Now I do just LOVE the convenience of slow cooker recipes, it’s great for busy school days and hectic family life! Just throwing a handful of ingredients into a pot and coming home to a pretty delicious dinner is great. It means less time in the kitchen and more time with the kids, which when they’ve got homework to do that I need to help out with is a total winner.
Our Slow Cooker Rustic Chicken Casserole is simple to make, tasty and you can switch it up using different ingredients if you wish to.
