- 1 cup dry wild rice
- 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 6 cups organic, lower-sodium chicken broth or stock
- 1 cup chopped carrots
- 1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
- 3 stalks celery, chopped (about 1 cup)
- 1 tsp. dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary
- 1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans
- 1/2 cup half-and-half
- 2 tbs. butter
Rinse the rice, if directed on package. Place the chicken breasts, chicken broth or stock, rice, carrots, onion, celery, thyme, and rosemary in a large slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for about 7 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through.
Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and transfer to a bowl. Use two forks to shred the chicken. Return the chicken to the slow cooker.
In a blender or food processor, blend together the beans (undrained) and half-and-half until very smooth. Pour the mixture into the slow cooker along with the butter. Cook for 30 minutes to heat through. Spoon into bowls to serve.

You could make this flavorful Hawaiian-inspired dish in a slow cooker, but my pressure-cooker version will get you a giant pile of smoky, fork-tender pork in a fraction of the time. It’s delicious as is — or you can crisp it up and make carnitas, add it to a frittata, or make tacos with it.
