Slow Cooker Comforts: Hunter’s Chicken

I love Hunter’s Chicken. My BBQ sauce is pretty amazing (I have it on the best authority, obviously!) and while I did give a guideline above I can’t say any of my sauces are ever the same. We prefer ours on the hotter side of BBQ, as opposed to the sweeter side – so you may want to add an extra teaspoon of sugar to the sauce if you like the sweeter side of things. I usually put this in the slow cooker in the morning with the pieces of chicken (we don’t eat bacon) and leave it simmering most of the day so when we do get around to eating it the chicken simply falls apart.

– 1 large red onion
– Half a teaspoon of red chilli powder
– 1 (or 2) cans of chopped tomatoes
– 2 tablespoons of tomato puree
– A drizzle of balsamic vinegar
– A drizzle of Lea & Perrins
– 1 clove of diced garlic
– 1 bay leaf
– 2 teaspoons of sugar*
Season to taste

I did spend a lot of time deliberating over one or two cans of chopped tomatoes – we always use two but generally have a slow cooker full of smoky barbeque goodness. The chicken absorbs all the sauce, and simply flakes when you pull it with your fork – I leave it as whole breast pieces but this could easily be adjusted into a pulled chicken dish – ideal for a family gathering!
