Cherry Side Rice

I've recently learned that Scott doesn't like wild rice. Which baffles me. I think it's awesome. And I love this recipe because it mixes regular rice with the wild rice to get it a bit of a sticky consistency. The dried cherries really add something to this too!

Cherry Side Rice-adapted from Best Fall Recipes by Southern Living

In a lightly greased 3 quart slow cooker, stir in rice and butter until rice is coated. Stir in chicken broth, onion and pepper. Cover and cook on high 3 1/2-4 hours or until rice is tender. Stir in cherries. Turn off heat, cover, and let sit for 15 minutes.
