Versatile chicken


January 19, 2015

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 6 hrs
  • Yields: 4-6 depending on your serving choice


1 kg chicken thighs, fillet, tenderloins

600 ml Creme fraiche ( or mix 300ml fresh cream and 300ml sour cream)

1 Pkt French onion soup mix

4 cups sliced mushrooms ( or as many as you like)

1 Pkt Philly shredded cheese


1Mix cream mixture and soup mix.

2Put everything into the slow cooker ( except cheese) and you are done.

3Put a tea towel under the lid and cook for 6-8hrs on low

4Mix cheese through in the last hour. If it's too runny leave lid off for last hour or use cornflour to thicken.

5I have served in Vol a vent cases with salad and/or chips and as a pasta dish with crusty bread. Enjoy.

Adding bacon would add to oiliness so I would omit that.

My recipe turned out oily. I added diced bacon and I changed the full cream to lactose free cream. Anything I can do in the future to reduce the oiliness?

Corn and spinach would be no problem πŸ™‚
Just add spinach towards the last 20mins to wilt

Has anyone added corn and baby spinach leaves to this recipe?
And what other ideas can you use this recipe for other than vol a vents?
This recipe sounds amazing and I can’t wait to try it!!
