Stupid question but do u put the chicken in raw or cooked

Made this but added grated zucchini, spring onion instead of shallots, extra mushrooms, extra chicken and extra capsicum. Added 3 cups of chicken stock to balance this. Instead of Italian herbs added garlic granules, basil and parsley. Was yummy as. Will definitely make again!

Does this freeze well?
I really want to cook this but my husband doesn’t like rice so I don’t want to have to eat it for an entire week 🤔😬

On low as it states in recipe already 🙂

Is this 3 hours on low or high

I made this last weekend and omg it is amazing, I did find that at the end of the suggested cooking time it needed some more cooking and a bit extra liquid but oh so yummy will definitely be making this again.

I made this today followed recipe exactly
Rice is still crunchy and all liquad absorbed. I think maybe the liquad should be more than 2 cups

I used onion as I didn’t have any shallots and I added a bit of garlic. Cooked perfectly, loved it! Got six large portions out of it, so it’s a great budget-friendly easy-cook meal that seems a bit fancy 🙂

Loved this dish. I added extra mushroom and bacon as we love that in our meals and forgot to add the parmesan cheese. But this tasted so delicious and will be cooking again.

This was so easy, I cooked it for 3 hours the last hour was on high as it was doing nothing (ancient slow cooker)and stirred once. It cooked perfectly.
I used low salt stock…. which may be the issue as I found it a little bland. Still would make again but would play with recipe a bit to suit my tastes. Definitely worked out better then my oven baked recipe.

Looks delicious! Does it matter if you’re not home to stir it every hour? Sorry I’m still new to slow cooking… 🙂
