Yum, a really nice taste combination to what I normally cook in the slow cooker. I found this recipe by searching ‘chicken pumpkin’. Pantry/fridge items I used
– no sundried or cherry tomato, swapped in tinned tomato & 2 Tblspn tomato paste
– no spinach
– no philly cheese swapped in 1/2 cup grated parmesan
Will make this again, it was a winner with the family

Very yummy and filling. I didn’t have the Philly and it was still pretty good, but next time I will use it. I had a carton of frozen sour cream and put it in frozen, it wasn’t a problem. We had it with both pasta and rice the next day. It is a very big dish.

Oh it’s a shame you didn’t check with us first for help … you dont’ have to throw out split things .. it’s appearance only! 🙂
Here’s all the info on what to do and how to fix it we could have given you HERE 🙂
As you can see others loved this dish, sorry we weren’t able to help you enjoy yours in time before you binned it 🙂

Terrible! The cream/sour cream split and $25 worth of ingredients went into the bin.
