Slow Cooked Chicken Stew

Rated as 3.54 out of 5 Stars

"Slow cookers are so great for those times when you want a fuss-free dinner. You can literally throw everything in it and leave it all day so you have a lovely wholesome meal waiting for you at dinner time. We left this stew in the slow cooker for 8 hours on a low heat but if you want it ready bit sooner than that, you can turn the heat up to medium and it should be ready in about 4 hours."

I made it according to the directions. And yes, it is too bland.. I will make it again but will put my own “flavor” into it.. Using less quinoa is a start & the vegetable stock was huge mistake....

Found it a bit bland. Will try again with much more curry (used mild), maybe some red pepper flakes, more onion and lemon.

Great flavour. I reduced the pepper to 3/4 tsp. and still found it a bit peppery, but my husband loved it. I also added some homemade seasoned salt to give it an extra kick. Used yams instead...

This was ok but somewhat on the bland side. Also the quinoa soaked up a lot of liquid which left this too thick and dry.

Will DEFINITELY make this again!! So yummy!!! I used chicken thighs instead of breasts but other than that I followed the recipe. Delicious!
