Method

Just before we start I must say that the slow cooker/crock pot has got to be the perfect cooking utensil for working Woman /mothers,

Okey Dokey first thing we need to do is get out the slow cooker and turn it on. 

  • Melt the butter on the bottom of the crock pot.
    .
  • Place all your veggies on top of the melted butter and combine so they all get  a coating of butter.
    .
  • Salt and pepper your chicken thighs.

  • Add chicken into the cooker.

  • In a micro wave oven dish mix the soup, milk, cream of chicken soup and spices.

  • Heat in micro wave for 30 - 40 seconds.

  • Pour the mix over the chicken in the cooker stir to combine all the ingredients.

  • Place the lid, set heat to low and cook for 6-8 hrs.

  • Sprinkle with parsley and crumbled bacon and serve.

               Viola your have just completed a mouthwatering heart warming stew enjoy.

Plating


There are many ways of serving this great meal,below I've given you a few tried and tested ways of plating and they all go very nicely and tastily together.

  • With Basmati Rice or any rice of your choice.

  • With any pasta noodles.

  • Banting Dieters can use cauliflower rice.
  • My favorite is to serve in a large soup bowl with fresh bread rolls mmm.

  •            And of cause accompanied by a glass of your favorite wine.
