    The real test will the the creamy chicken. Dd1 has decided she is going to be fussy and not eat chicken either.

    Plus I have a new slow cooker that cooks really fast. My old one cooked ultra slow so I'm relearning cooking times as well

    Is it the Kambrook? I went from 30+ year old crock pot to the Kambrook and boy was there a difference. Safe to say I burned a few things at first!

    Glad the meal was a hit! Always a good thing! Fingers crossed for the creamy garlic chicken tomorrow. I know my DS demolished it!

    No Russell Hobbs 6l sear and cook one.

    Cooks potatoes amazingly. My old kenwood one always left them hard and with a funny taste even after 8 hours on high and the warm function on that one never seemed to get warm enough. This one is quite hot still on warm.


    Eta: so glad that photo turned out OK and no reflections considering it has a slight hazy reflection being stainless. I'm walking around in an oversized top only. Oops

    My old crock pot was doing the same. Not getting hot enough. The Kambrook cooks nicely but has no keep warm function so I may be adding something similar to yours to my sc collection soon!!

    Lucky for brushed finishes!! Hehe could have been a tad embarrassing!

    I have the creamy garlic chicken in. Im beginning to think this slow cooker is playing games with me. I put it on and set it for 2 hours on low thinking since it cooks fast that should be OK. Nope. Still raw. Turned it on high now for another hour.

    If you wanted to read any further just go to the site and search creamy garlic chicken and this should be the first recipe to pop up.

    This is the one. It's cooked now. It's OK. Not a huge wow omg but I left the mushrooms out because I can't stand them. I'm guessing it is something that would do fantastically with them if you like mushrooms. I would do it again though and add more garlic and probably some broccoli towards the end. It would be great to use as a base to customize. Definitely not a bad dish. I would compare it to a cheesy leek and potato soup in flavour.

    I had to leave early today so asked ďd2 to put the chicken and a few onions and a kilo or so of potatoes in the slow cooker for me. I reminded her to take of the meat juice pad etc.

    I get this text.
    How do you cut up onions. I am crying. My eyez Burn like the winchechester's mum

    I don't know who that is but they must have hurt.
    She had cut the top of one onion. :/ the poor thing wiped her eye after cutting it. So we ended up with one onion and no potatoes.
    Oh well she tried and dinner was still yummy.
