Chicken is so versatile and in times when we have to make the most of what we have this works so well. The slow cooker is fantastic and makes it so easy. You must flavour these dishes as to your own taste. I don't add salt until the end to give all the rest of the flavours a chance to mingle! The gristle and skin go into animal feed for my dogs and cats; all that is thrown away is the bones!!!
As i don't eat the skin, i kept the bones skin etc and made a stock. Once drained and separated, i added most of the vegetables (carrot,potato,onion,celery,rosemary,thymefrom the garden) and blended after cooked, thickened with cornflour a little and then added the reserved,chunckier pieces of veg afterwards, seasoned and a away you go. - 03 Feb 2018
