  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs
  • 10 mins

    4 hrs

    4 hrs 10 mins

  • Yields: 4


4-6 chicken thigh (leave whole)

1 cup spinach

6x sundried tomatoes sliced or cherry tomatoes work well

1x tsp garlic

300ml of cream

1 cup chicken stock

1 jar of basil pesto (recommend barilla)

Parmesan about 1/4 of a cup

Salt and pepper


1Place all Ingredients (apart from spinach) into slow cooker and cook on high for 3-4 hours add the spinach about 30 minutes before serving just to soften it.

2If cream splits add 1tbs or cornflour to 1-2 Tbs or water mix and pour into slow cookers and it should fix that problem. Alternatively you can add the cream when you add your spinach.

3Serve with pasta cooked as per packet directions and a good sprinkle of Parmesan

4I almost used a full packet of penne this made enough for 4 people

Family Favourite my 8 yo loves this one. I left out the sun dried tomatoes/ tomatoes and we used the red pesto .. was so full of flavour. We had leftovers for work lunches the next day and it was even better.

This was utterly amazing! Definitely going to become a regular in our house from now on when we are in a hurry… We used Gluten free pasta, which didn’t make any difference to taste, it was still delicious!
