Slow cookers

mommyB

love it
I have one and its brilliant. I do chilli,curry,bolognaise. I have a great ww morocarn chicken recipe that works really well in it ( tho is a discovery recipe I havent worked out pro points yet ). You can do a whole chicken in it which just slide off the bone,sausage casserole i could go on and on

Basically allsorts !! It's lovey coming home ,from work or a day out to a ready cooked meal-less chance of being not bothered to cook and reverting to take away if you've had a bad day.

Are you sensing that I like mine ?

Every week I put a whole chicken in the SC for about 8hrs and like the PP said the meat literally falls off the bone. It means you can get loads of chicken meat for much cheaper than raw fillets and you aren't tempted to eat the skin because it goes all soggy! Pre-WW I had been known to serve up my family chicken meat and just eat all the skin myself! (Nomnomnom but fatfatfat!)

With the SC passata is your bestfriend - 0ppt's cost 25p in Asda and you can make a world of sauces with it

I also love mine. I acutally bought a smaller one, I think 3.5 litres and now I can cook a curry just for me if I want something spicy while doing WW.

I also do chilli in mine.

I absolutely LOVE my slow cooker! I cook everything in it - Beef or chicken stew, sausage casserole, chilli, bolognaise, Irish stew, curries - basically if it has a sauce it gets cooked in the slow cooker!!!! Its great, you just chuck everything in, turn it on and leave it to work its magic lol! My only tips would be to (a) brown off any meat first and (b) add hot liquid (such as stock etc) rather than cold....

I made this tonight for just myself, had a craving for something spicy.

Propoints value.. 6
Difficulty Level, Easy

30g Patak's Korma Paste
1 chicken fillet
100g Potato
also added carrot, onion & half a red pepper.

Dice chicken & mix with Korma Paste

I cooked all this in slow cooker, add 100 ml water and add chicken & veg & potato, cook on medium for 2.5 hours in slow cooker.

I also did a fab Chilli in the slow cooker using the old point system & it worked out at about 7 points without Rice. Planning on doing it again over the weekend and will work out the PP value but I am planning on using chicken instead of lean mince to save me a few points.

Folks - you've inspired me to crack open my as-of-yet unopened SC this weekend and try it. I am still nervous about it though!!
 
I love my slow cooker, sausages, leeks, carrots, pots and sausage casserole sauce in mine last night.....very yum!

Can someone tell me what SC passata is? I mean, I know passata but can't think what SC is? :eek:

It stands for slow cooker. She is saying with the slow cooker, passata is your best friend. I wondered what it meant when I first saw it.
