Had this tonight!
I am a bit of a slow cook novice and this is the first recipe Iโ€™ve cooked whilst at work all day.
I added a chopped onion and healthy teaspoon of garlic paste ( as I donโ€™t have onion or garlic powder )
I omitted the cream ( until I got home).
Upon getting home, I added a bulk lot of sliced mushroom, after cooked through, I added about half a cup of cream.
Served with green beans.

Christine I have never used evaporated milk before but if it is something you regularly use instead of cream it should be fine.
If you are concerned about the cream splitting Paulene’s blog is full of helpful tips >>

Could I use light and creamy evaporated milk instead of cream?

Denise I would probably use 1 onion and and as much garlic as your family likes (my daughter would probably add a good tblspn of minced garlic/3 cloves)

I loved this recipe. I used chunks of chicken breast not thighs. I had to add extra gravy powder. I served it with garlic mash potato. I was a big serving so next time if we have left overs i wil be making pies with it to put in freezee for when the kids are hungry.

Is the gravy powder chicken gravy powder or just your stock standard gravy mix?

LOVED this so much! I used 1kg of chicken breast instead as thatโ€™s my preferred cut of chicken, and it was beautiful the chicken just pulled apart! My cream also split a bit but managed to save it by taking the chicken out, and put a teaspoon of cornflour in it and whisked it and it came together again.. did that 5 minutes before serving! Highly recommend this!

This was absolutely delish! We love everything saucy. We usually alter some recipes to our own taste, but this recipe is perfect the way it is ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Delicious. Added half a packet of salt reduced french onion soup instead of onion powder and omitted the cream (300ml double cream). Put cream in 15 mins before serving with some cornflower to thicken. Used a 175gr packet of shortcut bacon and added thyme. Increased water to about a cup and a half of water. Served on a bed of sweet potato/potato mash. Broccoli, cauliflower and carrots on the side. Lots of tasty, creamy gravy, heaps of flavour. A definite winner!

Tried this with chicken sausages. I used 300ML of double/cooking cream as I didn’t want the rest of the carton to go to waste. I also used extra gravy power. It was so nice! I love creamy sauces. Was definitely a nice take on just gravy. Will be making it again very soon!
