Recipe Notes:

Check the internal temperature of the chicken before the cooking time is up!

  1. At about 3 hours use a thermometer to check the internal temperature.
  2. You will not need to cook it for the full four hour time (especially if you are using thin cuts of chicken).
  3. Slow Cookers/ Crockpots on low are set to 4 hours (typically).
  4. You will want to cook the chicken only until the chicken is fully cooked with an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  5. Once the chicken reaches 165F degrees internally it is finished cooking.
  • Note: Over-cooking can dry out the chicken meat. If you use a thicker cut of chicken it may take longer. Just ensure you get the internal temperature for chicken reached. 

Make the rice about 20 minutes before the dinner has finished cooking.
