    I have Slimminggirl. It has been fine. I do put in a couple of balls of foil to stop any sticking. Only because I was told I should.

    I have also cooked a whole chicken - skin as well. It is so succulent - really. The skin comes off so easily. I keep any juice in the bottom for gravy. I usually keep the gravy to go cold then use it another day. Not much fat though.

    Try it, you will be surprised. I ALWAYS put my on low setting.

    Thanks for the tips :)

    The gammon has been in since 8am this morning on low, I didn't bother cutting the fat off beforehand but I checked it bout an hour ago and the fat literally slid off on it's own, bonus!
    It smells amazing, I've put some paprika and some chopped apple in too... can't wait to eat it now :) xx

    Just made a lovely chilli in the slow cooker using some leftover turkey. It feels so nice to have some real food after days of eating rubbish!!

    Aww, thanks guys! That nearly choked me up!! I'd only popped on here to leave a recipe and I spotted both your lovely comments. :) So kind!

    CHICKEN WITH CHORIZO FOR THE SLOW COOKER - Serves 4

    4 Syns per serving

    6 skinless chicken thighs
    220g chorizo, diced - 13 Syns
    1 red onion, thinly sliced
    2 small leeks, thoroughly washed and thickly sliced
    1 tsp. ground coriander
    1 tsp. dried thyme
    1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
    1 yellow pepper, deseeded and chopped
    2 cloves of garlic, crushed
    400g can chopped tomatoes
    100ml chicken stock
    4 tbsp. sherry - 1.5 Syns

    Pre-heat the slow cooker, if necessary.
    If you like, you can brown the chicken off on all sides, in a pan sprayed with Frylight. I never bother.
    Put the thighs in the bottom of the slow cooker.
    Put the chorizo pieces into a non-stick pan and cook until crisped up and all the oils have been released. Chorizo is just about the only ingredient I pre-cook before adding to the slow cooker.
    Tip the chorizo, minus the oils, on top of the chicken in the slow cooker.
    Just because the chorizo oil is there, you can cook the onion and leeks in the oils for a while, before adding to the slow cooker.
    Stir the coriander, thyme, peppers and garlic into the slow cooker.
    Add in the tomatoes, chicken stock and sherry and season with black pepper. if you wish to add any salt, take care because of the chorizo, which can be quite salty.
    Make sure everything is mixed together.
    Cook on Low for 6-8 hours or on High for 4 hours.

    Gorgeous served with mash and lots of crunchy veg.

    This is a take on a recipe by a lady called Abbe.
