    I have a large package of chicken thighs in the freezer that I want to use this Shabbos for dinner. If I put uncooked brown rice in the crock pot under the chicken, how much more liquid do I have to add. I have never made rice in the crock pot.

    KK- How long do you plan to cook the chicken? Here is a crockpot rice recipe from here: Perfect Crock Pot Rice. It's from Mirj. She does say to stir occasionally, but the water amounts look the same as for cooking rice regularly. Obviously you won't add butter if you're cooking chicken. I use my crockpot a LOT, but have never made rice in it. I would add another half cup of water to start and keep an eye on it; if you can, if the chicken will take more than 3 hours to cook. The chicken will add some moisture to the rice. If I try this I would probably use chicken broth instead of water, just to make sure of that chicken-y taste!

    Here's a recipe for chicken and rice in the crockpot: Crock Pot Chicken and Rice
    This has 1 1/2 cups of water but also 20 ounces of condensed soup... hmmm.....you'd have to tweak that a bit.

    Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

    That recipe wasn't much help. I am going to just try putting the rice at the bottom of the crock pot under the chicken and adding enough water or broth to cover. I will be serving this Friday night. I am using bone in thighs so they can cook for 6-7 hours on low. I think that will be alright for the rice also. Thanks for the help.

    I've made chicken and rice in the oven, just putting raw rice under the chicken, and then pouring in a cup and a half of broth, cover and bake. You could try this method in the crock if you're brave enough, and please let us know what happened in the end!

    Sorry it took so long to post the results of my rice in the crock pot. Busy week of babysitting which means no time for the computer. Anyway, I used a cooking bag in my crock pot incase the rice got too dry. I put the rice at the bottom and the chicken pieces on top. Used one box of chicken broth and about 1/2 c. of water. It cooked for 8 hours on low. The rice was soft and soaked up all the liquid from the broth and the chicken. Next time I will use less rice and cut down the liquid a bit. This turned out delicious and I will make it again.
