Serving: 4
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours 50 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 55 minutes


  • 6-8 chicken thighs, diced
  • 6-8 large mushrooms, peeled/wiped clean and sliced
  • 100ml white wine (I used sauvignon blanc)
  • 6 short cut rashers of bacon, diced
  • 1 tin cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 tin whole champignons
  • 100ml sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon salt flakes
  • 4-5 grinds black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 heaped teaspoons cornflour
  • 50ml water


  • Put everything except cornflour and water into the slow cooker and mix thoroughly. Cook on high for 2.5 hours.
  • After this time, in a separate bowl mix the cornflour with enough of the water to dissolve all the cornflour. Take the lid off the slow cooker and stir the cornflour/water mix through, keeping stirring for a couple of minutes until it starts to thicken up.
  • Put the lid back on and cook for a further 20 minutes. You may wish to add some more cornflour/water mix if you prefer an even thicker texture. Serve with rice or pasta.

  1. i had a couple of drumsticks and thick with bones so it took a bit longer to cook, ..t took a bit to thicken it but overall it was delicious… will do with thighs as per recioe next time 🙂

  2. This is such a favourite at our place. Made it last night and doubled the mushrooms because we love them so much.

    It is going to taste even nicer tonight for left-overs.

    Thanks for such a delicious recipe!

  3. Added a carrot and half cup of frozen peas and a heaped teaspoon of French mustard – served with rice – was sceptical as never cooked with condensed soup but this was surprisingly delicious – thank you for the recipe Christy!

    I did not have mushroom soup so substituted Cream of chicken soup and I had a bottle of Prosecco and used that for the wine component. I also added carrots thickly sliced and at the end when thickening with cornflour slurry, a cup of frozen peas. Served it with creamy mashed potato. It was so delicious, hubby went back for 3rds!!

    Found this in one of the recipe books and thought it sounded ok……
    Certainly was a hit at ours with mashed potato’s.
    Think I would add some greens to it next time AND make sure I had some fresh bread to mop it up.
