“This recipe I got from an South Africa friend it is and Afrikaans recipe that is cooked in the oven I have adapated it for the crockpot. This recipe is excellent, use chicken breasts, thighs or drumsticks or all three The chicken is cooked after 2 hours on high level setting but not soft, potatoes and carrots take longer to cook, after 2 hours set the crockpot to autoshift until the potatoes and carrots are cooked this will take another 3 hours, the chicken will also be soft and succulent.. When the crockpot is left on high level setting the chicken will and vegetable will be soft and ready to serve in 3 and ½ hours. When this chicken dish is needed in a hurry after the 2 hour period set the crockpot to high level setting, parboil the potatoes and carrots in the microwave for 15minutes on high level then add to the chicken in the crockpot set on high level and leave for another 40 minutes.
