everyone who said it was bland, must've used plain wild rice. lol. very good. i cut back on chicken breasts and added boneless thighs.plus seasoned with a bit of garlic and chicken seasoning. turned out pretty good. ps .tw boxes of uncle ben :"SEASONED": long grain and wild rice was enough.

First of all, this would have to be made in a HUGE crockpot to get SIX breasts in. It was disappointing. In principle this is a good idea, but needs work. I made half the rice recipe with 4 breasts and they fit fine in my large size pot. The chicken turned out very bland. The breasts should be seasoned. At the end, I shredded the chicken and mixed everything together. I didn't use carrots because I am allergic, had I put them in this would have been even blander (and mushier). Also, the long grain and wild rice boxes have less than 1 cup mix so prepare to buy several to get the amount needed. The dish in general is NOT visually attractive. If you are looking to WOW guests, don't choose this one. I suppose it would be good to feed a large group of people but only fixing the flavor. I will mix in some light cream and Parmesan cheese to make it look like a risotto.

This cooked well (the chicken was moist & tender, the rice was cooked & had the right amount of moisture to it, the carrots were not mushy), but I personally did not like the taste of the rice, although normally I like wild rice. My family was not enthused about this, either. I used 2 boxes of wild rice & supplemented w/ 1 cup instant brown rice. I think you could get by w/ 3 boxes of wild rice, though. Also, I would omit the carrots, they don't add anything to the taste. I think this would taste better made w/ plain rice.
