That chicken, it’s juicy, flavorful and falls apart. There are many components that add up to making this the best crock pot chicken. The boneless, skinless chicken thigh helps to ensure a very juicy meat. The tantalizing sauce made of simple pantry ingredients, fresh garlic and chopped parsley is phenomenal.

That rice, let me spill a few simple tips to make it perfect. One, use salt, butter and one bay leaf to flavor the rice while cooking. No one likes rice that taste bland so make sure you season properly. Two, do not over cook the rice or add too much water. Just like no one likes bland foods, most do not like mushy over cooked rice. Three, last but not least, roast some simple snow peas tossed in salt, pepper, garlic powder and olive oil for a crunchy finish.
