  1. Courtney C.

    You may need to add water as it cooks as in step six. The amount of water varies, depending on how much juice the chicken breast creates. However, the Minute Rice does take longer then normal to cook since it is in the crock pot, but it will absorb a lot of liquid.

  2. Binkey

    If you cook it for another 45 Minutes, Wont the Rice get all soggy/gummy?
    Being that it is Minute Rice.
