Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

  1. Place a small whole chicken in the crock of slow cooker.

  2. Mix sweet chili sauce, vinegar, chili powder, lemongrass herb blend in small bowl. Use a brush to coat all of the exposed chicken with the sauce.

Helpful Tip

If you wish you can use your hands and a sharp knife to remove the skin from the breast and sides before placing in the crock of the slow cooker. Nutrient analysis completed using skinless breast and leg portions of chicken. Many herbs are now available in tubes. Squeeze out the amount you need and avoid waste if you can't use them up on time.
