Slow Cooker Chicken Stew


This is again another lazy man's dish.  Using the slow cooker can really help when you're busy with other household chores.  Just dump all the ingredients in the pot, give them a good stir, turn on the power and wait patiently.....I did mine at noon and it was smelling good after 4 hours on high heat.  I used some Korean bean paste in this stew and the chicken was so tender, even toothless senior citizens would be able to enjoy it :)

  4. Cheah, your Chicken Stew looks so delicious! I have had a bit of a disaster cooking chicken using slow cooker. The chicken was overcooked and was all mushy! I think I should not leave it for too long.

    1. Depending on whether farm chicken or free range chicken, need to monitor the cooking time.

    It has been cold cold cold lately. I know that your chicken stew will make a complete homely and warm meal with a bowl hot steamy rice.

    1. On the contrary, it's been hot, hot, super hot and hazy these days. The slow cooker really comes in handy when it's just too hot to cook in the kitchen. Just let the slow cooker do the work for you :)

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),
