A New Take on Slow Cooker Chicken

Janet Groene's
Slow Cooker Saffron Chicken 

      Clever you, throwing this together in the slow cooker so you can forget it until supper time. Enjoy all the fun your campground has to offer while your dinner cooks itself. Tennis, anyone? 
A smart sauce on marinated chicken means you don’t have to brown it first. Hate chicken? Make this with beef patties or boneless pork chops instead. A boxed rice mix saves time while adding a celebration flavor. 

6 portions skinless chicken (bone in or boneless)
1/3 cup lemon or lime juice
1 teaspoon smoked paprika

Put juice and smoked paprika in a plastic bag and squish to mix. Then add chicken or other meat of choice. Seal bag and let stand 30 minutes, turning bag occasionally.

8-ounce package saffron rice mix
½ cup spaghetti broken in small pieces
2 teaspoon powdered chicken bouillon
½ teaspoon turmeric
2 cups water
16-ounce package broccoli and cauliflower florets,  thawed
2 cans condensed cream soup (chicken, mushroom and/ or celery)
½ cup white wine, broth or water
1 teaspoon dried tarragon

In this order: 
Put rice mix, spaghetti and turmeric in the pan and stir in water. Top with vegetables but do not stir again.
Use tongs to remove chicken. Arrange chicken pieces over vegetables. Discard plastic bag and leftover juice.
In a bowl whisk soups with water or wine and tarragon. Spoon over chicken pieces. Cook 6 hours on Low or 4 hours on High.  Put sauce-covered chicken on plates. Stir rice mixture and add to the plate.
