Hi, we have a new slow cooker as our gas cooker broke! When making a chicken casserole, do you have to brown the chicken first ? Thanks

Most recipes tell you to brown the meat first but it isn't essential, I've done both and they were equally lovely
I've made many slow-cooked chicken casseroles without browning the meat first.

Anyway, Heston Blumenthal has looked at the science behind cooking meats and concluded that 'browning' or 'sealing' meats is always a completely pointless exercise.

However, it can be a good idea to "sweat" vegetables first - particularly onions, or you can be left with a distinct "raw onion" taste to your finished dish.
