Easy Chicken Perlo


  • 2 cups cooked shredded boneless chicken
  • 1/2 cup sliced smoked sausage

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • Stir in shredded chicken, sliced sausage, peas, and the white parts of the sliced onions.
  • Stir in olive oil, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Turn on the cycle on the rice cooker.
  • After rice cooker shuts off, stir to blend all ingredients.

Tip: I almost always cook extra chicken when I am cooking with the slow cooker. Usually, I make enough chicken for two different chicken dishes. Of course this does depend on the spices you add to cook with the chicken. Choose two recipes that will work with those spices, and the different ingredients you add to each recipe.
