Recipe: Slow Cooked Ratatouille with Chicken

Slow Cooked Ratatouille with Chicken (serves 4, approx. 487 kcal per serving)

I only discovered this recipe the other day but have fallen in love with it. As someone who isn't a massive veg fan I thought I would struggle with this but it was delightful! (The picture above doesn't do it justice I'm afraid) Its super filling but really low in calories. It freezes well, I had another portion for lunch today. As it was slow cooked it came out a little bit soupy as you need very little water when slow cooking and the ingredients seem to release their own moisture. You might chose to reduce the stock or leave it out completely if you want it a little thicker.

It was taken from a book called 'One Pot' by Igloo Books and the original recipe wasn't using a slow cooker, however the recipe here is exactly how I made it.


  • 2 chicken breasts, diced
  • 2 red onions, sliced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 aubergine, sliced
  • 2 courgettes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • 4 tomatoes, chopped


  1. Prepare the ingredients as detailed above and add them to the slow cooker. Give it a good stir to mix everything well together.
  2. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. Serve!
