Still got root veg to use up, so today’s delight is a Chicken casserole, chopped swede, parsnips, carrot, onion and leek with diced skinless, bones chicken thighs which I found at the bottom of the freezer drawer, with a bit of freezer burn as the bag had split – not that that makes a difference in a casserole 😄
I put it all in the slow cooker with a pack of casserole mix from Aldi at 29p it would cost more to buy the herbs etc
switched on low at 6:30 am when I leave for work, ready to eat at 6 when Hubby is home and sorted – some home grown runner beans from our neighbors and some home made frozen Yorkshire puddings – yum…..
My slow cooker was a wedding gift from my first marriage over 25 years ago, It is fab and has outlasted more of the modern versions, it cooks better too, I think it’s cooks at a lower temperature.
I cut up the Chicken Thighs into quarters and stir in to the root veg and add some chopped and frozen Leeks, from the current Super 6 at Aldi, I added 350 ml of water to the packet mix and add to slow cooker, switch it on and leave it – the packet mix advises 450 ml water, but as the slow cooker doesn’t evaporate, I put in less.
How simple and delicious is that 😍
