  1. This is a great recipe! The whole family loved it & even better when itโ€™s everything I tend to have in the cupboard & fridge!

  2. I admit I have been meaning to try this one for ages now and am so glad I finally did ๐Ÿ™‚We all absolutely loved this recipe!! I did double the Worcestershire and ginger as suggested in the recipe and used 2 brown onions cut into strips and sauteed with 2 TBS of crushed garlic. I also par boiled the potatoes and carrots before adding them to the sc. Absolutely delicious served with French breadstick, totally deserves a 10/10 from all of us ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜ Thank you for sharing this one with us Carla ๐Ÿ˜

    We really enjoyed this but there were a few things I found tricky with the recipe so suggestions are:
    Use half the flour with the chicken then the other half with the sauce in the pan,
    Used 2.5 cups water to moisten everything,
    Gently stir to distribute halfway through,
    Used fresh mushrooms cut in half not sure what the recipe intended but was nice,
    Didn’t both with the peas but made broccoli separately to go with it,
    Didn’t need 6 hours on high I did 4 on high then 2 on low but actually 2 on high then 4 on low (or just 8 on low) would be fine.

    Thank you it was very tasty and would make again!
