Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala and Rice

Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala and Rice  Dinner

I’m always trying to think up new ways to make dinners in the slow cooker. For such a long time, I only used my slow cooker for pulled pork and the occasioanl soup or stew. But now, I use my slow cooker at least once a week. It’s such an easy way to prepare a delicious meal.

For this recipe, I just used chicken thighs, along with marsala wine and Progresso’s Recipe Starters in Creamy Portabella Mushroom. This cooking sauce gave my slow cooker chicken marsala the most wonderful flavor and lots of rich creaminess. You can serve this chicken over pasta, but I choose white rice, mainly because it’s so easy to cook in my rice cooker. I just kept my rice warm in the cooker sitting by the rice cooker. It was a great dinner to serve my family.
