crock pot chicken/rice/peas
What can I say--we love chicken and rice and especially love it cooked with seasonings in the crock pot.
One good sized package of boneless, skinless chicken thighs (I think there are about 8 thighs) You can also double this amount and use two of these packages--about 16 thighs--using a large crockpot.
1 quart gluten free Chicken broth (prefer unsalted--and add own salt)
1 cup of baby garden peas (or however much you desire)
1 & 1/2 to 2 cups basmati rice
sage, thyme, rosemary, garlic (I eyeball it--about 1/4 -1/2 tsp of the sage , thyme , rosemary--or just sprinkle in until it smells nice.
salt and pepper
Place chicken and broth in a medium sized crock pot (size of pot 4 quarts or so). Pour in 1 quart of chicken broth. Sprinkle in the seasoning. Add a bit of fresh pepper along with the sage, thyme, rosemary , and garlic.
Cook on high until tender--about 3 & 1/2 hours Or you can cook on low for 7-8 hours. Add the rice and cook another 30 minutes. During the last 5-8 minutes add the baby garden peas (I use frozen--but these tiny ones cook up fast.
