Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 3 hours on high, then overnight on warm.
Serves: 4

You’ll need:
2 pounds turkey breast (chicken will do as well)
4 pounds mini potatoes (I’ve used yellow and red mix)
1 large white onion (diced)
2 tablespoons olive oil
lime juice (from about half lime)
spices on your choice (I’ve used lemon chicken herb mix)
1 cup of water

What to do:
Wash and cut mini potatoes in half, set aside. Slice the turkey into cubes and mix with spices and lime juice, cover with plastic wrap and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the pan on medium, add olive oil and fry onion until golden, set aside.
Now comes the fun part. Fill your slow cooker with potato/turkey mix. First lay half out of all potatoes, then layer of turkey, cover with other half of potatoes and finally top it off with onion (keep the olive oil left in pan as it’s only oil we’ll use here) and pour water on top. I’ve placed setting on high.
In about 3 hours mix everything in pot and leave overnight on warm setting.
See the only effort you have to do here is fry the onion, your slow cooker will take care of the rest.

Tip: of course it’s the easiest recipe, what I’ve also tried is adding carrots (mini carrots will be the best, but I love normal ones too), black pepper (in seeds – gives more aroma), bay leaf (throw it away once stew cooked) and top it with fresh cut parsley when serving.
