Slow Cooked Chicken Chilli

So, I have to admit that with winter making itself comfortable, one of the last things I feel like doing when I get home in the evenings is cooking. Don't get me wrong, I love cooking. But when its cold and dark [seriously what is with 5pm darkness in winter? boo!] sometimes curling up on the couch with a good book or an episode of Masterchef is far more appealing. So I have been hunting for slow cooker recipes. Until this year, I had never cooked with a slowcooker [I know right... Crazy] so I am definitely still learning. I have found a bunch of recipes, but most of which don't fit to my style of eating, so I just try to adapt them as I go and hope for the best. So far. So good. And this chicken chilli is no different. The original recipe was full of beans and canned tomatoes and tomato paste which just wasn't going to work for me, so I improvised.  I posted it over on my instagram early last week and a couple of folks got in touch and asked for the recipe... So of course, here it is. This will definitely be being made in my house again, I actually can't wait.

What you will need:
3 Chicken thighs (no bones)
1 onion
1/2 green capsicum sliced
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup of coconut cream
1 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup of roast capsicum puree
Chilli [use desired amount for your palette]
Garlic to taste [1-2tsp]
Herbs and Spices to season [I used thyme, rosemary, oregano and paprika]
1 tbsp almond flour
Salt + Pepper

How you make it:
1. In the centre of your slow cooker add the butter.
2. Add your sliced onion and capsicum
3. Chuck in your chicken thighs. I sliced mine in half.
4. Sprinkle the almond flour over the chicken.
5. Add your stock, coconut cream and puree and garlic. Cover in herbs, spices, salt and pepper.
6. Put the lid on, turn your slow cooker to low and leave for 6-8 hours.
7. Once cooked, use a fork to separate out the chicken. Mine basically fell apart.
8. Stir and leave for 10 minutes before you serve.
9. Top with avocado and a bit of sour cream if you are feeling cheeky.
