2kg chicken drumsticks (12)

1 tsp cracked black pepper

1 tsp onion powder

2 tsp smoked paprika

300ml cooking cream

1T cornflour

150g semi dried tomatoes

60g baby spinach leaves

3Use a stick blender or other processor to blend together the cooking cream, garlic, cornflour and semi dried tomatoes until all blended then pour over chicken

4Cover with tea towel trick and cook on Auto for 4hrs or Low for 5-6hrs

5Remove chicken from cooker gently into a bowl or tray, using a plastic whisk give the sauce a good stir, add spinach and cheese and stir again πŸ™‚

1You could reduce the number of chicken drumsticks to 1kg but keep the rest the same

2Be sure to use cooking cream if possible as it doesn't split when heated for long periods

3I served mine on a creamy mash and our recipe for Sweet Chilli Butter Broccoli as a side veg

I haven’t tried but I think you could if you prefer πŸ™‚ Just add a tsp or two of cornflour to it first to help prevent splitting

Coconut cream or milk, instead of dairy milk, would that work?

Really yummy, I used skinless thighs instead of drumsticks. I think I’ll add it into the rotation πŸ˜€

Would Philadelphia cream for cooking do the job? My local supermarket doesn’t have any other kind of cooking cream. Thanks in advance
