Drunken Rosemary Chicken with Basmati Rice

Sunset OCTOBER 2000

  • Yield: Makes 4 to 6 servings


  • 8 chicken thighs (2 3/4 to 3 lb. total)
  • Salt and fresh-ground pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely chopped fresh rosemary leaves or dried rosemary
  • 1 cup Chardonnay or other dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup fat-skimmed chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups precooked dried white rice
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions (including tops)
  • Rosemary sprigs, rinsed


1. Rinse thighs and pat dry. Pull off and discard skin; trim off and discard lumps of fat. Sprinkle thighs lightly with salt and pepper.

2. Place thighs in a 4 1/2-quart or larger electric slow-cooker. Sprinkle with garlic and chopped rosemary; pour wine and broth over chicken.

3. Cover and cook until meat pulls easily from the bone, about 5 hours on low, 3 hours on high.

4. Skim and discard fat from juices. Add rice and mix to moisten evenly. Turn cooker to high; cover and cook, stirring several times, until rice is just tender to bite, about 5 minutes. Spoon chicken and rice onto a platter. Sprinkle with onions and garnish with rosemary sprigs. Add salt and pepper to taste.
