2 Tbsp dried peas (or half a cup of frozen peas)

1.5 cups of butternut pumpkin, cut in small cubes

Corn kernels cut from 1 large fresh corn cob

1kg skinless chicken thigh fillet, diced

1 x 420g can of condensed cream of chicken soup (no water added)

1 x cup of soup sachet of spring vegetable soup (dry)

60g butter

½ cup grated parmesan cheese

½ cup milk


1Combine all casserole ingredients in slow cooker and cook on low for 4hrs

2To make dumplings, combine the flour, mustard, and herbs in a large bowl. Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub in until crumbly. Stir in the parmesan, then make a well in centre. Add milk and use a knife to combine until mixture starts to clump together.

3Gently gather dough together and make golf ball sized dumpling balls (I made 14 ) . Gently drop them on top of casserole, spaced apart, as they will expand.

4Cover with tea towel trick and continue to cook on low for another 45-60mins or until dumplings are cooked.

5Serve with steamed green veg on the side

My husband and I really liked it. Mr 15 ate it, but wasn’t a massive fan of the dumplings. Mr 9 & 10 didn’t want the dumplings but enjoyed the casserole part. I would probably cook it again, but leave the dumplings off the kids plates (more for us!).
