This dish is full of flavor, juicy chicken and vegetables. It is so easy to make, put everything together the night before then plug in your crockpot in the morning. When you get home you have this amazing dinner waiting for you. Anyone can make this.
- Large crockpot with lid
- Cutting board and knife
- Sauce pan for cooking rice
- Large spoon
- Large platter
- 1 whole chicken, rinse
- 1 green pepper (membrane removed, diced or sliced)
- 1/2 Vidalia sweet onion (peeled, diced or sliced)
- 1 cup of water
- Lemon pepper
- Garlic salt
- Dried oregano
- 6 fresh basil leaves
Place your whole chicken in the crockpot and pour your water in.
Now cover the entire chicken with lemon pepper and garlic salt. Using all of your vegetables place some on top and allow some to fall to the sides. Add your fresh basil leaves, allow some to fall to the sides as well. Now cover your dish with oregano.
Place the lid on your crockpot, set on low and cook for 6 to 8 hours.
Once your chicken is cooked, begin making your rice. Use the manufacturer directions, I add about 1 table spoon of salt to cook.
Once your rice is cooked place your chicken carefully on your serving platter. Its going to fall apart. Its ok.
To serve, put about 1 cup of rice on your dinner plate, slice or pull apart the chicken and place it on top of your rice. Now add some vegetables. Using a ladel or a cup, pour some of the chicken drippings from the crockpot over your dish.
