  1. Place the bacon and onions in the slow cooker and put the chicken and butternut squash on top. (Tip: To reduce the cooking time by 1 hour, boil the chopped squash for 8 minutes in a saucepan to soften it before adding to the slow cooker along with the chicken.)
  2. Pour the boiling water into a measuring jug and add the chicken stock cube. Stir until dissolved. In a large bowl, combine the stock with the tomatoes, mustard, tomato purée, oil and dried herbs. Stir together and pour into the slow cooker.

  4. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve with some steamed broccoli and French beans and crusty bread.

Tip: Try this dish with some fresh artisan bread from the SuperValu bakery to soak up any remaining sauce.
