Had me at cream cheese. Made this with 2 chicken breasts and halved the other ingredients. Definately going to be making this more often.

Very versatile this recipe. I have added, roasted capsicum strips, an extra carmelised onion, sundried tomato, olives, capers, baby spinach or just on its own as the recipe states. Very easy and tasty.

No Mel, that isn’t an ingredient in this recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you put any chicken stock in

Absolutely delicious!!
Iโ€™ll add more mushrooms and a full capsicum next time. Might even try adding a little bacon. It doesnโ€™t need bacon for flavour at all but just to experiment.
Highly recommended this recipe.

This is so delicious! Was googling new recipes to try in my slow cooker and decided to try this! Added a bit extra of the herbs and had it on pasta, beyond tasty! Hubby is obsessed, would definitely recommend!

You can get lactose free cream cheese, a little dearer but great for this.

My family wasnโ€™t a fan unfortunately looked amazing but felt it didnโ€™t have enough flavour really

Felicity , what did you substitute for the cream cheese (lactose free) ??

My 3 year old devoured this! I left out the capsicum and added spinach. Delicious!

Is this freezable?

I was planning to have pasta with this dish, but when I tasted that sauce… it soon changed to a lazy meal of chips.
That sauce drizzled over the chips was to die for.
What a great dish

Love this recipe, very creamy and super delicious. My family thought it was great ๐Ÿ™‚ I made it in my 3.5 litre crockpot as it has a lower heat than my larger slow cooker. I will definitely make this again ๐Ÿ™‚ I used chicken breast instead and that was fine, next time I’ll try the thighs ๐Ÿ™‚

Love how easy this recipe is, combined with being able to swap the cream cheese for lactose free without problems makes this a regular ๐Ÿ™‚
