Devilishly Delicious Slow Cooker Chicken

Having started with a recipe for biscuits, we decided a savoury offering would be a good way to finish off the week. So, as we all had a busy day in prospect, a slow cooker recipe was chosen. It's called Devilled Chicken and is a long-standing family recipe which has been used for over 20 years... we still have the original recipe card (given by a family friend)... and here it is:- Having measured out all the ingredients (using gluten free Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce) into a Pyrex dish, my sous chef combined them and the chicken joints (that had been skinned) were added, covered in the sauce and left to marinade for about an hour. (As we had 6 chicken leg joints, we doubled the above amounts)

Next, the chicken pieces were browned on all sides and, after about ten minutes, the remainder of the marinade was added to the pan and brought up to simmer. After this, the slow cooker (ours is a very basic 3.5l one from Argos) was filled with the chicken and its sauce, covered and left to cook, on high for about 5 hours.... ... and when we were ready to eat, after the sous chef had approved the cooking process and resultant aroma, this is what was served up... The verdict was that it was 10/10 and, after his taste test, this was the sous chef's plate! Give it a go and see what you think!

This dish was made with Gluten Free ingredients... and can also be cooked, in a casserole, in the oven at 350ºF/180ºC for about an hour. We prefer the slow cooker method as the meat just falls of the bones and it's a great stand by for after a busy day and can be served with rice (or jacket potatoes if you oven cook).
