Recipes do not come much simpler than this, which is perfect for this busy time of year. You just throw everything in to your cooker and leave it to cook. This is the ideal meal to cook if you are having people over, as everyone just helps themselves, which leaves you to sit back and enjoy yourself. The added bonus is it is low in calories and low in fat too.

If we are having friends over for dinner and I don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen before they arrive, this is my go to meal. Just a few little extra things, like guacamole, before they arrive and you have yourself a Mexican feast.
This meal is low in calories, low in fat and high in flavour. You can adapt it to make it as spicy or as mild as you want too. If you are having people over, I would say make it on the mild side and then just put some extra spicy salsa and hot sauce out one the table for people to add extra heat if they want to. Oh, do I have some amazing new Mexican recipes to share with you all in the new year!
I have a new gadget in my kitchen – the REDMOND Multicooker. It doesn’t exaggerate when it says it is a multicooker, as it really does do everything: soups, stews, oats, cakes, steams, yoghurt, pasta, fondue, bread.
You might be thinking, do you really need another gadget in your kitchen? But this REDMOND Multicooker will save you having to have everything else, as it combines them all. Although I think everyone could make use of this, I think it would especially appeal to people that are short on kitchen space, like students. I know I wish I had this when I was living in student halls many years ago.
It’s not just for people with small kitchens though, much like a slow cooker it is a massive time saver. You just put everything in and it does it all for you, which is why I am sharing this recipe now. In the run up to Christmas, as I find myself in a frenzy of Christmas lights, food shopping and trying not to get tangled up in celotape when wrapping presents, this has come in so handy.
One of the things I really like about it is how surprisingly small it is. When I read about everything it did, I thought it would be huge, but it isn’t at all. It also makes hardly any noise, unlike some cookers I have had in the past. It is also fairly light as well, making it easy to move if you need to. My slow cooker is sometimes a 2 person job to get it back in the cupboard, so this is an improvement on that. Oh, and it’s easy to clean! You may have seen from previous reviews I have done of other products, that is important to me.
It has 34 preset programs and also a booklet of 100 recipes to get you started. The recipe book is very precise, in that if you start changing the amount of ingredients in the recipes, it won’t cook the same. So either follow the recipes, or go the trial and error route, which is what I did. Luckily this salsa chicken turned out perfectly first time. Really moist and full of flavour. There is also a REDMOND App with lots more recipes.
Don’t be put off by the settings. It might look a little intimidating at first, but it’s actually really easy to use. That is coming from me, a technophobe at the best of times.
This recipe can also be made in a slow cooker (cooked on low for 4 hours) but I can’t recommend the REDMOND Multicooker enough. Such a versatile kitchen gadget.
How to make this 2 Ingredient Salsa Chicken – Serves 4:
2 Ingredient Salsa Chicken
- 600 g chicken breasts
- 400 g restaurant style salsa
- Place the chicken and salsa into the REDMOND bowl and mix well. Close the lid and select stew. Set the time for 50 minutes and cook until the program finishes.
