Chicken and rice are both cooked perfectly in this easy Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice Casserole, and this cooks on high so you don’t have to plan that far ahead!
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 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.
