  • 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.

    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.

Expert Tips

  • To quickly thaw vegetables, place in colander or strainer; rinse with warm water until thawed. Drain well.
  • For best results, we recommend boneless, skinless chicken thighs for this recipe. Chicken breasts tend to dry out when cooked in a slow cooker.
  • Feel free to serve with noodles or brown rice instead of white rice, if desired.
