Simple Spiced Chicken Slow Cooker

This is about as simple as a slow cooker meal gets.


You may not win master chef with this but I promise you that you will get the whole family feed and this is just one step away from homemade baby food too.

It's one of my go-tos especially on busy days - a healthy meal does not have to be complicated or involve 20 different ingredients!

You can read more about why slow cookers are mum's best friend in my previous blog here,

In the meantime just throw everything below in and turn it on :)


750g chicken drumsticks

1 onion, sliced in rings

6 button mushrooms, sliced

1 Large kumara, chopped

4 carrots, chopped

3 potatoes, chopped

2 tinns of diced tomatoes

2 tb of pre-crushed garlic

Moroccan seasoning (or spices of your choice)

Basmati rice (to serve)

Note: Serves about four - just increase or double for a larger family


1. Prepare all the vegetables. Place in chicken at the bottom of the slow cooker.

2. Place in all vegetables. Top with tinned tomatoes, garlic and a generous amount of seasoning.

3. Mix up a bit with a wooden spoon. Cook for about 6 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

4. When you get home just put the rice in a ricecooker (will take about 15mins I get this out next to the slowcooker so it's all ready to go).

5. Serve and enjoy!
