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.
