Only bought my slow cooker yesterday...this is the first recipe I tried!! Well pleased...followed the recipe (mostly) slightly less quantities as my cooker is only 3.3l...oh and I used what i had - so halved baby potatoes, carrots cut into thickish sticks. Set it on high for the 6 hours...cooked perfectly! Didn't bother adding peas (I didn't have any!) the flavour was fab...even my husband had seconds and he's not a cooked carrot or potato fan! This will be a regular I think!

I tried this recipe earlier this week and it is very nice, but a few comments and pointers:

For UK followers -cornstarch is known as cornflour; heavy or whipping cream - use double cream or Elmlea.

1. I agree with the longer cooking times at higher temperatures mentioned in previous posts; for my version I put the cooker on High for 4 hours and then on Medium for 4 hours, this seemed to work well as everything was cooked.

2. Go heavy on the seasonings. Having followed the seasoning guidelines mentioned in the recipe, I would double or triple the quantities if you prefer to taste your garlic/pepper etc, if not, leave them be.

3. The peas are not superfluous; I used a tin of petit pois and you don't need half the can.

4. There is no need to transfer the poultry and vegetables to a separate warm serving platter whilst adding peas and cream to the liquid. I simply poured my cream into the cooker and stirred it in well; I then put the cooker back on high to make sure everything was piping hot before serving.

Otherwise a great recipe - gonna try Carrot and Coriander Soup next - I'll post the recipe!

And well done on a very useful and easy to use website.

Careful with the settings, I found that 5.5 hours on low followed by 2.5 hours on High left the potatoes distinctly under done. Suggest that 8 hours on low doesnt really work, so go for the 6 hours on high and then let it keep warm if you need the longer time, rather than cooking it on low. Otherwise, I used boned chicken thighs with the fat trimmed off and they worked really well. Note that quantities wise, I used less than half the ingredients suggested and it was enough for 3 with some left over. Regarding flavourings, given that I used half the ingredients, I used 3 times the suggested garlic and dried thyme, plus I sprinked a generous handful of fresh thyme on the finished product and it was not over flavoured - so be generous there. Otherwise this is a really easy tasty dish, though I did nuke the peas first for a few minutes prior to putting them in the sauce. My own personal feeling is that the peas are better left separate and I would also suggest you chop the onions very finely, I didnt go far enough in that respect.
