  1. The flavours are out of this world intense. Hubby & I did love it, but I think it’s a bit too strong. I can’t pinpoint exactly what I need to change but am thinking I might leave out the condensed soup next time. It’s absolutely beautiful though & definitely a must try!! Only thing I changed was I used 1 onion instead of 1 leek. I cooked on high for 5 hours & it was falling apart.

  2. Yummy except I would not put in the stock cube next time as it made the dish too salty. I added fresh flat leaf parsley and plenty of pepper and served with fettucine 😁

  3. I didn’t have chicken and corn soup so did cream of chicken plus a can of creamed corn and left out the mushrooms as not a fan. Was amazing! Will be making this again for sure!

  4. Absolutely delicious but dish ended up being very salty, will maybe reduce the amount of french onion soup mix and maybe the stock cube next time! Thanks for sharing 😊

  5. Loved It!!!! I had to tweek the recipe a little, I omitted the onion and stock cube, and as others have suggested use low salt or salt reduced soup and soup mix, and I only had thigh fillets, but this recipe is a definite winner in our house!

  6. This turned out beautiful, it was sooooo tasty!!! I also added diced carrots n added frozen peas n microwaveable rice in the last hr, ohhhh n I also added a sprinkle of onion salt in place of leek, delicious!!! Will def make again!!! Thank you for sharing your tasty recipe with us Sharon 🙂

    We had this for dinner last night with Sweet potato/cauliflower mash and veges. I substituted the cooking cream for Zymil cream and it worked out beautifully. Delicious. Thank you!

  8. This is incredible in pies! The only change to the recipe is I cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. We had enough for a meal for 3 adults (with mash and veggies) and 16 small pies with the leftovers.

  9. Has anyone froze left overs of this dish and did it taste ok when defrosted? Just wonder because the cream in it…

  10. Absolutely delicious.
    The flavours are moreish and the chicken just falls apart
    Will definitely become a new family favourite

  11. We do this meal often as the whole family enjoy it! I only had breasts and condensed cream of chicken this time. I cooked mine for 3 1/2 hours as I diced the breasts and my slow cooker cooks at a high heat even on low. Breasts were tender and cooked through. It is one recipe my family consistently asks to have.

  12. Very creamy and full of deliciousness. I added 1 teaspoon dried thyme.,& handful each grated carrot and frozen peas just to bulk up the veges.
    Great winner with my hubby. This is a regular favourite recipe in our home thanks 🙏

  13. What mustard is used please and thank you in advance…..I know a few people have asked but couldn’t see any reply
