Ingredients

  • 2 lb. (about 12) boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 (11.5 oz) jars sweet-and-sour sauce
  • 1 (1-lb.) pkg. frozen broccoli florets, carrots and water chestnuts, thawed, drained*
  • 3 cups uncooked instant rice
  • 3 cups water

Steps

  • 1
    In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, combine chicken and simmer sauce; stir gently to mix.
  • 2
    Cover; cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours or until chicken is no longer pink.
  • 3
    Before serving, stir in thawed vegetables. Increase heat to high setting; cover and cook an additional 15 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Meanwhile, cook rice in water as directed on package. Serve chicken mixture over rice.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For best results, we recommend boneless, skinless chicken thighs for this recipe. Chicken breasts tend to dry out when cooked in a slow cooker.
  • tip 2
    Feel free to serve with noodles or brown rice instead of white rice, if desired.
