Delicious! So easy! I didn’t have mushrooms and forgot the sour cream and it was still amazing. We had it on rice. The sunbeam secret chef slow cooker runs very hot and our chicken was done in 4 hours on low. I think it would be awesome with some diced veggies as a pie filling too!

How was it J 🙂

had a bit of a google and found McCormicks makes Bush Spice Seasoning if that is any help

Cooked this today as per recipe but minus bush spices (what are they!?). I didn’t measure the chilli so came out a little too hot for the younger kids, even with the addition of sour cream, but the teenager and I enjoyed it. I shredded the chicken into big chunks before serving on white rice. Nice dish for this cold weather!

Cooking creamy French chicken right now has anyone put anything different in there recipies

Sorry, what I meant is cook it on high once it had defrosted. I didn’t see your reply for some reason, so came up with another dinner idea. Will retry another time.

Not if it’s frozen?
Never cook from frozen

I forgot to take chicken out of the freezer last night. Would I be able to do this on HIGH for 3-4 hours?

Cooked this for the 1st time tonight n really enjoyed it even though I left out a few ingredients as I didn’t have them, I used mixed spice instead of bush spices (I have neva heard of this spice b4 lol ) , I also didn’t have any chilli powder n I put half tbsp minced garlic in as I had no garlic cloves!!! Once the chicken was cooked, I shredded it n mixed rice n peas through!!! It was delicious!!! Will definitely make this again 🙂 thanku for sharing your lovely recipe with us Sharon 😉

Sensational! This is the 3rd time I have made it (tonight). Not runny at all. I use thigh instead of breast. Serve with mash or rice.

Sorry but we really didn’t enjoy this. It was way too runny & didn’t have a lot of flavour.

how do you avoid the chicken to dry up? do you just put more water | chicken stock?

I’ve been eating this for 3 days now mixing penne paster in at the end and let warm for another 20 mins makes it even better this s**t is the bomb

Just use a mixed spice/herbs that you enjoy or leave it out entirely 🙂

Really yummy! I used thighs instead of breasts and left out the chilli powder and bush spices but the flavours were still outstanding. Will definitely be making this again.


April 22, 2016

Oh excellent, glad you gave it the thumbs up Sheps! Think I’ll try the thought next time too :). With chilli lol. ??

This is a really tasty meal! I pretty much stuck to the recipe but used thighs instead of breasts and omitted the chilli powder. I also threw in some vegies toward the end to have a sensational one pot meal! Will definitely make this one again. Thanks for the awesome recipe Sharon.
