Cozy up today to a delicious chicken sage and spice casserole made in the slow-cooker, I absolutely love this dish in winter as well as summer. Slow-cooking brings out the best in all the flavours used.
I also added a little secret ingredient of souk spice. If you follow my newsletter you will know that I have just started working with Melbourne-based SOUK spice, a humble brand solely focussed on bringing the best taste to the table. SOUK is a family run business, over years of careful experimentation and culmination they have combined over 18 herbs and spices all into one handy packet, it is quite hard to explain the wonderful balance of richness, zest, warmth and flavour of Souk. But I definitely feel that it should be obligatory in every pantry nationwide. It really took this dish to the next level.
My chicken, sage and souk spice slow cooked casserole took 4 hours to bring together. It really is a scrumptious dish to have with baked potatoes, quinoa, salad or just by itself. I added feta and fresh herbs on top which was truly satisfying. It is thrifty and will be a fabulous meal to freeze or to have for your lunch. Remember to add fresh herbs (parsley, coriander, basil, rocket or spinach) before you devour it, this will replace the vitamin c that is lost in the cooking of it.
Hope you enjoy it.

- Turn your slow cooker on to 150c (or high setting)
- Rub chicken in coconut oil then add spice to it.
- Add all ingredients above to slow cooking pan
- Stir well to ensure that all is mixed in, place lid back on and set time for 4hours. You can go off and do what you need to do whilst its cooking. I checked it a 3 hours and gave it a stir (but that is optional)

*The electric slow-cooker is very new to me (my mum actually bought me one this Christmas which arrived early! Its on offer at the moment, if you are looking for one) I can’t get over the simplicity of throwing in everything popping the lid on and setting the time, then you can carry on with your day. I can’t wait to give you more recipes using it, as with my currently busy schedule it has been a god-send to still eating nourishing food with minimal effort.
