Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice

Holy indoor lighting, Batman!

Chicken and wild rice in any form reminds my of my childhood comfort food. Because of that, I have a few recipes that are very similar (like Old School Chicken and Rice )but I still keep all them in my cookbook!

When I put the chicken into the slow cooker in the morning, I cooked the rice in the microwave and stashed it in the frig, so it was all ready to combined at dinnertime. I also threw in some leftover white rice hiding in the back of the my frig, and it was incorporated nicely.
