Slow Cooker Red Pepper Brown Rice Risotto (no stirring!)

Risotto!  If you're not familiar with it you're not alone.  My husband was working from home while I was cooking this dish and he asked what I was making.  I told him risotto.  He asked what risotto was.  The best way that I found to explain it to him was by telling him it's an ultra creamy rice dish that seems sort of like comforting homemade mac n' cheese but doesn't have a lot of cheese or cream in it at all. I told him that usually it requires a LOT of babysitting and stirring but I was making it in the slow cooker so it was very hands off.  He nodded politely and kept on working...BUT when it was done he sure was the first one in the room to get himself a bite (check out the picture of him attacking my food on instagram).

One Skillet Dish: Chicken Cordon Bleu Stroganoff Recipe
Hi all!
Today I'm sharing a one pot meal that is a twist on a favorite meal of mine when I was growing up--beef stroganoff.  My mom would always make ground beef stroganoff on those nights when she needed something really easy and simple to throw together.  This recipe however is Chicken Cordon Bleu Stroganoff.  We swapped out the beef for chicken and added in ham and swiss cheese to give it that favorite flavor we all love.  BUT get this...it's just as easy to make (less than 30 minutes) as the original beef stroganoff only it has a fresh new flavor.  Greg and I kept sneaking bites of this and I could barely take pictures of it before it was gone!
