I have a few health problems, which means there are days when I’m at home in agony. I still want to make a dinner for my family, but don’t always have lots of effort to put in.

It’s really an absolute doddle and you can have this slow cooker chicken mushroom pie filling in your slow cooker in minutes.

Add your chicken.

Add your mushrooms. Crumble in a stock cube or add a stock pot. Add a little thyme, tarragon or rosemary depending on your preferred flavour. I find tarragon works really well and often used dried for convenience.

Cook on low for 8+ hours. I cooked ours overnight, for 10 hours, and it was lovely and flaky. If you want to keep larger chunks of chicken then used diced chicken and cook for 4-5 hours on low or 3 hours on high.
