Ingredients

500g skinless chicken thighs, cubed 1 medium sweet potato, cut into small cubes 1 onion, sliced 3 cloves garlic, crushed 100g pearl barley 2 tsp cumin 125ml chicken or vegetable stock 400g tin chopped tomatoes
Preparation method

1. Brown chicken, garlic and onion in a frying pan, then add to slow cooker pot
2. Add all other ingredients, stir, put on lid and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 2-4 hours.
3. Serve with rice, or, add extra barley and just have it as is - so yummy! Be sure to fiddle with the amount of cumin you add to


This is yum & sin free. You made need more stock as mine dried out while I was out :eek: It freezes well

How ridiculous that we are in the middle of May and still talking about winter recipes!! I woke up very early this morning and some of the cars had frost on the windscreens!

But it really does sound lovely. And very adaptable.

Barley does have a tendency to soak up an awful lot of liquid, so I usually add a bit more just in case.

I like the sound of this. Just contemplating buying a slow cooker at the moment. Looking around for recipes to see if it's worth buying one. Like the idea of chicken and barley, thanks for posting :)

Why do you crush the barley?

Oooh hey that sounds delicious! I'm not doing Slimming World so do you mind if I try the recipe out for myself anyway? It sounds so nice and I love barley and bought a slow cooker last winter (have been stuck for things to cook in it! :p )

Sounds lovely. I must get some chicken thighs this week, and try it. My slow cooker is full of lamb tagine at the moment: haven't tried it yet, but it smells yummy.

Chicken thighs always sound a bit yukky to me, so will try to substitute with chicken breast as I really want to give it a go. Sounds different to everything else I have been cooking!!!

TY just the kick up the bum I needed to get me back on track xx
