Slow Cooker Lime Garlic Chicken #SundaySupper

Welcome to Sunday Supper's Slow Cooker edition.

The days are getting shorter but our schedules sure aren't, which is the perfect reason to use your slow cooker and why I'm going to keep this short and sweet!

We have a fantastic line up ranging from breakfast to dessert and everything in between, all made in that fantastic little counter top cooker that we all love and know as a slow cooker (or crock pot if you're old school like me).

If your days are as busy as mine (and maybe even more so) there's no reason you still can't enjoy a good home cooked meal with your family. So let's get started.

Slow Cooker Lime Garlic Chicken

Printable Version

1 1/2 lbs bone-in, skinless chicken thighs
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon summer savory or thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup uncooked brown rice

Place the chicken in a 3-4 quart slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients except for the rice. Cover and cook on low for about 8-10 hrs. During the last hour of cooking, stir in the rice. Turn the heat to high and continue cooking for another hour or until rice is done.

Remove the chicken. Place the rice on a serving platter and top with the chicken, pouring any remaining juices over the chicken. Serve with a side of your favorite vegetables.

Simple, and delish! Of course the chicken falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. The broth and juices make for an amazing rice. The prep is minimal but the results are major!

  1. I have yet to cook chicken in a slow-cooker. Yours looks so good that it is giving me the nudge to try it soon.

  2. Love this! And easy. I'm not a fan of chicken breast in the crockpot, so love your choice of thighs here. Thanks for sharing the recipe, my workweek dinners have just gotten easier.

  3. I love how the rice is added at the end and is cooked in the delicious juices from the chicken! This looks like one amazing meal!

  4. Love everything about this recipe, it looks delicious!!

  5. I love lime, and I love chicken...I also love simple. What a great idea!

  6. I love the simplicity of this dish and I bet the flavor is incredible!

  7. Danielle, I love the fresh lime juice combined with the chicken. Bet that rice is amazing!

  8. This is one of my favorite Sunday Suppers. I love the good food with minimal effort you can get with slow cookers. It allows me to more easily invite people over. Your lime and garlic chicken is one of those 'company' main dishes.
