Hunters Chicken Medley with Sweet Potato

Indulge in one of our easiest, tastiest recipes with his hearty hunters chicken medley with sweet potato. Hunters chicken is an absolute classic here in the UK, served in pubs up and down the land. Typically it involves wrapping chicken breast in bacon. That can be a little bit fiddly when you’re looking to create something with minimal effort, so we’ve deconstructed the recipe for the slow cooker.

Plus dried oregano not pictured!

This recipe is so simple, that the only prep you need to do is chopping sweet potato and onion. If you pick up some diced chicken breast from the supermarket, then the rest can just be thrown straight from the packet into the slow cooker.

After the slow cooker has worked its magic, throw in some grated cheese and stir. We use a blend of cheddar and mozzarella for ultimate flavour and a satisfying cheese-pull! Finally, add a bit extra cheese on top and any garnish you want, such as extra red onion or parsley.

To serve, this dish goes well with a side of buttered crusty bread or a fresh green salad. Get ready to relish a meal that captures the essence of hearty home-cooked goodness!
