Chick Pea and Chicken Casserole (Slow Cooker)
Continuing on with the slow cooker experiment to get Oscar into bed earlier (which is working really well!) here’s another slow cooker recipe that can also be made on the stove top or in the oven. It’s nice and simple and is great with cous cous or rice.

Note: the amine levels in meat increase with longer cooking times. If amines aren't tolerated this stew can be made in a large saucepan on the stove top or in the oven in a casserole dish with a much shorter cooking time. Skip step 2 to brown the chicken and put it straight into the saucepan or casserole dish.
