It’s been a quite a while since I last posted a recipe on here.  I did have a couple of recipes planned for over the festive period but obviously that never happened.  I will just have to keep them aside until later in the year.  No doubt it will just feel like a few months have passed before I am publishing those posts!!  This Slow Cooker Spanish Chicken is an ideal midweek meal.  Just throw all the ingredients into the slow cooker before you head out the door for the day and it’s all ready for you when you come home.  Although I have used chicken breasts for this recipe you can always swap it for chicken thighs instead.
 
 

I’ve added some black olive halves to this dish (8 olives = 1 syn) so when portioned up will make the syn value negligible if you are following a Slimming World diet.  However if you’re not following that diet knock yourself out and chuck in some chopped chorizo or even some red wine.  Or you can still do that but remember to syn them!

Possible Variations

 
 
Make it veggie:  Either replace the chicken with quorn pieces or use vegetables such as courgettes, aubergine and mushrooms.

Make it fishy:  Replace the chicken for fish such as cod or seafood like king prawns, squid or mussels.

Chopped chorizo:  Add some chopped chorizo for extra flavour.

Swap the beans:  Try adding haricot, cannellini or chickpeas instead.
