Okay by now you might have figured out, that I totally love our slow cooker!
I seriously don’t know how I managed before having one, especially now that we upgraded from the 1,5 liter slow cooker to the big 6,5 liter slow cooker. I know it was a big jump and we could have taken the 3,5 liter first, but I grew up with the motto “Think big or go home” so I went straight for the 6,5 liter slow cooker. 😂
Don’t think that I regret this, quite the opposite is true. I love my slow cooker. Whenever I cook with it I can usually freeze 2-4 portions and it’s saving so much time for me!
So the other day I had my aunt and uncle coming over from Germany to stay with us for a few days, as the builders just finished their repair work, there was a lot to clean and tidy up again. Which is where the slow cooker comes in handy again, as I don’t need to check on it every five minutes. I even sometimes forget that the slow cooker is on until I can smell the food. 😍
As my family was arriving in the evening I wanted to have a quick dinner ready for us, without standing in the kitchen for 30 minutes or more first.
This is what I did:
You just need 1 red onion (sliced), 5 potatoes (I use red potatoes as I like the taste and texture of them the most) ,7 carrots, 3-4 chicken breasts and two cups of chicken or vegetable broth. This time I used vegetable broth, but it’s really up to you and your taste buts. 😉
Place the vegetables on the bottom and put the chicken breasts on top of it. Pour over the broth of your choice and let it sit on low for 6-7 hours, make sure that the chicken is completely done before serving!
