Dorm Room Recipe: Crockpot Chicken and Rice


With college students headed back to campus, we’ve been putting together some easy recipes that can be thrown together easily in a dorm room.

Now, a couple readers came forward to remind us that cooking in a dorm room is not allowed at some colleges. Those colleges should be abandoned, or students should begin a violent culinary revolution and reclaim their grub.

This recipe only requires some basic ingredients and a crockpot. The result is hearty enough to keep students fueled while they storm the admin building to regain the right to cook more than Ramen.
