We all know I can’t cook. I use packets. I follow recipes. I have to read recipes over and over. I refuse to cook unless there a fewer ingredients than I have fingers. The kitchen ends up covered in flour, even though the recipe doesn’t call for it. Things end up burnt, alight, or liquified.
But slow cooking I love. It’s like it was meant for me. Most recipes call for the same things – chopped tomatoes, stock/wine, your choice or veg/met, and tomato paste – with a tweek here or there.
I posted this one yesterday as part of the photo a day challange I take part in.
STUFF THAT GOES IN:
1.8 (ish) kg chicken pieces (I sometimes use thigh cut into quarters)
1 onion, 1 red capsicum, 1 green capsicum cut into 2cm pieces (be precise now!)
2 garlic cloves chopped
200g of chorizo sausage (I often use bacon instead) sliced
150 ml (ish) white wine
1/4 cup (ish) tomato paste
1/2 cup (ish) black pitted olives
zest of half a lemon chopped or 1/4 preserved lemon chopped
handful of chopped basil and parsley
WHAT TO DO:
Put everything except the parsely and basil in the slow cooker. Stir. Cook on low for 8 hrs or until tender and cooked through.
Stir in basil. Serve with rice or pasta (your choice) with a sprinkle of the parsely.
