WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

LIME CHICKEN AND RICE

If you follow my blogs you know I never eat chicken. However, many of you do and you constantly want more chicken recipes. I hope you like this one.

1 1/4 lb boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/3 cup lime juice
2 cups chicken broth
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp butter
2 cups uncooked instant rice
Chopped cilantro for garnish, if desired

Place the chicken in slow cooker/crock pot.

Combine the lime juice and chicken broth; pour over the chicken.

Add the garlic, thyme, pepper, and butter.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low 8 to 10 hours or on high 4 to 6 hours until chicken is very tender.

During the last 15 minutes of cooking time, stir in the rice.
