Have planned to do chicken casserole type thing in slow cooker tomorrow and have:

chicken breast (obv. grin)
carrots
potatoes
onions
sweet potatoes
leeks
chicken stock
flour

Do I bung it all in at the same time or will the leeks be too soggy and need to go in a couple of hours after everything else iyswim??

Hi Simpson,

I had the same question as well, I found on another thread the website MealSavers and they have a whole section on slow cooking and the do's and do nots and they also have a free PDF with 20 exclusive recipes, a few of them are for chicken!

don;t leeks go soggy when you cook them anyway??

thought that was the essence of leeks....

genuine query, as I always find however I do them they go soggy, like onions.

i'll be keen to find out how your sweet potatoes go - i've tried this and they just turned to mush in mine. thinking i may have set it too high (wasn't a major issue, as they dissolved anyway, but interested to know).

yum yum chicken casserole

Leeks were ok though smile

And it tasted yummy grin
