With a rich tomato base and a slight hint of chilli, you’ll feel like you’re on holiday in Mexico! A great dish to put on in the morning and come home to at night, it’s an already-prepared meal to makes things quick, easy and tasty during the week.

Preparation time: 10 mins Cook time: 240 mins Serves: 4


  • 1kg chicken thighs or chicken maryland, bone in
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 can tinned tomatoes
  • 1 brown onion, chopped

Serve with any of the following:

  • avocado slices
  • grated cheese

  1. Add all ingredients to a slow cooker and mix together so they are well combined.
