Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 4 hrs
Total Time 4 hrs 20 mins

Ingredients
 

  • 2 chicken thigh fillets, diced
  • 150g chunky cut mushrooms
  • 200ml cooking cream
  • 1Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • In a small non stick frypan cook mushrooms with butter and 1/2 tsp of salt for approx 10mins
  • Add cooked mushroom (with any pan juices) and diced chicken to slow cooker
  • Pour over cream and 1tsp cracked black pepper
  • I use cooking cream specifically as it resists splitting during cooking
  • Cook on low for 4hrs using The Tea Towel Trick in the last hour to thicken sauce a little
  • If you are not a follower of low carb eating you could replace this tea towel step with instead adding a tbsp of cornflour with a little water in the last 15mins of cooking time to thicken instead.
  • Serve with a scattering of Parmesan cheese
  • Side options include seasonal veg or konjac pasta/regular pasta depending on your dietary needs
