Chicken breasts
Loads of onions
Masala sauce (from a recipe an indian friend gave me)

Cook for about 4-6 hours.

Makes the flavours amazing.

You could probably do it with a ready made sauce eg tub or jar.

I will dig out my recipe if you want it btu not today - am signing off now as waaaay too busy!

Are you supposed to fry everything first, before putting it all into the slow cooker? Someone on another thread said she doesn't brown anything first (except mince) but all the recipes I have read said you do need to.

I think you need to soften the onions first - otherwise the dish tastes bitter and you have hard bits of onion.

ratatouille (sp?) with a pot roast joint of beef on top


did a lovely sausage and bean casserole this week

mostly either do

meat with red wine/root veg (precooked a bit), onions, garlic, rosemary

meat with peppers/onions/garlic/tinned tomatoes/spices

I did stuffed chicken breasts in there that were lovely.

weegiemum, please tell! How do you make risotto in a slow cooker and does it taste the same as stirring it (I don't think oven baked risotto is anything like real risotto).

That chorizo and pork belly recipe looks amazing.

Have you seen the tip of the day? grin

I would brown all meat first as its stays pink and doesnt look appealing especially sausages and pork.

I generally use the electric oven now as it has a timer. I liked the slow cooker but found it could be quite watery.
