Slow cooker chicken from Brandi in Canada

  • What's the recipe? Grannie Annie's chicken
  • Who sent it? Brandi in Canada
  • Where did the recipe come from? Her grandmother
  • Why is it special? "Grannie Annie's chicken - a childhood favourite. Grannie Annie was born in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada in 1896. Moved to Stewarttown, Ontario, Canada, at the age of 13 to be a housekeeper at her brother's farm. It was in this kitchen that I likely had her chicken for the first time... She died at 84 years of age in 1980. I was only four.

    "I moved to Peterborough, Ontario, in 1993, from Stewarttown, Ontario. It wasn't until I sat down to write this letter to share her recipe that it dawned on me that I followed her path in life in some way to her birthplace in Peterborough. Funny that - I spent eight years in Peterborough not fully understanding the connection-draw that led me there.

    "I hope you enjoy the recipe of hers my family adopted for the slow cooker. Think of her - Grannie Annie - when you make it, share it with your family."
