- 1 carrot, chopped
- 400g/14oz tinned chopped tomatoes

- 125g/4oz skinless chicken breast, chopped
- 100g/3 ½oz basmati rice
- 500ml/2 cups chicken stock/broth
- Salt & pepper to taste

- Preheat the slow cooker while you prepare the ingredients.
- Gently sauté the onion, garlic & celery in a little low cal oil for a few minutes until the onions soften. Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker. Combine well, cover and leave to cook on high for 1½-2 hours or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender.
