Slow Cooker Carolina Chicken and Rice

Well, y'all know I love to support local ... local farmer's, local markets, local food artisans and more, so it should come as no surprise to many of you when I discovered, and "liked" Carolina Creole.

I quickly became acquainted with the Luquire Family, through Facebook and the internet and was very intrigued with their Carolina Creole Sauce, Rice and Grits.  I was really enthralled when I discovered they won the "Sofi" (Specialty Food Association) GOLD award this year for their grits.  Read about their win here. Want to know more?  Read about the Luquire Family here!

6-8 chicken tenders, cut into 1/2" - 1" pieces
2 cups chicken broth/stock (make your own)
2 cups Carolina Creole sauce
1 stalk celery, diced
1 small onion, diced
3 large carrots, sliced
2 cups rice, cooked

Place first 6 ingredients into a slow cooker.  Cook on low 4-6 hours or until done.  Serve over hot, cooked rice (cook according to package instructions).

*Note - this dish can be cooked on your stove top in a large pan or stock pot.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.
