“A easy to throw together in the morning, ready when you get home meal. I use chicken thighs instead of breasts because they tend to stay moist and do not get overcooked & dry if you come home later than planned. I call for brown rice, but am planning to try wild rice. I would not use white rice, as it may get too mushy.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients except chicken and peas in the crock of your slow cooker.
  2. Add the chicken thighs and submerse in liquid.
  3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. My cooker takes closer to 6, so just check the chicken to ensure it is done.
  4. 30 minutes prior to serving, stir in the frozen peas. Sometimes 1/2 cup of water is also needed at this point, sometimes it is not.
