Use regular mustard – like you’d put on a hotdog

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 🙏

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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!

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 😊

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!

Eager to try this. What type of mustard did you use ??

It’s cream
You can also get the Bulla brand cooking cream
It resists splitting over heat

Wanting to try this…is it Philadelphia cream or cream cheese I’m supposed to use?

Absolutely love this recipe! Even my partner likes it and hes not a chicken fan. Have made this few times and making again tonight! Yummmy

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 😁

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.

Lovely. Would recommend using a salt reduced soup. I also added garlic, chives and smoked paprika.
