Slow cookers aren’t exactly famous for creating crispy textures, but with last-minute help from the broiler, you can have the best of both worlds — savory wild rice and meltingly tender chicken with crispy, crunchy, delicious skin.

Ingredients

2
cups thinly sliced yellow onions
1 1/2
cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1
cup uncooked wild rice
1
cup diced carrots
8
oz button mushrooms, sliced
2
teaspoons salt
2
tablespoons butter, melted
1/2
teaspoon ground black pepper
1
package (20 oz) bone-in skin-on chicken thighs (about 4)
1/4
cup chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
1
tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

Directions

  • 1 Spray 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Mix onions, broth, wild rice, carrots, mushrooms and 1 teaspoon of the salt in slow cooker. In large bowl, mix melted butter, remaining 1 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Add chicken; toss to coat. Place chicken on top of rice mixture in slow cooker. Pour any remaining butter mixture over chicken. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 7 hours or until liquid is absorbed in rice.
  • 2 Position oven rack 4 inches from broiling element. Line rimmed baking pan with foil. Set oven control to broil. Gently transfer chicken to pan, skin side up. Broil 2 to 5 minutes or until skin is crisp. Serve chicken with wild rice mixture, topped with herbs.
Tips  

For extra flavor, use cremini mushrooms in place of plain white buttons.

Like a little cheese with your wild rice? Serve rice topped with shredded sharp Cheddar, Gruyère or Parmesan cheese.
