Slow Cooker Herbed Chicken and Rice Pilaf

February 27, 2019

 

This recipe & food came in my CSA bag last week.  The 4 person bag had the chicken breast in it too.  Luckily I had the all the other ingredients the recipe called for on hand.  One thing I love about crock pots is I spend a little time prepping the food in the morning & then at dinner time, when it's most hectic, our meal is done.  It makes life so much easier!!  Try this recipe. I think you will like it . . . my husband & kids did! 

 

From HHM: Becker Farms Chicken Breasts. Parsley, Thyme, Sage, & Rosemary from Healthy Roots.  Healthy Roots has a Fresh Herb Poultry Mix that has Sage, Rosemary, & Thyme all together (picture to the right).  How convenient!!  For the salad: Bibb lettuce from Healthy Roots & Feta from Caprini Creamery.    

 

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups wild rice

3 cups low sodium chicken broth

juice of 1 lemon

2 teaspoons FRESH parsley
