Slow Cooked Taiwanese Chicken and Rice

As the weather gets cooler, it’s great to start using your slow cooker (or a low oven) more often to prepare the family meals.

This is an amazing chicken dish with slightly spicy Taiwanese inspired flavours.

This recipe freezes well so as it serves 4 it can be portioned out and frozen to reheat for another meal if you don’t get through it all with the family.
