Can you recommend a good Slow Cooker?
At the moment I am loving the Morphy Richards Sear and Stew 3.5 Litre Oval Slow Cooker Titanium The colour is stunning and I am loving the fact you can use the pan of the slow cooker to sear your meat. Less mess and washing up!
If you don’t have or want a slow cooker that’s absolutely fine.. I have a lovely non slow cooker version of Chicken fajitas for you to try.
