Always lightly oil the Hot Pot before use this helps with cleaning and preservation of the Hot Pot.

  1. Put the Chicken, Citrus juices, chilli powder, paprika, and red pepper into the slow cooker turn on low.
  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy sided frying pan medium high heat, Add the onion and chilli and fry for a few minutes until aromatic (dont let the onion burn it loses its sweetness.) Add this to the slow cooker – hot pot. Cover on low for 6-8 hrs, high for 4-5.
  3. Serve on a bed of rice and squeeze the fresh lime and lemon juice on it to your taste.

I serve this on a bed of rice with a squeeze of the lime and lemon juice a hint of mint would go nicely with this too so rip up some fresh mint and add that to your dish.
