Crockpot chicken stew



Cooked this on the day we went to Sentosa... just chopped everything up (except the chicken) and dumped them into the slow cooker and we were off to Sentosa and I didn't even need to worry about what if I don't have time to prepare dinner when we get home! :) Isn't the slow cooker a wonderful invention? lol...


Alicia's share (I shredded the chicken and cut up the mushrooms and lightly mashed up the carrots and potatoes):

You can serve the stew in this manner for the younger tots.

Crockpot chicken stew

Ingredients
  • 3 chicken thighs (deskinned, deboned, visible fats removed)
  • 5 big white button mushrooms (remove stem)
  • 1/2 large white onion
  • 3 thin sticks of leek
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 small potatoes
  • 400-500ml water or stock
  • cornflour

Seasoning (after cooking's done):
  • light soy sauce
  • ground white pepper

Marinade for chicken:
  • oyster sauce
  • Lee Kum Kee chicken marinade
  • brown sugar
  • ground black pepper
  • cornflour

Method:
  1. Marinate the chicken.
  2. Peel the carrots and potatoes then cut them into small chunks.
  3. Slice the mushrooms, leek and onion.
  4. Place the carrot and potato chunks into the slow cooker first, followed by the leek and onion then the mushroom, chicken and water/stock.
  5. Cook on low for 6hours.
  6. Remove some potato chunks, mash and return to the stew .
  7. Add in the cornflour to further thicken the stew if the stew's not thick enough.
  8. Remove toddler's share before adding seasoning.
  9. Serve hot with rice.


Alicia's response was rather lukewarm again... I think she may not like the taste of leek so the next time I shall try to remove it and add maybe tomatoes instead.. :D


For toddler's consumption:
  • Serve as shown in picture above for young tots.
  • For older tots more accustomed to larger chunks and more textures, simply cut the potato and carrot into smaller pieces and tear the chicken into bite-size pieces.
  • If your tot is fond of mushrooms as well, cut the mushrooms into small bits to prevent choking.
