  1. Absolutely lovely, full of flavour, chicken dried out a little as i diced the meat will only cook for four hours instead of six next time

  2. I cooked this 2nite n was quite impressed with how it tasted, was lovely!!! I shredded the chicken n it soaked up all the sauce, very tasty!!! I served it with steamed vegies 😛
    Will definitely cook this again 🙂

  3. Oh wow! This was fantastic. I placed a tea towel under the lid through half of the cooking to keep the sauce thick. Hubby and son said to cook this again. Definitely will!

  4. Made this last night. Had to thicken the sauce a lot but it was very yum! Will be having leftovers tonight for tea too! I served with creamy mash and steamed veggies. I also added a teaspoon of chilli flakes as I like chilli ? Will make again for sure!

  5. Didn’t have bacon or cream of chicken soup however I used 2 creamy chicken n corn Cuppa soup sachets with 1/2 cup of cream and 1 cup of boiling water and threw in some mixed vegies with roughly a tspn of corrianda and a tspn of cumin and 1 n 1/2 heaped tspn of basil with the honey, garlic and mustard. Its the first slow cooker dish I’ve made and definitely left me with a great impression even though I
    improvised a couple of ingredients.

  6. Made this tonight and it was amazing! Clean plates all around a request for it to be a regular meal! Thanks Pauline

  7. Wow oh wow! This is amazing! I added some green beans while thickening sauce with the lid off and served with rice. My partner said while eating that he is buying a freezer so next time I can make triple this and save some! Plates were licked clean and my older kids all sat watching the baby eat and waiting to eat any of her leftovers! This will be a regular here, my 10 year old said she would be happy having this every night.

  8. A regular dish at our house, have tried it with cream of mushroom soup and different types of mustard, always turns out beautifully

  9. Wow this was a fantastic dish, sauce quite thin so I used some cornflour to thicken it.
    My husband loved it and so did I . This recipe is a keeper, one to pass on to the rest of the family. Thank you
    what a fabulous meal..ohh I served mine with mashed potato and steamed carrots.

  10. Amazing! One of my absolute favourites! After reading the comments I added a couple of tablespoons of plain flour to my sauce. Needed a good stir but was perfect! So yummy!

  11. I’m going to cook this tonight, I have a few questions though – can I cook it on high for 3 hours instead of 6 hours on low? Can I put the chicken thigh pieces in whole? To thicken the sauce, will the tea towel trick work halfway through cooking? TIA

    1. Hi, Sorry I’ve only just got to your comment now 🙂 Low is ideal but you could hopefully push it through in the high time faster, though it may dry out a little more. Yes you can add the thigh pieces whole. Yep you can thicken with tea towel if you will be home with it or like THIS

  12. A Great Dish. Wonderful taste and a lot of yums at the table.. I had to thicken a lot to suit us though.
    Well done again.

  13. This is super tasty and I served it with taglatelle. The sauce was very thin and runny. Next time I will thicken with flour. Definitely cooking this again

  14. I used cut up chicken thighs as I was late putting it on. Put in on high for first hour and a half then back to low. Was ready in a little over 4 hrs. Served on a bed of mash with steamed veg. A winner in this house. I used the last of my seeded mustard and made up the difference with Dijon. Such an easy, tasty dish.

  15. This is one of our favourite meals! I cut the thighs in half (on low for 5 hours) and serve like that usually on rice with a green salad. ?

  16. This is one of our favourite slow cooker meals! I cut the chicken thighs in half longways (on low for 5 hours) and serve like that, usually on rice with a green salad! Quick and easy to do and delicious! ?

  17. Made this for the first time and it was a huge hit with the family.
    Flavours are great and the chicken just falls apart.
    Served with creamy mash and steamed veg
    I will definitely be making this again

  18. I’ve been cooking a similar meal for 40+ years but the addition of honey & mustard takes it to a new level – & it’s gorgeous. Will be on my ever increasing meal planner!

  19. 5 stars
    Wow, well worth trying, will definitely be doing again, I used chicken thighs and rolled in cornflour before putting in the slow cooker whole and used tea towel trick and I found I didn’t need to thicken at end of cooking, I also added extra bacon, served on a bed of rice and homemade bread rolls, enjoyed by all the family.
