I've recently been gifted a small slow cooker, can't remember the capacity but one of the smallest sizes. Looking for some very simple ideas as to what I can throw in and how long to leave it on for? Any slow cooker experts here?

Sorry, I do have another thread on here just now.

Lime, chilli and coriander shredded chicken

Skinless chicken thighs (4-6) zest of a lime, 2 chopped garlic cloves, red chilli to taste and a bunch coriander - cut the the garlic, chilli and coriander stalks finely ( if you have a pestle and mortar grind them with the chilli and garlic) rub into the chicken thighs along with the lime zest. Put in slow cooker for 6 hours. Serve with the coriander leaves, as fajitas with salad , lime wedges and wraps.

Potato and bacon hot pot

Slice an onion (and /or some leeks) finely. Slice potatoes into rounds. Grease slow cooker with a little butter.

Layer potatoes, onions, bacon lardons (thyme is nice added, and season each layer ) into slow cooker. Pour on chicken stock until 2/3rds up to the top layer. Don't be tempted to put in more liquid or it will be watery. Leave for 6-8 hours. Serve with a green salad.

Chilli. Usual recipe but just tip it all in the slow cooker and switch on.
