Stock Foto Chicken with rice and green peas in a slow cooker

Using a slow cooker, you can easily and quickly cook chicken with rice, while the rice will be appetizingly friable, and the chicken will be juicy. Fried vegetables – onions, bell peppers, garlic, cilantro (use hard stems and leave the leaves for serving), olives – and saffron fragrant seasoning will add more flavor to your dish. Only green peas are heated separately in the microwave and added to rice with chicken at the very end. So you will not digest it, and it will add more juiciness to the dish.

When the crock-pot warms up, add olive oil, then add chopped vegetables and salt. Fry, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has evaporated and the vegetables are soft, 6-8 minutes.

  4. At the end of the pressure cooker cycle, relieve pressure naturally for 10 minutes, and then carefully open the valve to relieve residual pressure. Turn off the slow cooker and remove the lid. Loosen the rice and gently stir in the green peas. Arrange the chicken and rice in plates. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro.
