Think light! Delicate citrus chicken and rice is light on fat and high on flavor.
package (1 pound 4 ounces) bone-in skinless chicken thighs
cup fresh lime juice (2 limes)
cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-ounce carton)
cloves garlic, finely chopped
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
tablespoons butter or margarine
cup uncooked instant rice
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired
Place chicken in 3- to 4-quart slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients except rice and parsley.
Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours. During last 15 minutes of cooking, stir in rice.
Remove chicken from cooker. Place cooked rice on each serving plate. Top with chicken. Spoon any remaining juices over chicken. Garnish with parsley.
Bone-in chicken works best in slow cookers. The bones help keep the chicken in one piece during the long cooking time.
Serve with a tossed green salad or steamed fresh vegetables.
Garnish with fanned lime slices.
