Slow cooked chicken surprise

Slow Cooked Chicken Surprise


1 whole chicken
2 large fresh chillies
2 onions
1 garlic clove
2 tbsps BBQ sauce
400ml chicken stock cube
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp paprika

Optional extras:
Carrots, Sweet potatoes, Peppers

1 tbsp cornflour
1 tbsp oil


  1. Halve the onions, place 1 half into the middle of the chicken and slice the other halves.
  2. Chop finely the garlic and chillies.
  3. Place the onion, garlic and half of the chillies into the bottom of the slow cooker, with any chopped optional vegetables.
  4. Smear the butter over the chicken and put the chicken on top of the vegetables and onions in the slow cooker.
  5. Sprinkle the rest of the chillies and half of the paprika over the chicken skin.
  6. Mix together the chicken stock, Worcestershire sauce, rest of the paprika, BBQ sauce and pour over the chicken.
  7. Leave in the slow cooker on high for the first hour and then on low for another 5-6 hours.
  8. Remove the chicken and allow it to rest for 5 mins before carving and serving.
  9. To make a gravy with the left over juices, mix the cornflour and oil together to form a dough in the bottom of a small pan.
  10. Add some of the juices and whisk with the cornflour & oil mix whilst gently heating over a low heat, after a few mins it will start to thicken, so gradually add more of the juices slowly continuously stirring.
Serve with rice or potatoes and a selection of seasonal vegetables.

NB If there are any leftover gravy after the meal you can add it to couscous over a pan to make some beautifully flavoured couscous!
