    Chef #527429's Note:

    This recipe originally came from Homemade Gourmet and called for Spanish rice prepared on the side. I got lazy and decided to experiment with the rice. The result: a delicious one dish crock-pot meal that was effortless to prepare! The rice was moist, well cooked, and amazingly cheesy. The chicken also turned out perfectly tender.
