In this post I share my recipe for a slow cooked Asian style chicken. This is a delicious yet simple recipe for a slow-cooked family meal.
I love roast chicken and Freddie seems to love it too! It reminds me of my childhood when we had a roast dinner all together on a Sunday. When we were first living in New Zealand I used to serve up a roast chicken pretty regularly. After a wee while my husband admitted that it was his least favourite roast. So given that he isn’t such a fan so if I’m going to serve up roast chicken it has to be packed with full of flavour and perfectly cooked. No pressure then!
This recipe is an Asian inspired take on the good old roast chicken and because it is cooked in the slow cooker the flavours permeate the flesh. Creating an aromatic, juicy dish. It is also great cold in sandwiches the following day.
Another reason why I like this version is that the accompaniments are healthier. You can serve this with steamed or stir fried vegetables and rice, we’ve all been enjoying brown rice recently with it’s nutty flavour and firmer texture. Not only is it tastier than white rice but because it hasn’t been refined it is higher in vitamins, minerals and fibre making it an ideal food for babies and toddlers.
