Think light! Delicate citrus chicken and rice is light on fat and high on flavor.

1/4

1 1/2
cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-ounce carton)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/4
teaspoon pepper
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1
cup uncooked instant rice
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Place chicken in 3- to 4-quart slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients except rice and parsley.
  • 2 Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours. During last 15 minutes of cooking, stir in rice.
  • 3 Remove chicken from cooker. Place cooked rice on each serving plate. Top with chicken. Spoon any remaining juices over chicken. Garnish with parsley.

Expert Tips

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.
