Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ cup chicken stock (broth)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ½ cup double cream (heavy cream)
  • 2 tablespoon grated parmesan
  • 3 teaspoon cornflour (corn starch)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Place the chicken breasts in the slow cooker, and add the chicken stock, chopped garlic, thyme and sliced mushrooms.
  • Cook on low for 5-6 hours, or 3 hours on high.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, remove the chicken breasts, add the parmesan, double cream and cornflour (which is mixed with 2 tablespoons of water), and cook for 5-10 minutes longer on high, until it thickens into a sauce.
  • Add the chicken back to the slow cooker, and garnish with fresh parsley.

Notes

The cream has to be at room temperature, otherwise it curdles when it's added to the slow cooker.
