How to make:

  1.  Place bacon in the slow cooker. Arrange chicken and potatoes on top.
  2. In a measuring jug add chicken stock with hot water, stir until dissolved.
  3. In a large bowl combine mustard, tomatoes, paste, herbs, stock, coconut oil, stir together and spoon over chicken.
  4. Cover and cook according to times above.
  5. 1 hour before cooking has finished add carrots and if you’d like your sauce to thicken, add xanthan gum and stir.
  6. 6 minutes before serving, wash and steam green beans.
  7. Spoon out casserole onto serving plate with beans, serve hot.

To reduce cooking time by an hour for either a slow cooker or a crockpot, boil chopped sweet potatoes for 8 minutes in a saucepan to soften, before adding to slow cooker with chicken as in step one.

Swap 450g chicken for 420g beef casserole meat.
