Slow Cooked Chicken and Potatoes

Sorry for the silence. Things has not been so bright since yesterday morning, we lost a colleague quite suddenly on Sunday night but thank goodness it was rather a peaceful one. It's not easy with this one as he has 3 young kids as well, just like ST Tee. Got me into thinking mode again...

Anyway, I have this in my draft folder. Enjoy yah.

Since the discovery to slow cook food without water... it's getting easier to have some of my meals prepared. One of the better ones done in a slow cooker is this Slow Cooked Chicken and Potatoes.

Easy peasy but in order to get a more fragrant taste, I pre-fried sliced onions with garlic, soy bean paste and fermented black bean together in oil. Then dump in chicken chunks and brown them. Arrange potatoes at the bottom of the slow cooker. Placed the chicken concoction on top. Cover and cook for about 3-4 hours.

The outcome was fantastic especially so after pre-frying the aromatics!

i am a malaysian living in the United States. I bought a slow cooker a while ago and rarely use it. I am dying to find chinese/asian/malaysian recipe for slow cooker. I am not a big fan of the typical American slow cooker recipes

Your chicken potatoes and pork ribs dishes are something i will definitely try.

Hope to see more recipes like that on your blog in the future. Or perhaps you can direct me to websites where i can find such recipes.

thanks kenny. basically this dish tasted quite similar with ayam pongteh, cooking method slighly different

cumi&ciki, this one quite easy peasy, everything just agak-agak :D

deming, am sorry that i do not know where else you can find similar recipes using your slow cooker. actually all you need is some creativity and experiment with the various vegetables and meats. the basic principle is place the vege at the bottom and the meat on top.

this kinda dish is great for weekends and dun even need to watch over it ;-) yozora

no problem mike
