    I've got some chicken in the slow cooker at home, i've added stock, leeks, carrots, onion and swede but i want to thicken it.

    I've got some smash but never used it as a thickener before, do i just chuck it in and stir??

    Just sprinkle and leave for a minute to see if you need to add more. It is best to add it bit by bit so you don't overdo it. I always use it to thicken now.
