Hi, after some dinner ideas.
I have a whole chicken that I will cook in the slow cooker, I will cut into pieces, (too hot to use oven today)
Any recipe ideas, pantry I is stocked pretty well...

I dont do tomato and chicken but I'm sure a can or two of crushed tomatoes and a packet or two of taco seasoning would make a nice meal over mexican rice, just pull the meat off he bone.
ETA: This just popped up in the recipe bit on the side of my screen http://www.essentialkids.com.au/recipes/fa...0301-1u51c.html

whole chook cooked in white wine:
Stuffing: 1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs, 4 crushed garlic cloves, leaves of 3 rosemary sprigs (chopped fine), 1 teaspoon lemon zest.
Rinse your chookie inside and out and pat dry inside and out with good paper towel then loosely stuff your chook and tie/skewer legs together.
Put 200ml white wine and 200ml chicken stock in small saucepan and bring to boil.
Put the chook, breast side down, in the slow cooker and pour over stock/wine mix. Cook on low for 6 hours or until chook is tender and juices run clear.
Serve with steamed baby potatoes with a little butter, and some fresh steamed greens, or with a nice mesclun salad.
this chicken is juicy and very tasty but simple, and tastes awesome shredded with salad the next day.
ETA: use decent white wine so you can enjoy drinking the rest of it with your dinner!

We had the Chicken Cacciatore recipe on this page the other night and it was fantastic!
I made my own italian dressing for the recipe and also added zucchini, and carrot to the pot before adding in the chicken.
We also really like this recipe:

Do you have those purple bulb shallots?
I make a really simple chicken dish using bone in parts. It's not a slowcooker dish, but you use a wide based pan. All you do is brown the chicken, skin side down first and while that's happening peel 8 or so shallots. Then you brown the other side, remove the chicken and brown the shallots. Then out the chicken back in skin side up, cover and simmer for 45 mins or so until juices are clear. It makes a nice juicy sauce and the shallots are awesome. You can serve with whatever you want.
