Crockpot Chicken Sausage and Rice
Crockpot Chicken Sausage and Rice is a quick and easy meal that you and your family will enjoy. Chicken and sausage are two meats that go together well. That is because sausage often has a rich and deep flavor, and chicken can pick up on and complement other, heavier flavors such as those found in sausage. So, together, the chicken and sausage are a great combination. The rice for this recipe is a white rice, but you could use black, or brown, or whatever type of rice that your family favors. You might have to adjust the liquid to accommodate the different type of rice that you might use for this recipe.
This is a quick and easy dish to make that is loaded with protein, carbohydrates and great ingredients. The two kinds of peppers, red and green, not only add super flavor and color, but they are also highly nutritious, as well. Celery is another terrific ingredient that adds much needed fiber to any recipe where it is used. Fiber is one component where almost every North American could use a little bump. So add plenty to this dish. As always, casseroles (a crock pot is a casserole in a pot, really) can be casual and accommodating about their proportions, so do not worry too much about the amount of veggies, meat or chicken. Add what you have and this dish will still taste fabulous.
This dish cooks for about eight hours, until the meat is sweet and tender and falls apart when you touch it. Serve this dish with big slices of thick, home made bread. This is a great dish for a night at home in front of the television, a comfort food for the entire family. Enjoy it soon.
