    4 hrs 30 mins

    4 hrs 50 mins

  • Yields: 4 Large Servings


3 Chicken Breasts

4 Bacon Rashers

250g Sliced Mushrooms

1 Can Condensed Mushroom Soup

250g Cream Cheese eg. Philly

1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic

2 Chicken Stock Cubes

If cooking as pie you will also need

Gravy Granules

4 Puff Pastry Sheets


1Slice bacon rashers & mushrooms

2Cut/break cream cheese into small chunks

3Place whole chicken breasts into slow cooker

4Add all remaining ingredients to cooker -crumbling the stock cubes

5Mix everything together - covering chicken breasts with the mixture

6Cook on low for approximately 4.5 hours on low - check after 3.5 hours as breasts dry out easily.

7(My slow cooker is 9.5L & cooks hotter then usual so times will vary)

Cooking as a pie instructions (optional)

1Slice mushrooms & bacon.

2Add all ingredients to low cooker - leaving chicken breasts whole.

3Cover breasts with mixture & cook on low for 4.5 hours.

4I refrigerated chicken breasts & mushroom sauce mixture over night.

5Preheat oven to 180°c

6Line a tart tray with puff pastry & cook the base until golden - put something on top to weight it down and pierce with a fork.

7Using gravy granules thicken the mushroom sauce & chicken mixture.

8Add mixture to pre-cooked pastry base.

9Slice 2 sheets of puff pastry into 2cm slices and "criss-cross" along the pie, tucking into the sides.

10Brush with milk and cook for approximately 30 mins until the top is golden & the filling is piping hot (to reheat chicken thoroughly.)


1Note: I used this mixture the previous night served over mash with veggies so made 1 pie with left overs. This amount could probably make 3 family sized pies. Mixture could be frozen for dump bags etc.

I love meals where I don’t have to chop chicken and it just falls apart when cooked. This was a hit in my family. Thank you
