    Hi everyone, I bought a slow cooker a while ago and haven't got round to using it yet. I'm calorie counting at the moment and wondered if any of you have any low calorie recipes I could use (I'm a rubbish cook, so simple ones please :) lol).

    Would be much appreciated

    Thanks :)

    Calorie counting plain and simple :)
    A nice one I had from a recipe book is very simple:

    chicken breasts
    1tbsp hoisin sauce
    1tbsp soy sauce
    1tbsp sweet chilli sauce
    1tbsp ketchup
    1tbsp apricot jam

    Trust me it's yummy. Quite dry, not the usual stew type things.

    I've done some lovely soups in the slow cooker. The latest was a kind of broccoli & bacon soup.

    There's soooo much stuff though, I'd advise getting a good recipe book.

    I only know how to do low carb in the slow cooker, I haven't learned any calorie counted recipes yet. I guess if you know what you're putting in you can work it out but it seems like too much hard work! I could do with a good book with the calorie count per portion worked out, does anyone have any recommendations?
