Chicken and Fennel one pot meal in the Pyrex Slow Cooker Casserole

Chicken and Fennel one pot meal in the Pyrex Slow Cooker Casserole
Servings: 4 servings
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time1 hr 30 mins
Total Time1 hr 40 mins


  • Chicken Thigh and drumsticks – 8 pieces
  • New potatoes cut into chunks – as many as you see fit
  • 2 bulbs of fennel quartered
  • Rosemary sprigs – as much as you like
  • A lemon cut into quarters
  • Olive oil 1-2 tbsp
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 180C. Heat the oil in the slow cooker over a medium heat. These pans suit all hob surfaces, but beware of your ceramic and halogen hobs. Don’t drag the pan or it will scratch.
  • Add the chicken and cook until lightly brown.
  • Add all the other ingredients. Season well, and then give the mixture a good stirring before popping in the preheated oven.
  • Cook for 45 minutes, remove from the oven and stir again. You will discover that the natural juices from the chicken and lemon have created a sauce for you (the casseroles are self basting with a clever texture under the lid which collects condensation which then drips back into the food being coked).
  • On the odd occasion I have my father helping me in the kitchen, I find myself telling him that these types of dishes don’t need additional liquid no matter how much he protests that I need to add some. Though if you really wanted to, you could pop in a small glass of dry white wine when adding the rest of the ingredients.
  • Pop the casserole back in the oven for a further 35-45 minutes to ensure that the chicken is cooked through.
