Recipe

  1. Remember to defrost your meat! Defrost in the fridge and use within 24 hours, or in a microwave on ‘defrost’ directly before use.

    This recipe works perfectly with frozen meat. Check what you have in your freezer and defrost meat thoroughly before cooking. If using defrosted cooked meat, you can only reheat this meat once so only cook what you can eat.
  2. Coat the chicken lightly in flour, heat the oil in a fry pan, and fry the chicken and garlic in the pan until slightly browned on all sides but not cooked through.

  3. Slice your lemons and onions and place all ingredients into the slow cooker.

  4. Dissolve your stock cube in 600ml of warm water and pour on top.

  5. Cook on low for 5 hours.

  6. Serve with fresh coriander and couscous.
