Enjoy these zesty chicken thighs that are slow cooked with chicken broth, herbs and Chinese spices for an Asian style dinner- serve with white rice.

Ingredients

8
bone-in chicken thighs (about 2 lb.), skin removed
2
garlic cloves, minced
1
cup chopped onions
2
medium stalks celery, sliced
2
teaspoons grated gingerroot
1
teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon grated lemon peel
2
(14-oz.) cans chicken broth
2
cups uncooked regular long-grain white rice
4
cups water
6
tablespoons sliced green onions
6
teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  • 1 Place chicken thighs in 3 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker. Top with garlic, onions, celery, gingerroot, five-spice powder, salt and lemon peel. Add broth.
  • 2 Cover; cook on low setting for 5 to 6 hours.
  • 3 About 30 minutes before serving, cook rice in water as directed on package. With slotted spoon, remove chicken from slow cooker; cool until able to handle. Cut chicken from bones; return chicken to slow cooker. Discard bones.
  • 4 To serve, divide rice evenly into individual large shallow soup bowls, spreading rice up sides of bowls. Add chicken and broth. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon green onions and 1 teaspoon cilantro.
Tips  

During slow cooking, the chicken bones will release extra flavor into the broth.

Chinese five-spice powder combines equal parts of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns. This ground seasoning is popular in Asian recipes.

Cook the rice the night before; cool and refrigerate it. Chop the onions, slice the celery and green onions and chop the cilantro and refrigerate them separately. Before serving, microwave the rice in a covered microwave-safe glass bowl on HIGH for 5 to 6 minutes or until hot, stirring once.
