Oh just wow!!!!!.. This would have to be well up there with my favourite SC recipes. The only thing I did that the recipe didn’t include was stir some baby spinach through at the end. This is a definite keeper!!!!


January 28, 2022

Absolutely one of the staples in our place! I use spinach leaves instead of shallots. I serve with pasta and get at least 10 adult serves.

This is absolutely delicious and a real crowd pleaser! If my family could have licked their bowls clean they would have! 😂

February 15, 2021

This is such a yummy and easy dinner!
Even my fuss pot 2 year old loved hers
I added a can of the soup as others have commented, I also added an extra block of Philly cream and an extra table spoon of garlic. Also added a little salt and black pepper and served with penne pasta .
I used cubed chicken breasts instead of thighs
Definitely recommend giving this one a go it’s so tasty !
I’ll defiantly make this again


January 10, 2021

I make this all the time. So yummy and it freezes well too.

This is a family fav! I make it regularly.

I also use the tin of chicken and corn soup as suggested by others and add finely chopped zucchini.

It’s also delicious on a baked potato for a change.

Such a lovely recipe. We all loved it 😋
I added the musrooms in the last hour and some spinach in the last 15 minutes but other than that I followed the recipe.
I severed with penne pasta, will definitely be making it again. This was a family thumbs up recipe 👍

This is so so beautiful!! I have a family of 6 with 4 men, my 12 year old daughter and myself.. couldn’t believe it fed us all with leftovers! It was so delicious.

As another person suggested….I too used a Coles packet of French Onion Soup & also added 298g tin of Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup…..I used 1.5kg of cubed chicken breast pieces & also 250g of smoked bacon pieces…….This is my fave dish…so far.
Thanks to the original poster & also others who made suggestions.

Cooked this last night and it was a hit with the entire family. I swapped the packet soup for a can of chicken and corn soup and used zucchini instead of capsicum. Served it with fettuccine. The kids tell me this is now on our weekly dinner list. 😁

I used chicken breast, instead of thighs, Coles brand cream cheese and I didn’t use the packet soup, I used a tin of condensed cream of chicken & corn soup. I wanted more sauce. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and served it on fettuccine. It turned out amazing! A huge hit. This recipe is so yum!

Made this tonight. Lovely flavour and easy to prepare. I did brown the chicken, onion and bacon beforehand just to remove some of the fat. I did, however, reduce the quantities of the capsicum, bacon and spring onions as it seemed a lot. Left out the mushrooms as we don’t like them. Whole family enjoyed this 10/10. Thanks for a great recipe.

One word for this dish…..YUM!! There was very little complaints in our house when I served this up. Thanks to the person who posted this.

Made a couple of changes used a can of cream of chicken instead of the packet of soup and put in a packet of French onion soup mix instead is the onion powder. Was really great, everyone loved it. I thought it had a really strong cheese flavour. Next time I would only put in half the block of Philly cheese, but for anyone who really likes cheese I would suggest to use the whole block. Will be making this again


May 17, 2016

Do u have to brown it first or will it cook on high in 3 hours?


May 17, 2016

Would u get better results by cooking on low or would this dry chicken out?


April 25, 2016

Cooked as per recipe, but found to be bland. Maybe a different flavour soup would have been better.


April 17, 2016

Cooked this last night it was to die for will be a weekly recipe to cook but did add a tin of cremy chicken soup, and added cooked pasta to it when ready was ready i 2 hours on high


March 27, 2016

Loved Loved Loved this. Only problem is there is no leftovers. Will be a regular meal in our house now.☺

Great dish and so simple to make. I found that the dish was dry as the block of Philly didn’t as such melt & go creamy and it didn’t match the pic shown so I added a little water and it turned out great. Next time I’ll make the soup mix with water instead of putting it in dry and see what happens. But otherwise a winner winner chicken dinner in my eyes!!!!


February 6, 2016

I use the acutal can of cream of chicken and corn soup, the sauce oozes over everything its devine. Big big hit in my household they want it every night lol

Michelle Garratt

We thoroughly enjoyed this dish !!
I added more mushrooms
2 packets of the soup
Used light philli
30 mins before finish stirred in a tub of cooking cream , as it wasn’t very saucy.
And some baby spinach
I also used sliced chicken breasts

I will Def be making this again x
Only me and my husband at home now and I was able to put the extra into containers in the freezer for future meal enjoyment !


January 23, 2016

Favourite recipe yet! Loved it, I modified a little;
Used light Philly,
Replaces mushroom and capsicum with grated carrot and zucchini,
Didn’t have onion powder so used French onion soup mix packet
And used smoked bacon to pack extra punch
One of my most favourite dishes ever, was a hit in my house

My kids loved it. More so because apparently they couldn’t taste the vegies. 🙂 huge hit in our house.


January 22, 2016

Such an easy recipe and so tasty!
I used bachelors cup o soup (chicken and leek). I didn’t use a tea towel as I was a bit worried it would need the moisture, I really didn’t need to worry. I removed the lid for 30 minutes at the end just to thicken the sauce but other than that it was 3 hours on high. Now I’ve read I can reduce the syns for Slimming I will do it again with Philly light 🙂

January 20, 2016

I made last night. It was soooo nice. All family loved it. I will definitely make again.


January 18, 2016

I love it! I didn’t use a tea towel was on low for 4 hours & used Hot Laksa sachet and twice the garlic xxx

going to give this a try using coconut cream and a splash of wine as I am dairy intolerant. will be a fun experiment (the wine always helps)


January 10, 2016

Made this tonight, it was awesome. I didn’t add the mushrooms as we don’t like mushrooms. Added a small amount of chilli and Italian herbs and black pepper. My son says I can cook it again anytime.

My family loved this dish and want me to make it again. I didn’t use a tea towel and it came out fine. I didn’t chicken and corn soup mix but used a packet of creamy chicken instead and a packet of onion soup.

The original recipe submitter here did not use a tea towel
The lady who posted about her experience with it on the group did use a tea towel.
I personally only use the tea towel for such things as cakes and baking etc.
However we have a blog on other ways you can thicken your dish instead of using the tea towel.
How do I thicken my slow cooker dish?


January 8, 2016

In the Facebook post it said to put a tea towel under the lid. This recipes doesn’t?

How do I know when to out a tea towel under or not?


January 6, 2016

For anyone on Slimming World this can be adapted to be only 20 syns by using Philadelphia Light and swapping the soup mix for a syn Free mug shot or chicken stock pot


January 6, 2016

I made this tonight – modified it for my young children (no vege). Was a huge hit! So full of flavour! Will definitely cook this again!


January 6, 2016

Easy to make! Family loved it! So tasty! Will be a favourite in our house. Thank u for sharing!


January 6, 2016

Can I cook this slower on low? How long for?


January 5, 2016

Do I have too make up the soup packet?

The original recipe this was based on didn’t use it so you could just leave it out or use some regular chicken soup 🙂


January 4, 2016

what if you cant get the Chinese chicken and corn soup
