Chicken in Creamy Herb Gravy


September 27, 2017

A super simple slow cooked chicken in a lush creamy herb gravy 🙂
This recipe is for fillets but would adapt easily to chicken pieces if you prefer

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs 30 mins
  • Yields: 5


1kg of chicken thigh fillets (or chicken cut of your choice)

1 tsp of dried rosemary

1 tsp of dried thyme

1 sachet of instant supreme/roast chicken gravy (no water added to gravy)

1/2 cup warm water

200ml cooking cream


1Place whole, raw chicken fillets into slow cooker (dice if you prefer)

2Sprinkle herbs over chicken

3Sprinkle dry gravy mix over chicken

4Add half a cup of water over the top of chicken (no mixing needed)

5Cook on low for 4hrs

6Gently remove chicken after moving it around in dish to disperse any gravy mix still on top of chicken, and set aside briefly

7Add cream to slow cooker, whisk to combine well (see notes below) then return chicken to gravy

8Cook for an additional 30 minutes to heat gravy through


1If you feel it's needed you could also add 2 tsp of cornflour in with cream to thicken gravy further but we didn't need to

2Serve with mashed potato and steamed seasonal veg for simple dinner the whole family will love

How many tablespoons of Gravox powder is in a sachet? I don’t have a sachet, I only have 2 varieties of Gravox powder in 140g tins…Roast Meat & Pepper (I normally use 2 tbs roast meat & 1 tbs pepper Gravox to make 1 cup gravy. Yum). Thankyou Pauline, for all your hard work to give us such an awesome fb group & website!

Cooking cream is a cream that resists splitting when heated. More info HERE

Made this tonight to sum it up in one word … AMAZING … Mr 5 and Miss 3 also demolished it which is a plus. I did add 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and 1/2 tsp of onion powder.

You sure can 🙂

Could you use just plain chicken gravox instead of the sachet?

Yeppity yep yep this was deeee-licious. Went back for seconds. So easy, cheap and limited ingredients. Chicken was tender and flavoursome. Enough gravy sauce to have with pasta or rice or whatever you prefer but we had it with mash. 😋

Got rave reviews from my family last night! I think this will be on the menu more often now.
