    Hi
    Has anyone got any good low calorie slow cooker recipes they could share?

    I've just go mine out of the back of the cupboard. I've had it ages and hardly used it.

    Sorry - I've post this request in another thread, then saw this one specifically for recipes! Apologies. x

    I love to slow cook a whole chicken ~ I just add the whole chicken as is to the pot (skin removed) with no water and cook on high for 5hrs. You've got chicken coming out of your ears afterwards! :D

    Cowboy Stew

    370 Calories
    Makes 6 servings

    1 1/4 lbs. beef stew meat
    4 potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 4" pcs.
    1/2 cup onion, chopped
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. pepper
    1 (28 oz.) can Baked beans in BBQ Sauce

    Mix beef, potatoes, onion, salt and pepper in 3 1/2 qt. to 4 qt. slow cooker. Spread beans over beef mixture. Cover and cook on LOW 8-10 hrs. or until beef is tender.

    I used Minced beef steak and I also added worcestershire sauce, but towards the end it seemed a bit dried up so i added some boiled water - it was absolutely delicious.

    I came across this recipe and decided to have it for tea, delicious.

    Crock Pot "Baked" Potatoes


    190 Calories
    Servings: 4

    • 4 medium russet potatoes
    • aluminum foil
    • Toppings (extra cals): light sour cream, fresh chives, bacon bits, broccoli, cheese

    Wash and scrub potatoes until clean. Dry thoroughly. When dry, prick potatoes with a fork and wrap in aluminum foil.

    Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4.

    The most delicious Baked Potatoes I have ever tried, however, if you like crunchy skin, the skins are quite soft.
