Creamy Country Chicken Casserole 5 0 5 6

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 5 hrs
  • 10 mins

    5 hrs

    5 hrs 10 mins

  • Yields: 5


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


1Place leeks and diced potato chunks on bottom of slow cooker

2Lay chicken drumsticks over that

3Add dutch carrots on top

4Combine cream and gravy mix in a jug then pour over

5Season with salt and pepper

6Cook on HIGH for 5hrs


1To 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.

2Would be lovely also served with a crusty bread roll.

3I kept the potato chunks fairly small chunks to ensure they cooked through

4Would also work with boneless chicken and you could add other vegetables if you wished

5A great one pot dinner for the whole family to enjoy

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

Yummy!! Cooked this tonight and it was a hit with the whole family including miss fussy 7 year old. I didnโ€™t have Dutch carrots, just peeled and chopped 2 carrots and threw them in with the potatoes.

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

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 Iโ€™ll certainly make it again

I love this recipe, itโ€™s one of my favourites, & I occasionally do it using sausages instead of chicken.. I donโ€™t add any potato though, I do them separately as a side ๐Ÿ˜‹

Yes it’s in book 4 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

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

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)
