Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 4 hrs 30 mins
Total Time 4 hrs 50 mins

Ingredients
 

  • 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

Instructions
 

  • Slice bacon rashers & mushrooms
  • Cut/break cream cheese into small chunks
  • Place whole chicken breasts into slow cooker
  • Add all remaining ingredients to cooker -crumbling the stock cubes
  • Mix everything together - covering chicken breasts with the mixture
  • Cook on low for approximately 4.5 hours on low - check after 3.5 hours as breasts dry out easily.
  • (My slow cooker is 9.5L & cooks hotter then usual so times will vary)

Cooking as a pie instructions (optional)

  • Slice mushrooms & bacon.
  • Add all ingredients to low cooker - leaving chicken breasts whole.
  • Cover breasts with mixture & cook on low for 4.5 hours.
  • I refrigerated chicken breasts & mushroom sauce mixture over night.
  • Preheat oven to 180°c
  • Line a tart tray with puff pastry & cook the base until golden - put something on top to weight it down and pierce with a fork.
  • Using gravy granules thicken the mushroom sauce & chicken mixture.
  • Add mixture to pre-cooked pastry base.
  • Slice 2 sheets of puff pastry into 2cm slices and "criss-cross" along the pie, tucking into the sides.
  • Brush with milk and cook for approximately 30 mins until the top is golden & the filling is piping hot (to reheat chicken thoroughly.)

Notes

  • Note: 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.

  1. 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
