Thanks to the hard work of a slow cooker, this savory entrée, made with just 6 ingredients, packs serious flavor into simple chicken and rice.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds bone-in chicken drumsticks or thighs (about 10 small pieces total)
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/3 cup peach preserves, apricot preserves or canned whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 3/4 cups instant brown rice
  • 1 can (15- to 20-oz.) fruit of your choice (sliced peaches, tropical fruit, fruit cocktail or pineapple chunks), drained

  1. To remove skin from chicken, use a paper towel to grasp a loose edge of the chicken skin. Use other hand to firmly grasp chicken meat and bone. Pull with paper towel until skin is removed from chicken. Discard skin. Place chicken pieces in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker.
