Updated Nov 3, 2010

Ingredients

  • 8 bone-in chicken thighs (about 2 lb.), skin removed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 2 medium stalks celery, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons grated gingerroot
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 2 (14-oz.) cans chicken broth
  • 2 cups uncooked regular long-grain white rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 6 tablespoons sliced green onions
  • 6 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro

Steps

  • 1
    Place chicken thighs in 3 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker. Top with garlic, onions, celery, gingerroot, five-spice powder, salt and lemon peel. Add broth.
  • 2
    Cover; cook on low setting for 5 to 6 hours.
  • 3
    About 30 minutes before serving, cook rice in water as directed on package. With slotted spoon, remove chicken from slow cooker; cool until able to handle. Cut chicken from bones; return chicken to slow cooker. Discard bones.
  • 4
    To serve, divide rice evenly into individual large shallow soup bowls, spreading rice up sides of bowls. Add chicken and broth. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon green onions and 1 teaspoon cilantro.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    During slow cooking, the chicken bones will release extra flavor into the broth.
  • tip 2
    Chinese five-spice powder combines equal parts of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns. This ground seasoning is popular in Asian recipes.
  • tip 3
    Cook the rice the night before; cool and refrigerate it. Chop the onions, slice the celery and green onions and chop the cilantro and refrigerate them separately. Before serving, microwave the rice in a covered microwave-safe glass bowl on HIGH for 5 to 6 minutes or until hot, stirring once.
