Before you start

A slow cooker is needed to make this recipe.

Method

  1. Add the first 8 ingredients to the ceramic cooking pot, then mix well. Add the chicken and coat it well with the mixture.
  2. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on 'low' for 6-8 h, or until the chicken meat is tender enough to be "pulled" apart easily with a fork. Alternatively, cook on high for 4-5 h.
  3. Take the chicken out of the pot, shred it then put it back into the pot. Add the beans and peas. Cover, then cook 10 additional min on 'high'.
  4. Serve.
