Adapted from a lamb stew recipe as I cannot eat red meat and turned into a yummy slow cooker recipe.

yarn Victoria, Australia

Serves: 4 

  • 500g chicken thighs (cubed)
  • 1 medium sweet potato (small cubes)
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1/2 cup pearl barley
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable stock
  • 400g tin diced tomatoes

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:8hours  ›  Extra time:10min  ›  Ready in:8hours30min 

  1. Brown chicken, garlic and onion in a frying pan, then add to slow cooker pot
  2. Add all other ingredients, stir, put on lid and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 2-4 hours.
  3. Serve with rice, or, add extra barley and just have it as is - so yummy! Be sure to fiddle with the amount of cumin you add to suit your tastebuds.
