Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 6 hours
Total Time 6 hours 10 minutes


  • 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


  • Mix cream mixture and soup mix.
  • Put everything into the slow cooker ( except cheese) and you are done.
  • Put a tea towel under the lid and cook for 6-8hrs on low
  • Mix cheese through in the last hour. If it's too runny leave lid off for last hour or use cornflour to thicken.
  • I have served in Vol a vent cases with salad and/or chips and as a pasta dish with crusty bread. Enjoy.

  1. 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!!

    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?
