Creamy Country Chicken Casserole
Chicken with leek, potato, carrots and a creamy sauce ... a complete meal in one pot - right from your your slow cooker! Winner winner chicken dinner 🙂
- 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

I cooked this last night for tea. It was very yum,hubby loved it.
Sounds delicious! Is the sachet of chicken gravy in liquid or the powder form?
Where do get cooking cream from never heard of it before , would it be in fridge section?
I use Bulla brand that is is the cold fridges with regular cream
Carnation also make a long life one on the shelves
And Philadelphia make a chillled tub one also
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!
Making this atm. Looks like cream has split…i used bulla cooking cteam to..mhelp
What to do if your cream is split
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?
Use any sachet of your favourite chicken gravy
The all usually make up to 1 cup of gravy (but in this cased use it dry no water added)
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
Hi, is this recipe in any of your books? I have Slow Cooker Central books 1 and 2, but cannot find it in either.
Yes it’s in book 4 🙂
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 😋
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
Which cut of chicken did you use Berny? Some are more dry than others. However I’d suggest your cooker needs a little less time if that was your result. Try taking an hour or so off next time 🙂
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
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.
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
Can you make this with chicken breast?
Yes you could – I just find it more dry
