth such as Swanson's ?

    Reply
    • SkinnyMs  December 8, 2014

      Judi, The bouillon cubes will dissolve while cooking with everything else. Just remember to stir a few times if you do that. Otherwise, a liquid vegetable broth will work instead of the cubes and water.

        Thank you for your quick reply. How much of the liquid broth should I use?

        Reply
        • SkinnyMs  December 9, 2014

          Judi, You can add one additional cup of chicken broth and add 1 teaspoon or so each of spices- celery salt, oregano, thyme would all be good options. You should also add a bit of salt such as 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon.

    Are there onions in this recipe? It looks like there are onions on the top of the liquid

      DRHALL, You are right! Thanks for pointing that out. I have added them to the recipe.

    Would brown rice work instead of wild rice? I don’t have wild rice on hand. I’ve loved every recipe that I’ve tried on your site so far.

    Hi – can you substitute frozen broccoli florets for the fresh broccoli? If yes, would thawed be the best way to go? LOVE your site. Thank you. Will you be updating some of your recipes to SmartPoints?

    Reply
    • Melissa Florero  January 5, 2016

      Penny, You can put the florets in frozen. Yes, we have plans to update to SmartPoints but it will take some time.
