Expert Tips

  • To quickly remove the skin from a piece of chicken, hold a paper towel and pull the skin away. Removing the skin before cooking helps reduce the amount of fat in the recipe.
  • Since the garlic in this recipe is left whole, it is milder than if it were chopped or crushed. The longer, slower cooking also mellows the garlic. If you like, just before serving, use a fork to crush the garlic cloves against the side of the slow cooker and stir into the rice.
  • Serve with cooked green beans and warm rolls.
