To Freeze/Slow Cook

  • 1 can (28 oz) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 20 oz boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 red and/or yellow bell peppers, cut into large strips
  • 1 large onion, halved and cut into 1/2-inch slices

To Serve

  • 4 cups hot cooked white rice
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill weed

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, mix tomatoes, paprika, salt and garlic. Add chicken, bell peppers and onion; mix well. Divide evenly between two labeled 1-gallon freezer bags. Lay flat, and freeze up to 3 months.
  • 2
    Thaw 12 to 24 hours in refrigerator, until completely thawed.
  • 3
    Pour contents of bags into 4 1/2-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 4 to 5 hours.
  • 4
    Divide rice among 8 bowls. Divide chicken mixture among bowls of rice. Top each bowl with 1 tablespoon sour cream and 3/4 teaspoon dill.

  • Like it hot? Substitute a teaspoon of hot Hungarian paprika for some of the smoked paprika.
  • While a rice cooker makes quick work of a starchy side for this dish, you can skip a step by using frozen cooked rice.
