Hey guys , today , I'm gonna make some chicken and rice in the slow cooker .
So let's get cracking .
I'm going to use some rice and frozen mixed vegetables for this .
It's pretty simple recipe .
So I'm gonna use equal parts rice , vegetables and water .
So I'm gonna use two cups of rice .
I'll just show you one .
So I'll put the other one in , in a minute .
So the two cups of rice , two cups of these frozen mixed vegetables and then two cups of water .
And I've used , this is jasmine rice .
I've used brown rice as well and it turned out pretty good .
Now I'm gonna add one of these chicken boon cubes to this .
It says that I use uh two cups of water with one of these cubes .
So that's what I've used .
There's two cups of water in there .
So I'll try to crumble that up the best I can there .
And um also gonna add just a little bit of pepper and a little bit of onion powder .
You know , I like my onion powder .
So we'll Sprinkle in a little onion powder there as well .
Maybe a tablespoon or so .
And we'll get this all mixed up the best that I can for the chicken .
I'm going to use these four chicken thighs .
These were 2 99 a pound .
This is £1.95 .
So these were $5.83 .
I was actually going to get boneless skinless thighs .
But those are like $7 a pound or something .
So I might forget that .
But , so I'm just gonna use these and I'm gonna pull the skin off .
I guess you could use breast if you want it as well .
But I don't really like the way the skin turns out in the slow cooker .
So , um I'm gonna pull it off .
Plus I don't want the extra fat there really .
So if you run hot water over the , the chicken like that , the skin will usually just pull right off and then you can just pull skin right off like that before I get the lid on .
I'm gonna season the chicken with some of this kinder mild barbecue rub on both sides .
Um , this is kind of like seasoning salt .
So you could use seasoning salt if you want it or just salt and pepper or um , even chicken seasoning , just whatever you like .
Now , we'll get the lid on there .
Now , I'm going to cook this for 3.5 hours on high .
It's been 2.5 hours and this chicken looks like it might be done to me .
Let me check the temperature with my quick read thermometer .
Oh , yeah , that's done .
You want it at least 1 65 ?
That's well above that .
So I'm just going to shut it off right there .
I'll let this cool down for a little bit .
Let's see how it looks .
Now , here's how the chicken looks underneath looks good .
And you can see the rice looks like it's cooked pretty well in the vegetables .
So let me get some on a plate and we'll give it a taste test .
This rice is not very salty , which is good because I like putting a little bit of soy sauce on there and eating it that way .
Let's cut into the chicken and see how it looks here .
All right .
That looks pretty good .
OK , we cut off a piece here and we'll try it out .
One thing I will say is the chicken is a little bit drier this way and I think it's for one because I took the skin off .
But also I think the rice soaks up a lot of the moisture in the pot as well , but it is healthier that way .
See what a taste test dog thinks .
If she chokes , we'll know it's dry .
Well , she had to chew a little more than normal , but not bad , I guess .
So , that took 3.5 hours to cook the other day , but it was done in 2.5 today .
But I did have the pot turned on in the beginning of the video when I was getting everything in there and stuff .
So that might be why .
So I'll say 3.5 on high , but might be able to start checking it at about 2.5 .
Anyway , I'll write all the ingredients in the description .
Thanks for watching .
See you guys .
