I made a lot of changes to this recipe to make it something I will make again. First I used bone in with skin chicken thighs. I cooked the thighs with skins on in a little oil to crisp up the ski with a little bit of the green onion to help flavor it up. and threw the bones I had cut out in the pot. I used 3 Cups of broth and no water. Lastly, if you wait till the last 45-90 minutes of cooking time to throw in the rice, it will fully cook and not become mush. These are small differences that make this recipe much more flavorful.
We appreciate you taking the time to share your comments! Based on such helpful reviews, we were able to adjust this recipe to be more flavorful and have a better finished texture, with additions such as yellow or white onions, swapping Condensed Cream of Chicken for Chicken Broth and serving over rice.

My mom gave me this little cookbook for the slow cooker and I'm always looking for new ideas. This recipe is in the cooker as we speak. I followed the recipe exactly and it seems more like soup. It smells great but the flavor is bland and its too mushy. I'm very annoyed because now I have a family of hungry boys and nothing to serve.
We’re pleased to say that, with the aid of reviews such as yours, we’ve improved this recipe! Among the changes, we’ve enhanced the ingredient list, reduced the liquid used and replaced uncooked rice with prepared rice for a better final product.

Yuck. Total mush. Flavorless. Wish I would have read the reviews. :(
Thanks for your feedback! We’ve revisited this recipe, and have made improvements to the ingredients as well as the preparation to improve the flavor and texture.

As has been noted before, a pretty tasteless mush. Tasteless pineapple. Actually the whole dish was pretty bland. With a name like Pacific Island, it was worth a shot. But this is NOT slow-cooker friendly! If I try it again it will be in the oven, following the cooking directions in the "One Dish Chicken Rice Bake".
