Sweet Chilli Chicken


Now that the days are getting shorter and the weather colder I have pulled out my favourite appliance - the slow cooker!! For a girl who isn't that fond of cooking (I only cook cos I like to eat!) this is the best invention ever. Yesterday I worked an extra day so before I went in the morning I prepared (only takes a minute) dinner for last night.



I love coming home from work and opening the door and I can smell my dinner cooking. It gives me time for a quick visit to blogland before dinner needs to be served.




This is my Sweet Chilli Chicken (actually not mine, I got it out of a recipe book but I feel it's mine because I have shared it sooo much with friends and family).



You can't get any easier than this........


SWEET CHILLI CHICKEN

8 chicken legs - roll these in flour and place in slow cooker.

Add 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of tomato sauce
2 tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce
2 tablespoons of apricot jam

Put the lid on and cook for 6-7 hours on low.
Stir occasionally.
(I sometimes thicken mine a bit with cornflour and water if it's too juicy but it needs quite a bit of juice to soak into the rice.)
Serve on a bed of rice.

DELICIOUS
Once you have made this it will become a family favourite.

This looks great! Many times in the summer I stick my crockpot out in the garage for all-day cooking. My house stays nice & cool :)

Blessings!
