Slow Cooker Chicken stew

A great winter warmer and so easy too, the slow cooker really is a busy mum's friend!  Excuse the photo, still steaming!!

Ingredients (serves 4)
Approx 1lb diced chicken                                                                                                                          1/2 pint water
1 diced onion
2 sticks celery, sliced
2 large carrots sliced
1/4 small swede, diced
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
2 tablespoons tomato puree
3/4 pint chicken stock                                                                                                

4fl oz water
2tbsps cornflour/flour
Frozen peas

Pop all top 11 ingredients into slow cooker (veg at the bottom), and cook on high for 4 hours.  Mix water and cornflour thoroughly then add to pot along with peas and cook for a further 30 minutes.

You can add any vegetables according to choice.  I usually serve some green steamed vegetables on the side as think these only need a quick cook, but root vegetables work really well :-)
