Healthy Slow Cooker Tips to use with this recipe
Before you start to think about recipes with your slow cooker here are a few tips which may help.
If you find your meal is a bit watery take the lid off the slow cooker and turn it up high for half an hour this can help evaporate some of the water.
Using Slow cooker liners can save washing up if you are making something that often sticks.
Remember that nothing evaporates so you may need less liquid than in other recipes eg on the hob. This is worth remembering if you are converting a recipe to make it in the slow cooker.
Get the best size slow cooker for your family there are lots of great ones on Amazon with many under £30 for a good brand and good size!
Using frozen chicken for this recipe
Chicken for this or any other chicken recipes should never be cooked from frozen, there are so many issues with this that risk food poisoning.
If you have just realised you only have frozen chicken there I have lots of tips to safely defrost chicken check them out in my defrosting chicken guide.
Making this recipe on a budget
I try to ensure all of the recipes I make are accessible to everyone. By this, I mean that they do not use obscure hard-to-find ingredients.
This Spanish chicken recipe is no exception. Chicken thigh fillets are generally cheaper than chicken breast fillets.
Buying herbs and spices in bulk is something I really recommend. It can save a lot of money in the long term but also mean you never run out! I find putting them on Amazon subscribe and save helps too!
Shopping around to see which shops have offers on your usual products can make a big difference to your weekly shopping bill. Additionally don’t forget to check out the yellow sticker reductions and freeze what you can.
Frozen vegetables are nutritionally just as good as fresh usually so do keep an eye for those too to save money. Frozen peppers can make this a little runnier but will still be nice.
Do you have any particular frozen vegetables you love? Do share them with me it is always nice to hear people’s recommendations.
