Chicken, Low Carb
August 13, 2018
Chicken drumsticks in a creamy sun dried tomato and spinach sauce that will have you licking your plate clean! Low carb friendly too :)
5 hrs 20 mins
2kg chicken drumsticks (12)
1 tsp cracked black pepper
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
300ml cooking cream
1T minced garlic
150g semi dried tomatoes
60g baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup grated fresh Parmesan
1Add chicken drumsticks into slow cooker
2Sprinkle with the pepper, onion powder and paprika
3Use a stick blender or other processor to blend together the cooking cream, garlic, cornflour and semi dried tomatoes until all blended then pour over chicken
4Cover with tea towel trick and cook on Auto for 4hrs or Low for 5-6hrs
5Remove chicken from cooker gently into a bowl or tray, using a plastic whisk give the sauce a good stir, add spinach and cheese and stir again :)
6Return chicken to slow cooker and coat well with sauce and cook for an additional 30mins low
1You could reduce the number of chicken drumsticks to 1kg but keep the rest the same
2Be sure to use cooking cream if possible as it doesn't split when heated for long periods
3I served mine on a creamy mash and our recipe for Sweet Chilli Butter Broccoli as a side veg
4Low Carb friendly
5Cooked in my 7L Breville Searing slow cooker (reviewed on our SC review page)

This recipe is absolutely delicious. I love using the chicken nibbles. So tasty and tender chicken. Hubby loves it so it must be good 🙂

Yum! I used chicken breast, and only cooked on low 4 hours. Added some frozen vege, and served on rice. Family enjoyed it – will do again

Delicious! I absolutely love a creamy recipe, love spinach and love sun-dried! It’s licking the bowl material!

Made this tonight with four large chicken breasts instead, and added in sliced onion as someone had suggested. Brilliant.
Cooked for 4.5hrs on low, then did the extra half hour with the spinach and cheese.
All plates licked clean!

I mixed the cream & sundried Tom. , cornflour etc but turned out like paste so can this still be used & will it melt down with the rest once cooking on heat?

Tried this the other day & what an awesome meal! Different to what I normally cook, so it’s awesome to have some different flavours. Will definitely be adding drumsticks into our regular rotation! 🙂

This is an absolute winner ! I used thighs instead of drumsticks and added an extra sprinkle of parmasen on our meals ! Delicious!

Wasn’t a fan. My two teenagers didn’t eat it either. They both took one bit of a drumstick and didn’t eat anymore. I think whenever cooking cream is involved, the recipe doesn’t suit our taste as a family. It’s too rich.

This was so yummy I used thigh instead of drumsticks. Next time I would add onion in it.
It Was a Very easy recipe, hubby and all 3 kids loved it we had it with mash and veggies

Really enjoyed it. I added extra baby spinach and some tomatoes.

Absolutely loved this. Seared off 2 onions with some garlic, ginger and s&p before adding everything else.
Definitely making again

I tried this recipe. It turned out delicious. I cooked it for a total of 6 hours. Chicken was falling off the bone. I served it with mashed potato and steamed vegies.

I did find this a little flavourless, so ended up pulling the chicken apart and tossing through pasta with some extra ingredients. Kids loved it.
July 15, 2019
Very scrumptious and full of flavour.
I did sear the chicken legs in my searing slow cooker. Also pulled meat off the bone before adding back to bowl (mainly because I overcooked it 😂)
Most definitely having again!

We had this for dinner last night and didn’t like it at all. It lacked flavour and was very unpleasant.
June 9, 2019
I’ve not tried that to be sure. Let me know how it goes if you do 🙂

Could Could ricotta be used instead of cooking cream?
We tried it last night but weren’t fans. The chicken didn’t have much flavor.
May 18, 2019
I have done this with chicken thighs….marvelous!!!
May 14, 2019
I’ve just blended in ther thermomix the cooking cream, semi dried tomatoes, garlic and cornflour. It’s come out like paste consistency, was this correct ??? Not sure if it was meant to be more runny

Tea Towel Trick explained here
May 4, 2019
Why do you cover with tea towel
May 3, 2019
What’s the tea towel trick?
We had this last night too, I cooked risoni and ended up mixing it through. Yum
I will definitely be cooking this again.

Instead of using drumsticks, I used 4 chicken breasts and just shredded them. And put it on a base of mash.
Whilst I enjoyed it very much, I think next time I would rather try putting it on some pasta or rice.

Captial T is tablespoon
Small t is teaspoon
What amount is 1T of minced garlic and cornflour? Is it tablespoon? The recipe sounds delicious.
January 16, 2019
OMG, I just discovered Sweet Chilli Butter broccoli from reading your recipe …want to try both!!

Cooking cream is one that resists splitting when heated. More info HERE
January 7, 2019
Hi, what’s cooking cream? Can you use Philiadephia? Would like normal single cream curdle?
January 3, 2019
Terminally affect no haha Just dull a little 🙂
December 27, 2018
Hi Paulene, if i swapped the semi dried tomatoes for a tin of diced tomatoes, would i terminally effect texture or flavour?
December 26, 2018
Ive cooked this on multiple occasions using thighs and drumsticks always doubling the recipe and it turns out perfect every time
November 26, 2018
I haven’t tried but I think you could if you prefer 🙂 Just add a tsp or two of cornflour to it first to help prevent splitting
November 24, 2018
Coconut cream or milk, instead of dairy milk, would that work?
November 14, 2018
I’m thinking it may not?
November 12, 2018
Would the cooking cream handle been frozen and reheated? Making freezer meals
September 24, 2018
Delicious will be making this again I did use sun dried tomatoes but just a few grands less
September 19, 2018
Really yummy, I used skinless thighs instead of drumsticks. I think I’ll add it into the rotation 😀
September 3, 2018
Yes that’s still a cooking cream 🙂

Would Philadelphia cream for cooking do the job? My local supermarket doesn’t have any other kind of cooking cream. Thanks in advance
