Slow cooker chicken stew (Slimming World friendly)

This has got to be the easiest recipe to make and it's also a good one for clearing out your veg drawer in the fridge. You simply put everything in the slow cooker, turn it on and when you get in from work it's ready to eat. The amounts I have given make loads it served six of us last night but you can make as much or as little as you like.

 Increase more of the veg you like or don't use meat at all and make it vegetarian. It''s also a good one to prep the veg and chicken the night before and just put it all in the slow cooker in the morning. Simple and delicious.

NOTE: I have a HUGE Swan slow cooker please halve this recipe if you only have a smaller slow cooker Xx


Slow cooker chicken stew


8 chicken thighs (skinned, boned and trimmed of fat) cut into large chunks
4 large carrots (peeled and chopped)
1 large onion (chopped)
4 sticks of celery (peeled and chopped)
2 large leeks ( sliced)
1 bag (2kg) new potatoes (cut into 4 or 6 pieces)
1 pint chicken stock (from a cube is fine)
2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt


Put everything in the slow cooker, Mix well and cook on low for 6-8 hours but it can happily stay there a bit longer if you need it to.
