Well, since everyone is LOVIN their slow cookers, i thought it be good for everyone to share slow cooker recipes so we can all make yummy pointable foods ... Remember, you dont have to stick completely to the recipes, the advantage of slow cookers is you can add to the recipe or take foods away ..

I have a couple of faves ....... (my slow cooker is 3litres)

Chicken stew

Can use Chicken drumsticks or readily chopped chicken
2 carrots sliced
1 onion chopped up finely
200g baby new potatoes
2 chicken oxo cubes
100mls of vegetable stock

Throw it all into the slow cooker (this is the beauty of it) for settings, you can stick it on high for 6-8 hours or low for 10-12 hours (this option is better for if your at work all day) then when your happy with your stew take off the meat from the drumsticks (it should practically fall off the bone) and add in 1 tbsp flour to thicken the stew ... VOILA .. tea ready and youve only been in the house half an hour

You only need to point your chicken, potatoes and stock once you've divided your portions


This would be 4 pro points a portion if sharing between 3 and using approx 400g raw chicken breast

Chicken curry

Oxo curry cubes x2 ( got these from sainsburys)
chicken oxo cubes x1
4 chicken thighs
1/2 tin chopped tomatoes
1 chopped onion

Throw it all into the slow cooker for 10-12 hours ......... when you get home or your happy with your curry remove the lid to reduce some of the fluids ....... half an hour before serving stir in some fat free plain yogurt for a creamier tikka style curry ..
And serve with a rice of your choice.


THIS WOULD BE 4 PRO POINTS A PORTION BASED ON 4 SHARING ( MINUS THE RICE)

Another fabulous option are Swartz SLOW COOKER packets ....

Sausage and bean casserole

1packet of casserole
low fat sausages (8)
1 onion
300mls water
can of beans (any of your choice)

Fry the sausages and onions in a pan. mix the packet with the water. then add everything to your slow cooker. cook for 6-8 hours. if theres too much water at the end, leave the lid off and it will evaporate. then ready to serve.

Thai red curry

One kilogram of trimmed and cut in half chicken thigh fillets
120 grams of Thai red curry paste
One cup of chicken stock
One and a half teaspoons of vegetable oil

Reduce heat on frying pan to low. Add the rest of the oil into a pan. Add curry paste and cook while stirring for about two minutes until an aroma is released. Add stock then stir until the curry paste dissolves. Add the bamboo shoots and mushroom. Pour the mixture over the chicken and stir.
