I’m a BIG fan of using my slow cooker. I love the ease of loading it up in the morning, leaving it cooking for the day and then serving up a delicious and cheap meal. Easy slow cooker recipes, UK ones, are my absolute favourite. Anything that takes 10 minutes or less to prepare and then cooks all day is great for me!

Recently my husband has been suffering from the flu and this is his first illness in years that has seen him take sick leave from work. I have been trying to make lots of homely meals and keep him fed and watered. Yesterday I decided to make this slow cooker roast chicken.

Getting up in the morning and planning dinner is a part of our normal family routine now. It is SO convenient to place a dish in the slow cooker and let it do its thing. Sometimes we don’t have time in the morning so I’ve been testing a range of quicker slow cooker dinners, that only take 2-3 hours. This slow cooker chicken and prawn paella is one such dish. It is ready in around 2.5 hours and tastes almost as good as a paella that has been slaved over for hours!

We love a nice home cooked dinner, particularly one made in the slow cooker. The flavours have more time to develop and the meat is always soft, tender and delicious. A slow cooker is a really convenient way to have family meals ready and waiting to be served. Most dishes cook in 3-4 hours on high and 6-8 hours on low. There are lots of delicious meals that can withstand longer cooker times, such as slow cooker beef chilli, and this means you can set it before you begin work for the day. I personally don’t leave my slow cooker unattended usually but I work from home so it’s all good! Here is my recipe for slow cooker hunters chicken. I’ve tested it a few times, in a few ways, and this is my favourite way of cooking it.

When the colder nights draw in there is nothing I love more than coming home to a delicious slow cooker dinner. Being able to set my slow cooker in the morning, in just minutes, makes me feel productive and organised for the day ahead. Coming home, from work or play, to a hot dinner makes for a more relaxing day. It takes just 5-10 minutes to get this in your slow cooker pot – even less if you skip the browning steps.
