Slow Cooker Hunters Chicken

Hunters Chicken is one of those dishes loved by most people and is especially family friendly. Making it in the slow cooker ensures the meat is juicy and tender and the barbecue sauce permeates the meat adding a great flavour. For extra smokiness use smoked or sweet cure bacon.

This recipe is quick to assemble, you just have to have the patience to wait for it to cook! I used BBQue sauce as featured in my Degustabox food box for March.



Ingredients

4 chicken breasts
4 medium potatoes
Approx 200 ml of barbecue sauce - I used BBQue
4 slices of cheddar cheese
4 slices of back bacon, fat removed


This recipe is quick to assemble, the hardest thing is waiting for it to cook!

Method

Peel and slice the potatoes.
Layer slices in the slow cooker.
Wrap the bacon around the chicken.
Place on top of the potatoes.
Pour the barbecue sauce on top.
Cook for 8 hours on low, 6 hours on medium or 4 hours on fast.
Remove the chicken and place on a microwavable plate.
Add a slice of cheese to the top of each chicken breast.
Microwave on high for 2 minutes or until cheese has melted.

Serve with broccoli and carrots or your favourite vegetables.

  2. This makes me feel inspired to pull out the slow cooker! As an expat I'm always scared that pluggin my electronics in might make them explode... but a good recipe might make it worth the chance ;)
