Chicken Casserole

Take one whole chicken. Stick it in a slow cooker(6.5 litre one i.e. large). Chuck in celery, onions, leeks, loads of garlic, a handful of herbs, courgettes(zuchini), and a couple of green peppers. A cup full of red wine. A little sea salt and some black pepper. Cover with water and leave to cook for many hours(at least 6hrs).

You can do this in a large saucepan or a pressure cooker. You will then have to watch it! In the pressure cooker you will need to let it cook for 2hrs and you will need to top up the water. In a suacepan you will need to simmer for about 6 hours and you will have to top up with water.

This will serve 7 meals. It is cheap too.

Slow cookers and much more convenient and also energy saving, both for you and fuel.
