  • Wash and pat dry chicken
  • Whisk together canola oil, orange juice, beer can seasoning and paprika and brush all over bird
  • Heat skillet or multi-cooker over medium high heat (or to about 400 degrees)
  • Add chicken breast side down and let brown for about 4-6 minutes
  • Flip over and transfer to slow cooker or switch multi-cooker to slow cook
  • Add broth and then cover and cook on high for about 4 hours or low for about 8 or until chicken is fully cooked (165 degrees)
  • Remove chicken from slow cooker and stir in rice
  • Cover and return to high for 10-20 minutes or until rice is cooked and tender


I cooked this on low in my 4 quart multi-cooker for 8 hours, then on high for 15 minutes to cook the rice
Optional: slice an orange and place on top of chicken before cooking for even more citrus flavor
