Slow Cooker and Chicken and Veg Stew is an easy dinner or lunch as the preparation time is less than 10 minutes, full of protein goodness.
700g (1.5lbs) chicken cut into squares.
1 cup of chopped red onion
1 cup of green and red bell peppers
1 cup of chopped carrots
1 cup of cut up broccoli
2 medium potato’s cut into squares
2 sweet potato’s cut into squares (if you prefer normal or baby potato’s leave out the sweet potato’s)
2 ripe large tomatoes cut into pieces
1 cup of cauliflower chopped
1 tablespoon of Worcester sauce
1 teaspoon of soya sauce
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper or lemon pepper
1 teaspoon of rosemary
1 teaspoon of oregano
2 teaspoons of dried garlic or 3 chopped fresh cloves (because I love garlic, use less if preferred)
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 cups of water with vegetable stock or chicken stock. (or use chicken broth)
Clean and set up the slow cooker.
Switch it on.
Add all the chopped and cut vegetables and chicken to the cooker,
Add the spices and paste and water stock, sauces and then stir all together.
Place the lid on.
Switch the slow cooker to Stews and press start button.
This slow cooker should take at least 6 hours.
Prepare your meal in advance.
You can change the chicken for meat if desired. Use tomato sauce for puree it you do not have it, as well as a can of tomato puree if you do not have ripe tomato’s. Fresh is better. Add any vegetable that are available in the kitchen at the time. Also use baby potato’s instead of medium potato’s.
