  1. Made this tonight, had it on its own & it’s amazing! Vegies and meat all in one easy meal. Left out the asparagus though. Tick of approval from my fiancé, will definitely be adding to my list of favourite slow cooker meals ?

  2. This was an absolute hit in my house tonight. My partner and I loved it!! I left the asparagus out and added an extra chilli served with mash potato. Will be adding this to the regular dinner rotation.

  3. This lived up to expectations. I left out the asparagus and zucchini and substituted for a head of broccoli. I used minced garlic instead of cloves, and only had english mustard so used that. I used a kilo of bone in thighs, cooked on high for 4 hours and it shredded off the bone easily at the end. I mixed in cooked fettucine at the end and it was delish. The chilli and mushroom flavours meant it wasn’t bland like other slow cooker meals can often be.

  4. Awesome recipe
    I used it as a guide though
    No capsicum or chilli due to allergies
    I’d run out of garlic and had no fresh basil
    Veges I used onion, carrot and parsnip and added at the end peas and corn
    Herbs was thyme
    Soup was cream of chicken

    But it was delicious ?

  5. This is a regular in my house. I just use what ever veggies I have at the time and it successfully works with a whole bag of penne pasta. I also add the spinach when serving as I prefer it fresh over soggy
