Slow Cooker Rhubarb Chicken Recipe

Slow Cooker Rhubarb Chicken Recipe
When one thinks of rhubarb, it’s usually connected to dessert. However, rhubarb can also be used in main dishes, like the following Slow Cooker Rhubarb Chicken. When mixed with onions and savory dry onion soup mix, rhubarb takes on a different and unique character than when it’s used in desserts. This easy chicken dish cooks in the slow cooker unattended and takes only 10 minutes or so hands-on time to assemble. It’s good served over rice.
The rhubarb season varies depending on location, and since the season is short, it’s a good idea to make several dishes with it before it’s gone. Once the rhubarb has cooked with the onions, it is not really recognizable since the color cooks out. You might want to garnish with parsley to add a little color.

2 cups sliced rhubarb
1 large onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
