Easy does it with this super simple slow cooker rice dinner with chicken and yummy creamy basil flavor.
This summer, we’re going to slow it down. We’re going to take in the scenes, take a chill pill, take a breather and take time to enjoy it all.
And for dinner, we’re going to eat this easy-peasy Slow Cooker Creamy Basil Chicken and Rice
. Because when it’s a summer of slowin’ down, there’s nothing like the slow cooker to help us out.
When I say this recipe is easy-peasy, I mean it. It takes literally five minutes to throw together, and that’s it – no oven required, either (bonus in the summer!).
A few hours later, BAM – dinner is ready. It’s actually really not that intense, but I thought I’d bring home the point of how easy this is to make. Ahem.
ANYWAY, let’s hurry up and make some chicken and rice already, shall we? I’m ready to get to taking it slow!
First, round up your ingredients. We’re going to use Progresso’s yummy Creamy Parmesan Basil Recipe Starters to creamify and flavorify this recipe (those are real actions, ya know).
Place the chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker, then pour the Recipe Starters cooking sauce on top.
Scatter chopped onion, baby carrots and minced garlic on top, then cover it and leave it be to cook. (Psst – now’s a good time to take it easy!)
Also, if you haven’t cooked up your rice yet, now’s a good time to do so.
About a half-hour before the slow cooker is done cooking, stir in some frozen peas, salt and pepper to taste. Whew! The hard part’s over.
To serve, spoon some of the chicken mixture over a heap of cooked rice. That’s it and that’s all. The end.
Time to relax. Time to chill out. Time to take it down a notch. And BAM -- time to eat.Stephanie (aka Girl Versus Dough) needs more time to chill out and eat her fifth bowl of chicken and rice.
