He Actually Ate Broccoli... for Breakfast!

It's a hard thing to get Adam to eat vegetables. Or fruit. Or really anything other than peanut butter and honey sandwiches with apples. So, that's why I almost fainted this morning when I was in the process of making him his usual PB&H, and he begged to instead have leftovers from last night's dinner.

I had tried a new recipe (below), and we all thought it was pretty good, but I had no idea I'd get this kind of reaction from Adam. I'm stunned.

I mean he willingly ate broccoli for breakfast. Wow! That. Has. Never. Happened.

Creamy Crockpot Chicken & Broccoli over Rice

3-4 boneless chicken breasts
1 14oz can cream of chicken soup (I used low-fat)
1 14 oz can cheddar soup
1 14 oz can chicken broth
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon Cajun seasoning
¼ teaspoon garlic salt seasoning
1 Cup sour cream
6 Cups broccoli florets, lightly steamed, just fork tender ( I cook it in boiling water for 3-4 minutes)
1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
Rice, cooked (we prefer short grain brown rice)

1. Place soups, chicken broth, salt, Cajun and garlic seasoning into a crockpot over low heat. Whisk until smooth. Place chicken in, pressing to the bottom. Cover lid and cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours.

2. When chicken is cooked, use 2 forks to shred into bite size pieces. Stir in sour cream and broccoli.

3. Serve over steamed rice and sprinkle with cheese.
