    7 hrs 15 mins

  • Yields: 3 large serves


3 chicken Maryland (1 kilo weight)

100g diced bacon

1 onion finely chopped

3 teaspoons minced garlic

Sprinkling of dried thyme

1 kilo baby potatoes

350g diced mushroom

¾ cups chicken stock

300g green beans

¼ cup thickened cream


1Add garlic, mushrooms, onion and thyme to slow cooker. Add stock and potatoes. Place chicken and bacon on top, cover and cook on low for 6 hours (3 hours on high). Quickly place beans on top of the chicken and cook covered on low for 1 hour (30 minutes high). Remove meat and veg to serving dish. Add cream and stir through sauce. Check seasoning and pour over the chicken and veg and serve

Optional method with browning

1You may wish to brown chicken and bacon. If so brown chicken and bacon then place aside. Saute garlic, mushrooms and onion. Add thyme. Place this mix into slow cooker. Add 1/2 cup stock extra to frypan and boil for 3 minutes, reducing to 2 tbsp. Add to slow cooker with the stock then continue as above.


1You can use up to 6 chicken maryland pieces keeping the remainder of the recipe the same

2I add extra garlic when seasoning as I love garlic. If using fresh garlic use 3 cloves instead of 3 tsp

Great dish! I had to change the potato to sweet potato (no potatoes in the cupboard!), and replaced the cream with a couple of tblsp of full cream powdered milk, and used chicken thighs, but otherwise followed the recipe pretty closely. It was still fine after 9 hours on low.

Yes I have had a typo sorry. The 1 kilo diced bacon should read

1 kilo baby potatos

I’ve asked Anette to clarify for you 🙂

This looks delicious and I am wanting to try it out but I have a question first. Is it a printing error when it says 2 different lots of bacon -( 100 gms & 1 kilo) or is there something I’m missing.?
