Cozy french-style Bistro Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice loaded with herbs and lemon essence! A must-make this season.
The time has come to start dinner earlier in the day, in order to come come to a house filled with welcoming aromas at family mealtime.
I never think to pull out my slow cooker in the summer or early fall… I’m too busy grilling. However, this week I moved my tropical potted plants into the house and pulled out the slow cooker. Fall has officially arrived.
Today I want to share a mild comforting slow cooker dish that your whole family will love. This twist on the classic slow cooker chicken and rice is simple and easy to make, with light flavors of butter, garden herbs, and lemon.
To make Bistro Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice, I simply sautéed garlic and onions in butter to soften them, prior to adding to the slow cooker. (A must when slow cooking less than 10-12 hours.)
Then I added the buttery onions and garlic to the crock and topped them with a fresh bouquet of rosemary and thyme, chicken breasts, fragrant jasmine rice, and lemon slices.
Cover and let the slow cooker work its magic!
When the rice is firm but fluffy, and not a moment longer, remove the herb bouquet and the chicken. Chop the chicken, then toss it back into the rice.
See how easy it is?
Bistro Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice tastes (and smells) of a classic french bistro, yet with a lot less effort than classic french dishes.
The mild, yet alluring, flavors will satisfy even the pickiest eaters. You’re kids will love it!
