Well I made chilli in the slow cooker tonight. No recipe, just started it off in a pan, then winged it in the slow cooker for the rest of the afternoon!

I do a lot of stews - beef with veg and stock.

Curry in the slow cooker - usually chicken, spices, tomatoes, sweet potato, then add chickpeas towards the end and spinach

throw in some chicken breast and pour in some salsa. super easy but also yummy

Chili of course is a good one. for mine I use ground beef but you can use chicken too. tomato sauce, kidney and black beans, onion, green pepper, oregano, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, you can add cayenne if you like spicy.

White chicken chili. Chicken, chicken stock, pinto beans, onion, green pepper, a bit of cream cheese, a little milk, oregano, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, paprika and cumin.

Chicken and White bean chili! YUM. I love it slow cooked is best, really brings out the flavors. I always add buttermilk biscuits and use them to dip into the chili.

My fav recipe is:

1 box of stuffing ( I use cornbread stuffing)
1lb of chicken breast with skin (turkey works as well) or chicken thighs
2 cups water

Spray pot with non-stick spray, pour in stuffing. Place chicken on top and pour water in. Season chicken breast with salt and pepper. Cook on low for 6 hours.
