  • Brown chicken pieces in frypan. (You can skip this but I add some stock to the pan after to scrape up all the bits and add to the sc)
  • Chop up onion, mushrooms and potatoes.
  • Place the chicken and potatoes in the bottom of the sc.
  • pour everything else over the top.
  • Give it a stir to mix everything through.
  • Cook on low 6 - 7 hours or until chicken is done.
  • If sauce is too runny you can add some cornflour mixed with water to thicken it about 30mins before serving.
  • I sometimes take mine out and put it in the oven to thicken.
  • Serve over cheesy polenta or pasta.
