My favourite slow cooker recipe

I love the idea of a slow cooker. You pop all your ingredients in it in the morning and by tea time you have your meal ready without much fuss. The house also smells amazing too. In day 3 of my Blogtober challenge, I reveal my favourite slow cooker recipe and tell you where you can find it.

As the days start to feel much shorter in autumn, it’s always good to have one less thing to do after work – to not think about having to start dinner and then deal with too much washing up afterwards. With a slow cooker, the meal is ready when you want it and the slow cooker bowl can be soaked over night ready for cleaning the next day. The plates and cutlery can wait too.

Yes, it takes a little preparation in the morning, but you know it’ll be worth it later on. And with a lot of slow cooker recipes, you don’t have to pre-cook or pre-fry ingredients on the hob first. Just chuck it all in the slow cooker, give it a stir, and leave it for the required number of hours cooking time, depending on what it is

I’ve tried quite a few different slow cooker recipes over the years, some more successful than others. They key things to remember for me are, don’t buy cheap meat as it can go a bit chewy, and use a thickener if the dish turns out too watery.

so what is my favourite slow cooker recipe?

Peanut chicken. This recipe by Scott Baptie on his Facebook page is so easy, and absolutely delicious. If you love chicken satay dishes, you must try this recipe. It’s pinned near the top of his Facebook page, so I’m hoping you can find it ok.

This recipe is from Scott’s The High Protein Handbook 4 which I bought a few months ago. I need to dig it out again and try out some more recipes.

    Ooooh I do love chicken satay and this feels like a lovely way to create a fave chinese dish without the risk of any added nasties that would make me ill. Will add it to the list of ideas to try x

      It’s definitely got no nasties in it. Hope you enjoy it if you give it a try πŸ™‚ And it’s even nicer the next day when all the flavours have mixed x

    I do love a good slow cooker recipe. I made a really nice turkey chilli dish. I’m not a fan of chilli but Mr O is. I gave it a go and really liked it. I might have to try this peanut chicken one some time.

    • Alice says:

      I’m not a fan of chilli neither. Let me know if you do try this peanut chicken, I’d love to know if you (and Mr O) enjoyed it πŸ™‚
