    Just put in a chicken, put the lid on and cook it on low for 6-8 hours. Could it be more simple than that?

    If you look in the winter warmer section there are loads of slow cooker recipes to have a go at

    Hey becca! Here is one that I'm going to try tomorrow (sounds yummy!) This is a recipe that another member (maypole) post a while ago but I saw it last week.

    Chicken and barley stew
    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 might need to add more stock. It freezes well.

    Seems simple enough, I can't wait to try it! Hope you like this idea!

    I made the Chicken and Barley Stew for dinner tonight and it was so so so good!! It makes a lot so we have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!! You will definitely need more stock because the barley totally soaks it all up in no time and I only cooked it for 5 (ish) hours on low!! I hope you get to make it as it's very simple and delicious!! :eat:

    I made the chicken and barley stew too the other day but forgot it was a slow cooker recipe until I read it half an hour before teatime! So I upped the stock to 300ml and did it in the pressure cooker instead, and it was still delicious, will be trying in the slow cooker in a couple of weeks :)
