time it's less of a recipe and more a guesstimate but I use chicken breast seasoned liberally with cajun spice (quick cheat!) and throw them in the slow cooker with onions, peppers, a tin of toms, knorr chicken stock pot, garlic and a bit of chilli if you like heat. Shread the chicken and add broccoli about 10 mins before serving...it's a time saving fave here but not a culinary master piece!
