Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice

The wild rice, which technically is a grass, but who would want to tell the kids that, provides not only a chewy texture but a very specific flavor.

Many packages of the wild rice and regular rice blends come with a seasoning package – you can add it or not, depending on how much your family likes the flavor of dried herbs.

You can always save it for a last minute addition to other rice recipes.

Ingredients
  • 8 chicken breasts legs or thighs
  • 1 package (6 ounces) wild rice and long grain rice mix
  • 2 cans 10.75 ounces condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 4 large carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Peel the carrots and cut them in thick slices.
  2. Whisk together the condensed cream of chicken soup and chicken broth. Stir in the wild and regular rice blend, with the seasoning packet if you wish.
  3. Season the chicken with the kosher salt and black pepper, then lay them in the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour the soup and rice mixture over the chicken and top with the sliced carrots.
  4. Cover the slow cooker and turn the heat to low. Cook for 7 to 8 hours.

Food For Thought – Use another of your favorite fresh vegetables in place of or in addition to the carrots. Try using half celery and half carrots, then enhance those flavors with one can of the cream of chicken soup and one can of cream of celery soup.

Good To Know – You can always spice up the finished product before you serve it – put a bottle of Tabasco on the table for your hot and spicy addicts.
