Herbed Chicken with Wild Rice

Last weekend, friends M&B gave us a slow cooker recipe cardlemon chicken0508 (2) magazine when joined us for dinner at The Frog & PenguINN.  Looking through it, I found several recipes we’ll be sampling in the next few weeks, especially when after  a long day outside neither of us wants to cook – as much as we enjoy it.

This recipe was tried lover the weekend.  Since I didn’t have all the exact ingredients available, and didn’t want to go shopping,  substitutions were made as noted with asterisks (*)

Herbed Chicken with Wild Rice

  • 6 bone-in chicken breast halves, skin removed *
  • 3 C cubed red potatoes
  • 1 lb. fresh baby carrots *
  • 1 package (14 oz.) frozen pearl onions, thawed *
  • 2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
  • 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup *
  • ½ C water
  • ½ C lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¼  tsp salt

Note: substitutions in order – bone-in chicken thighs,  whole carrots peeled and cut in lengths, cut-up sweet onion, cream of mushroom soup.

  1. Combine carrots, potatoes, onions and celery in a 5 or 6 qt. slow cooker. Top with chicken.
  2. Combine the soup (undiluted), water, lemon juice, thyme parsley, pepper and salt. Pour over chicken and cover.
  3. Cook on low for 8-9 hours or until a meat thermometer readslemon chicken0508 (1) 170°. 
  4. Serve with wild rice.

Then you can enjoy dessert – or maybe the other way around?

forget the chicken and rice and send me that pretty crock pot. since i don't like to cook, a crockpot is the best way for a non cooking person to cook

That sounds delicious. Cooking in the crockpot is one way that lets you make something yummy and impressive with little work.

The crockpot sure makes cooking easy and clean-up is easier too cause all the prep work was done up frontg. You might like this recipe Mona and Daisy. Sorry, Sandra but we like this crockpot too. There's always another day to try this dish, Elaine.
