Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 hours
Total Time 5 hours 10 minutes


  • 10 chicken drumsticks
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 3 washed potatoes, diced chunky
  • Trimmed bunch of dutch carrots
  • 300ml cooking cream (it's a cream that resists splitting)
  • 1 sachet of chicken gravy
  • Salt and Pepper to season


  • Place leeks and diced potato chunks on bottom of slow cooker
  • Lay chicken drumsticks over that
  • Add dutch carrots on top
  • Combine cream and gravy mix in a jug then pour over
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Cook on HIGH for 5hrs


  • To serve gently remove carrots and chicken to serving plates. Use a slotted spoon to lift out the potatoes and add them to serving plate. Give the sauce a quick whisk then ladle that over serving plates.
  • Would be lovely also served with a crusty bread roll.
  • I kept the potato chunks fairly small chunks to ensure they cooked through
  • Would also work with boneless chicken and you could add other vegetables if you wished
  • A great one pot dinner for the whole family to enjoy

  1. I made this was really nice and great comfort food. Used a whole chicken doubled the gravy mix and cream and added. Some fresh thyme. Easy dinner and yum!

  2. What gravy is this I cant find a sachet of powder gravy and how many mls, mg etc of the gravy is it also if using chicken thigh how many kg would it be?

  3. Looking forward to having this tonight as we are all sick. I used pieces of chicken potato celery as there were no leeks carrots and going to add some peas and corn later . Doubled the sauce

  4. Hi, is this recipe in any of your books? I have Slow Cooker Central books 1 and 2, but cannot find it in either.

  5. I love this recipe, it’s one of my favourites, & I occasionally do it using sausages instead of chicken.. I don’t add any potato though, I do them separately as a side ?

  6. I tried this recipe for the first time last night.
    Chicken was a little dry wonder why? Sauce was a little rich for me, but I’ll certainly make it again

  7. This simple yet tasty meal went down a treat. The only thing left on the plate were the bones! I made some slight adjustments to the dish. I added 2 cloves garlic minced & 1 chicken stock cube. I swapped the Dutch carrots for regular ones and layer them on the bottom of the slow cooker with the leaks. Instead of cooking potatoes with the dish itself, I served them on the side as mash. Another dish that I think will be making a regular appearance

  8. Yummy!! Cooked this tonight and it was a hit with the whole family including miss fussy 7 year old. I didn’t have Dutch carrots, just peeled and chopped 2 carrots and threw them in with the potatoes.

  9. I made this the other night, it was a real hit with my husband. I used 12 wings (albeit large ones) as that was all I had, otherwise I followed the recipe. We had so much I was able to make the left overs into pie filling! Will definitely be doing this again! Thanks so much Paulene <3

  10. A lovely dish. I put in spiral pasta at the end no leek but sprinkled parsley and oregano.
    I have leftovers which I can use for lunch or tomorrow night dinner.
    thank you for this recipe.
    will be making it again.

    Made this for dinner tonight, everything tender and beautifully tasty. I used cashew cream in place of cooking cream as one of us is lactose intolerance, added a heaped teaspoon of cornflower in the mix no problems with the cream spitting. Thank you Paulene for such a wonderful easy tasty recipe. yum 😋

    One of my favourite recipes. Variation – In place of cream, I used a tin of Cream of Mushroom Soup (any Creamy Soup would work) which I mixed with a splash of milk & 3 tablespoons of Maggi Rich Gravy Powder & then added to the SC. I also added 2 cloves of minced garlic. Delicious budget friendly meal.
