    http://www.onelovelylife.com/slow-cooker-butter-chicken/

    Paleo butter chicken! I'm not paleo but this was SO good. I put everything in the crockpot with chicken and let it cook on high about 5 hours (my chicken was still frozen). Only diffs: I used coconut cream becuase that's what I had, and I couldn't get cardamom so I used an equal mix of cinnamon and nutmeg. At the end, while I put my rice in the rice cooker, I shredded the chicken, and added some frozen peas, and stirred the whole thing together to sit while the rice cooked. SO GOOD. And easy too!

    Home made crock pot yogurt

    Half of a gallon of milk
    One container whole milk plain yogurt.



    Pour milk into crock cook on low 2 hours 45 minutes, then shut of and leave standing as is 2 hours.
    After two hours are up stir in small container of whole milk plain yogurt(these are your cultures).
    Wrap in large bath towel and stick it in oven++ (see below)with light on and leave it alone for at least twelve hours.
    This is great to do over night.....

    It will have liquid on top ...this is whey and can be spooned off.
    Can add fruit or vanilla, honey, you choose....

    Don't forget to set a side about a cup for starter on next batch
    +++NOT for GAS oven!!!!!!!! We don't want towel on fire!


    Good for 7-10 days in fridge....the fresher the milk the longer it lasts...
    Also the more milk fat the thicker the yogurt...
    If you use 2 percent or lower were you can strain with cheesecloth to make thicker or add unflavored gelatin when you add cultures to thicken.

    Also made this! Made with chicken breast and shredded it at the end. Super good. Added a small dash of ghost chili sauce to the seasonings too for a bit of spice. It's so simple I'll defs make it again.

    Made this with chicken breast instead and shredded it all up over some orzo pasta. Soooo good. You don't really taste the ranch; it just give it an extra something and the whole thing is savory and delicious ❤️

    This thread is awesome. I love my crock pots (slow cookers) so much I own 4 currently and am buying another tomorrow that has 2 x 1L and 1 x 3L all with separate controls.

    I admin a slow cooker group on FB and have transitioned to gluten free and lactose free recipes over the last couple years and now adapting mine, others, and creating new ones that fit into a low cal, low sugar, low carb (or healthy carb) set.

    I will start sharing my new creations here and pick up some inspiration from the recipes already in this thread :smile:

    This is not low calorie, but it’s perfect for bringing to a holiday diner, or fixing really fast in the morning before work, and letting it cook on your desk for a few hours for a work celebration. Ppl were literally picking it off the sides of the crock pot!

    Pot Roast
    Carrots
    Potatoes
    Onion
    Celery
    Beef broth (enough to cover...depends on size of crockpot and meat cut but usually 2 cans or one box)
    Salt & pepper to taste

    Season meat cut and cook on low in a crockpot (6-8 hours).

    Combine meat, broth and chopped vegs (potatoes, carrots, onions, celery whatever you want to add if anything all in together. Keep veg sizes in bigger pieces if they are going to cook that long. You can add a couple of cans of beef broth. Just enough to cover the vegs. Additional broth will cook out of the meat too.

    Gravy :
    (if wanted):
    You can use a Brown Gravy mix (store bought package). Which calls for 1 cup of water and the mix but I use half broth (from the roast) and half water.

    OR:

    You can make your own from scratch with a water and flour mix and broth from the meat towards the end of the cooking time.

    You want your flour water mix to be thick but still able to pour. Try 2 Tablespoons of flour and 1/2 cup water (mix this together first). Put 2 cups of broth from your roast in the pan and slowly stir in the water/flour mix and bring to a boil in a pan/skillet on the stove. As it boils it thickens. If it is too thick add more broth, If it doesn't thicken, add more flour/water.

    slap in a pork or beef joint with what ever seasoning you like. leave on high for 3-4 hours and then low for further 1-2 hours. pulled pork or beef to do you a few days.
