Learned this from my Italian mama, and it is a huge hit with our family!

Place chicken breasts at the slow cooker’s base.

Evenly spread uncooked rice over the chicken.

Mix diced onion, garlic, diced tomatoes with juice, tomato sauce, chicken broth, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

Pour this tomato mixture over the chicken and rice, ensuring even distribution.

Cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours until the rice is tender and chicken is fully cooked.

Just before serving, top with grated Parmesan.

Garnish with fresh parsley for added color and flavor.

Variations & Tips:

Add a cup of frozen peas 30 minutes before cooking ends for extra texture.

Include red pepper flakes for a spicy twist.

Substitute white rice with brown rice for more fiber, adjusting cooking time as needed.

Use dried minced onion and garlic powder for convenience on busy days.

This recipe is like a lovingly made quilt—simple ingredients, when combined with care, create a comforting experience that resonates with the soul. Share it with your loved ones and let it warm you from the inside out.
