Here’s another favorite that takes only five minutes to assemble. I especially like the way the rice gets soft and mushy and absorbs all that great chicken flavor. It’s definitely my favorite type of rice. This is why we soak the pot immediately, before Mommy gets there with her spoon.

Main ingredients

Start Cooking

For the Chicken and Rice

  1. Place the rice, two cups water, and spices in the slow cooker. Use a spoon to stir and combine. Top with the sweet potatoes and chicken, arranging it all to fit in one layer. Drizzle with honey.

  2. Cook on high for one to three hours. Add the last cup of water, as needed. You can add more water if the rice seems to be getting dry.

  3. Cook for an additional six to eight hours on medium–low.

    But...

    Thank you, Esther Leah. Your suggestion is helpful. Maybe, though, there is some way to not have to make this in stages? Like, set it and forget it kind of thing. With the smallest flame set on the lowest setting. Well, in any case, we'll see what happens and have to report back. Good Shabbos!

    I've never tried to set it and walk away. It is really just two steps. It might work, but be sure to put enough water so the rice doesn't burn. By the way, one of the spices I use is smoked paprika, about 1/2 of a teaspoon and it just takes this dish to a different level. The truth is that I put a lot of sweet paprika, (the Hungarian in me) but as I said, it's good whatever you like. Good luck, let me know and have a great Shabbos.

    Is there a way to make this on the stovetop? Maybe with a low flame?

    I do this on the stovetop all of the time. I don't put sweet potato, but there is no reason not to. I cook chopped onion and garlic till golden and brown the chicken on both sides letting it cook till some of the natural juice come out. Then I cover the chicken with water and add the spices I want (you can as well or use the spicing in this recipe as a guide). At this point, if I were to use sweet potato or any other vegetable, I would add now. let the chicken cook until the juices run clear and the chicken is tender to your liking. Take the chicken out (and added vegetables) on the side. Check to see if there is enough water for the rice. If not add the amount necessary, add a teaspoon of salt, and add the rice. Let the rice cook till done stirring occasionally. Once the rice is done, add the chicken back to the pot. The rice absorbs all of the yummy flavor from the chicken. I have also done this with pasta. It is a hit every time. Good luck

    I've made this again and again!

    I do this recipe in the oven on low and add some water every hour. I love that it's an entire meal in one pan and always comes out great. This is the best rice you've ever had! I do sprinkle some extra spices just onto the chicken; otherwise only the rice has flavoring. Enjoy!

    I do make this in an oven. All the time! Cover tightly and cook on low. You can even do it overnight.

    When you say 'cook on low', what temp do you mean?

    I would do 300 till it's cooked through. I have been known to cook my chicken at 200 overnight but never with rice, so I can't tell you what would happen there.

    I would keep it the same.....Keep an eye on water if it seems dry, add 1/4 cup at a time.
