    The best Roast Chicken you'll ever have! Take 2 apples + 1 small onion and cut in half and place in the bottom of the pot. Then put 4/5 balls of tinfoil in too. Set the chicken on top and cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8-10. It literally falls off the bone and tastes amazing :)

    crock pot chicken tacos

    1 jar of salsa, your choice (i like newman's peach salsa)
    1 can of corn, drained & rinsed
    1 can of black beans, drained & rinsed
    1 pound (or thereabouts) boneless skinless chicken breasts (can even still be frozen)

    literally dump it all in the crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours. shred with two forks and serve on tortillas or, as i like it, on a salad. YUM!

    Slow cooked beef stew

    Beef (Asda do packets of beef chunks, or buy a piece and cut it up) - 200g per person (ish)
    White onion - 1 large will do
    Potatoes (optional but super tasty) - 1 large per 2 people
    Stock (I use Knorr stock cubes but its personal preference) - 1
    Vegetables (I use mixed frozen veg, but again personal pref) - 50g per person

    Throw it all in and fill with boiling water to just above all the ingredients (might need to shake the pot to get it all to settle in). Leave it on auto (starts high and goes low, definitely the best option) or low. Best done in the morning for the evening meal.

    Before serving add gravy granules, it doesn't matter how much it simply depends how thick you want it, but 1 tbsp should be enough for two people.

    There you have it! An amazing beef stew and fairly healthy! The only bit that maybe isn't so is the potatoes but they can be swapped for sweet potato or just left out all together, it tastes amazing regardless!

    If anyone decides to try this please to inbox me and tell me what you think as this is the first recipe I've written on the community and would love to hear your feedback!

    I made a version of this taco chicken recipe today. I did: 1lb of chicken breast, 1 can of black beans, 133g of frozen corn (not sure what that is in volume), 2 tsp of Trader Joe's taco seasoning, 1 tbsp cumin, some garlic and onion powder and oregano (didn't measure, sorry), 1/4 tsp salt, a 16oz jar of picante salsa. I left the cheese out because I can't eat dairy.

    It came out very tasty, though a bit watery. Not sure what to do about that. I guess if you eat it on a large serving of rice then it doesn't matter, but I don't like to spend too many calories in rice. It's flavourful anyway, just a bit soupy.

    Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore

    Servings: 8 • Size: 1 thigh, 1/2 cup sauce, veggies • Old Points: 3 pts • Points+: 4 pts*
    Calories: 126.2 • Fat: 2.8 g • Protein: 13.9 g • Carb: 9.2 g • Fiber: 0.6 g • Sugar: 4.1 g
    Sodium: 271.6 mg (without salt)


    Ingredients:

    8 chicken thighs, with the bone, skin removed
    28 oz can crushed tomatoes (Tuttorosso my favorite!)
    1/2 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
    1/2 green bell pepper, sliced into strips
    1/2 large onion, sliced
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 bay leaf
    salt and fresh pepper to taste
    1/4 cup fresh herbs such as basil or parsley for topping
    Directions:

    Quick method: Season chicken with salt and black pepper and place in the slow cooker. Pour tomatoes over the chicken, top with onions and peppers, add oregano, bay leaf, salt and pepper, give it a quick stir and cover. Set crock pot to LOW 8 hours or HIGH 4 hours. When the timer beeps, remove lid and keep the crock pot on HIGH one hour to help it thicken.

    Better method but requires more prep: Heat a large skillet over medium-high, lightly spray with oil (I use my Misto) and brown chicken on both sides a few minutes, season with salt and pepper. Add to the slow cooker. To the skillet, spray with a little more oil and add onions and peppers. Sauté until juices release and the vegetables become golden, a few minutes.

    Add to the slow cooker. Pour tomatoes over the chicken and vegetables, add oregano, bay leaf, salt and pepper, give it a quick stir and cover. Set crock pot to LOW 8 hours or HIGH 4 hours.

    Dried beans or chickpeas, plenty of water, overnight on high. They can be used in soup, a recipe, dips, anything! For feeding a family beans are a weekly staple at our house:)

    This one!

    http://www.theironyou.com/2015/01/easy-creamy-crock-pot-chicken-tikka.html

    I made this the other day and it was pretty good, not too difficult to prepare. I found Garam Masala at Bulk Barn way cheaper than buying a jar from the supermarket, and I used coconut milk instead of cream to reduce the calories. (The chicken doesn't have to be organic, either, unless you want to pay extra!) Mine did not come out yellow like the pictures on that page, and I have no idea why his did - yes it's got turmeric in it, but not enough to cancel out the redness of the tomato sauce! Mine was, to be totally honest, a rather dull reddish brown... but it tasted good!

    I don't like too much heat so I only used the 1/2 tsp of cayenne suggested, but I could have used a little more and still been able to eat it. So if you like your food spicy, go ahead and increase that!

    It keeps in the fridge and was still tasty when we had some more 3-4 days later, and it also freezes well. :)

    Chile Verde (Mexican Stewed Pork) is one of my favorites and it is easy with lots of leftovers that freeze well. http://www.melskitchencafe.com/chili-verde-mexican-stewed-pork/
