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.

Easy slow cooker chicken and chickpea casserole.
- 600g skinless chicken breast fillets
- 1/2 Large leek
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
- 1 Large carrot
- 1 Medium zucchini
- 1 can chickpeas (400g, rinsed and drained)
- 200g pak choi (leaves and stem, washed)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon citric acid
- 1 pear (peeled and chopped)
- 3 Medium potatoes (peeled and chopped)
- 4 cups water
Moderate Salicylates, Low Glutamates, Low / High Amines
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.

Thank you for some slow cooker inspiration! Which brand of minced garlic do you use?
Hi Marnie, we use a couple of varieties of minced garlic. I love the fresh stuff but this is easier than washing, peeling and crushing/chopping 🙂 They all have similiar ingredients. At the moment we have “Always Fresh Garlic Finely Minced” It contains 90% garlic, water, salt, food acids 260 (acetic acid) and 330 (citric acid).
