Love it and so do my teenage boys! I make my own homemade tomato sauce so it is low carb, rather than buy a jar sauce. It’s on regular rotation in our house.

We loved this one, I added spinach under the cheese, yum
Yummy, kids loved it. Used chicken breast.

I had clean plates with this one, even from Fussy Mr 6. Served with rice and stir fried veg

This is too easy and also very tasty. I added spinach (when I added the cheese) between chicken and cheese…

We had this but used chicken breast instead.
Definitely a favourite in my household 🤤

This was amazing and so easy. I also added jalapeños then the cheese. Definitely no leftovers in my house.

I used drumsticks tonight as thats what I had
I should’ve scooped out more of the liquid, but other than that, delicious

One of our super easy favourites, always make extra chicken fillet for Husband’s lunch the next day. Very tasty

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I did the BBQ version I used 2 bottles of 333’s bbq rib sauce (my favourite) served with wedges and garlic bread. Delicious
April 21, 2021
Lots of sauce leftover which I made into minestrone.

For the people who used chicken breasts instead, did you use them whole or cut in half or even thirds?? Thanks!

If you wanted to add ham I’d add it in the last hour for it to heat through well enough
April 13, 2021
When would u put the ham on top
April 2, 2021
My two young boys and I love this. It’s cheap, easy to cook and everyone enjoys it. We’re now cooking it atleast once a week 🙂

Super easy and super yum! We used chicken breast and it was just delicious!

Putting a t/towel under the lid stops condensation drips into bowl and stops food getting too soggy
February 19, 2020
Easy and delicious! I used chicken breast, cooked on low 4 hours and it was perfect, i added cheese during the last hour. Went down well with my young kids, will be making again
February 2, 2020
I used chicken breast (still havent ever used thigh and kinda too scared), needed to remove the liquid at the end but it was so yum!! And super easy
February 13, 2019
Absolutely loved this meal, and so did my hubby and daughter. Will definitely be having this again, and being so, so easy to prepare is an added bonus.

Would I put ham on at same time as cheese?
November 3, 2018
Simple & Satisfying no fuss recipe!
October 14, 2018
Super tasty, super easy! Added bacon as well . A keeper for sure. I did spoon out some of the sauce before covering with cheese.
September 28, 2018
It was absolutely delicious. My entire family loved it, and my picky toddler are every last bit.
August 12, 2018
It doesn’t stick because the chicken releases HEAPS of it’s own liquid… it’s almost swimming in it by the end – hence no sticking ever 🙂
August 9, 2018
How does this not stick to the bowl? If I did this in my SC I would end up with a mess of chicken and sauce stuck like glue! :-\

You can always sear the chicken first (and cut back cooking time) to reduce liquids coming from chicken
Also you can start with just chicken, drain juices, then add the sauce/cheese after 🙂
Loved this recipe . So Easy. I did the tea towel trick and also removed some of the sauce but mine still seemed a bit “watery”, Would love some recommendations for he tomatoe sauce. Will definitely be making again.
June 28, 2018
Absolutely delicious! This will now be one of our weekly faves!
June 12, 2018
First attempt at this today, and it was amazing!!!! So simple and easy, 15 mins wasn’t enough to melt the cheese all the way, so put under the grill for a couple of mins and it was sensational. It a must try everyone 👌🏼👌🏼
May 1, 2018
I enjoyed this and have lots of leftovers as my partner wasn’t too keen. Next time I’m going to try Paulenes BBQ version. I also put it into the oven for a couple of minutes to brown the cheese.
April 29, 2018
This was a big hit in our house. Voted a resounding 8/10 so we shall be making it again.
March 18, 2018
Easy and delicious! Used a jar of bolognaise pasta sauce and breast fillets. I actually finished it with smoked ham and topped with cheese but under the grill as I’m planning to shred the leftover chicken into the sauce to use for burritos tomorrow night
March 12, 2018
I made a BBQ version of this one
Swapping the tomato based sauce for a small bottle of BBQ Rib sauce and I added a diced onion over the chicken fillets also
Still added the cheese at the end
The kids especially LOVED this version (we are a bbq over tomato fan family here lol)
When I make it again I think I’ll stick to the BBQ version 🙂

I make this using chicken breasts as thats what we prefer, it is absolutely divine! And it takes 30 seconds to put on!
February 22, 2018
I made this and it was amazing. I added bacon and used chicken breast because i like the breast better. I also used herb and garlic pizza sauce.
February 13, 2018
You can increase it to as many fillets for serves as you need 🙂 Working on 2 fillets per person
February 12, 2018
How many does this recipe serve?
February 10, 2018
This was soooo beautiful and so easy definitely on my list to make again
January 9, 2018
Seriously the easiest and yummiest tasting ever!! I did add sliced ham in between the chicken and sauce 🙂
January 3, 2018
Yum, enjoyed by the whole family. Will now become regular in my house. It’s nice to find something that everyone eats and enjoys especially with fussy kids. I added sliced ham and a few Italian herbs. Kids thought it tasted like a pizza so I’ll take that as a win.
December 19, 2017
This meal was delicious and so so easy to make. It was a big hit with my family. Definately going to do it again. The left over sauce is in freezer for my spag bol i think.
November 26, 2017
Brilliant. I used thighs bacon pieces and a chunky tomato And herb Lego’s sauce. Everyone loved it. Next time adding garlic. This will bye a regular
November 19, 2017
Delicious! I added ham and left the lid off for the last hour, temp high to reduce the liquid. Also left the lid off to melt the cheese. Such a versatile recipe, simply change the sauce to change the flavour! Next time i am going to try romano sauce and add bacon & olives.
November 17, 2017
Wow delicious I did use the leggos pizza sauce and it did give a lot more flavour.
Next time I want to try the ham with it!
November 16, 2017
Wow this meal is just amazing !! I added a slice of ham to each thigh and then followed the recipe and served them with chips, veggies and garlic bread. All 5 family members were extremely pleased with the result and licked their plates clean. Definitely a new family favourite at our place, thanks for yet another brilliant recipe Paulene 🙂
November 13, 2017
Tried this tonight and it was scoffed down by everyone! I just used a tin of crushed tomatoes and added some Italian herbs and garlic and bacon. Really easy and will definitely make it again! 🙂
November 9, 2017
This was absolutely scrumptious

The Tea Towel Trick
November 7, 2017
Can you please explain the tea towel trick, thanks
November 4, 2017
Super easy and yum. I added ham between the chicken and sauce. Even the picky eater was happy.
