    1. I definitely think so. You will just want to make sure the liquid covers the rice in the crockpot. Let us know how it turns out!

  1. Could I cook this in the oven instead? I don’t like using the crockpot when I’m not home and my husband generally pops the freezer meals in the oven.

  2. Does the chicken dry out when cooked this long? I’ve cooked whole chicken breasts in a few hours on long in my crock and they always seem to dry out. THanks!

    1. Stacy, I found when my chicken always dried out in my slow cooker it was because my slow cooker was getting too hot and needed replacing. With my new one, I never have dried out chicken- it was amazing and I wish I would have done it earlier. Others have tried adding a liquid and that helps as well. But, you can always check these around 5 hours to see if they are done if you don’t want to chance 7 hours.

      1. Thanks for your reply! I actually just replaced my slow cooker because my original one died, and since then I am having trouble with everything drying out. Even my pot roast is tough and not tender. What kind of crock pot do you use that you love? Thanks again 🙂

        1. Actually, I find that things are more tender with a SLOW AND LOW motto. LIterally, lower temp, longer time. The higher the temp, the drier my chicken.
