Chicken & Sweet Corn Risotto

500g chicken breast (cubed)
Can creamed corn
Small can corn kernals
2 cups of aborio rice
2 cups chicken stock
Packet of creamy chicken and vegies soup (made up in 1 1/2 cups of water)
Salt and Pepper to taste

(I think that was it?!)

Add it all into the slow cooker.
Cook on High/Fast (my slowcooker was on 2 setting) until chicken and rice are cooked through.
You'll need to regularly check the risotto to keep adding more water as its cooking.

It's a bit of a mish-mash but it's sooooooooo yummy!!!

Also I'm putting my mother-in-law's Swiss Steak in too as I'm taking most of the recipes from this site to try out over the next wee while - it's only fair that I give something tasty back

Swiss Steak

500g of chuck steak
1 tin of condensed tomato soup
1 large onion
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of vinegar
1 teaspoon of mustard (any type that you prefer, I use dijon)

Basically throw it all into the slow cooker (meat raw) stir around and cook on low for 6-7 hours. So yummy with rice!!
