    The slow cooker is great for soups like broth, lentil, rice pudding using milk from hexb, bolognese, chilli, stews, casseroles (chicken or sausage) roasts and whole chickens.

    I have a recipe for Tamarind chilli chicken which is lovely. It's 2 syns but I think it's worth it.

    Serves 4

    8 pieces of skinless chicken
    Frylight
    1 onion chopped
    1 red pepper chopped
    1 red chilli chopped
    2 garlic cloves chopped
    1 tablespoon tamarind paste
    1 tablespoon sweetner
    1 teaspoon ground tumeric
    2 tablespoons plain flour
    450ml chicken stock made with chicken bovril
    salt & pepper
    Coriander to serve
    Spray frying pan with frylight and brown chicken to seal. Once brown remove. Add onion to pan & fry till lightly browned. Add red pepper chilli & garlic cook for 2 mins. Mix in tamarind, sweetner & tumeric. Cook for another minute then mix in flour. Gradually add stock and season to taste. Bring to boil. Put chicken into slow cooker and add sauce. Cover & cook on low for 8-10 hours (if chicken has bones) or 5-6 if breasts. Serve with coriander. Yummmmmm.

    Tamarind can be found where the herbs and spices are.

    Ideas just keep popping into my head!! Another favourite of mine is lamb meatballs with a mint gravy. You make meatballs as normal, brown add to slow cooker and make gravy with mint sauce through it. Lovely!!

    i just found this -

    Hi, I make a lot of curries and always use the following....

    I frylight onions, garlic, chilli and ginger (if I have it) in 2tbsp garam masala, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp turmeric. Once softened add a tin of tomatoes and a tsp sweetner (if reqd) and simmer. This makes a great base for any meat or veg curry and if you like it smooth then you can whizz it up once cooked.
    It's also lovely with some FF natural yoghurt stirred in at the end.
    Also.... if you use a slow cooker, do the onions in the spices in the pan and then chuck everything in the slow cooker.
    Love it!!!

    The lamb meatballs are syn free if you use mint sauce without sugar. Colemans mint sauce doesn't have sugar added and they are yum, honest

    You can always do a roast in the slow cooker - ideal for when you are out for the day or have a cheap joint of beef.

    Simply scrunch up some silver foil to make three x 1" balls or use 2 carrots, put these at the bottom of the slow cooker then rest the joint or whole chicken on top. Cook on low for 6-8 hours and hey presto, all you need to do is boil up some veg and make some gravy.

    You can also add some flavouring, for example, my family like me to add lemon juice, oregano and garlic salt to the chicken; lime and orange to pork joints or a little red wine to the beef

    I've made chops cooked in Spaghetti Bolognese it would be free on a red day if you made the sauce your self It is really nice becuse the chops are really tender from the juices.
