Slow Cooker Chicken Rice Casserole from Simply Recipes

Chicken and rice both cooked perfectly in the slow cooker!

My friend Elise says she designed this recipe especially for the slow cooker, and I think everything about this Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice Casserole from Simply Recipes sounds just perfect.  I love the idea of using some Middle Eastern seasonings and a generous amount of onion in a chicken and rice dish, and Elise browns the chicken thighs first, then sits them on top of the rice to keep the skin out of the liquid.  And another plus, this easy and family-friendly dinner cooks quickly on high, and using the slow cooker won't heat up the house.

Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:
  • Skin-on chicken thighs with or without bones
  • olive oil
  • yellow onion
  • cumin
  • cinnamon
  • finely chopped garlic
  • long grain Basmati rice
  • canned or fresh tomatoes
  • frozen peas (optional)
  • chicken stock
  • black pepper
  • bay leaves.
