Store Cupboard Slow Cooker Chicken..........

I know it's odd, I have goodness knows how many cookery books in my cupboards, but quite often I just like to have a rummage and throw something together.  So far so good, and if it didn't work you wouldn't hear about it ;). 
You might want to see the last couple of store cupboard recipes too?

Having raided the freezer and store cupboard this time, I came up with the following ingredients :)

A little oil
6 chicken thighs (from the farm so fairly large) skinned but on the bone
2 onions (only 1 in the pic but I changed my mind)
4 garlic cloves
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chilli flakes
Can of chick peas (been in the larder for ages, was planning own hummus)
Box of basics chopped tomatoes
150ml Chicken stock

I fried the onions and garlic in 1 cal spray (sprayed 20 times), you can use own oil!  Added the chicken and browned, I then added the rest of the ingredients, brought to the boil, then put into the slow cooker for 8 hrs on low.

The kids had 2 portions each, with jacket potatoes, we are having with leftover potatoes from yesterdays dinner.  You can have with what you fancy of course, but it was yummy - and that's coming from an anti stew person who hates wet food by the way ;)

Enjoy, and all feedback welcomed :)
