My 4 years old daughter takes a lot of time to eat her food. Holding bite in her mouth and not swallowing it?

I feed her and it takes 2 to 3 hrs becuz she doesnt chew her food quickly,just holds it in her mouth for as long as she can n swallows it only when i yell or threaten her. Doctors say shes perfectly alright in every way. Theres no teething problem. Her throak is good n she doesnt have mouth ulcers. This happens all the time m extremely frustrated n hate mealtimes. She,on the other hand eats chocolates,wafers,candies by herself n very quickly. What should i do?
