27 Recipes – Slow Cooker Chicken, Leek and Mushroom Casserole

27 Recipes - Chicken, Leek and Mushroom Casserole || Inspired Life with JessAnother slow cooker meal to finish up this awesome challenge! This time I decided I wanted to cook chicken in the slow cooker, and when I saw a recipe for chicken, leek and mushroom casserole, I thought I would adjust it to suit what I have to cook with, seeing as I love mushroom and wanted to try leek in a recipe anyway!

  3. Mix through the flour and cream, and cook on high uncovered for half and hour to simmer down slightly
  4. Serve with mash potato

My Thoughts

This recipe tasted good, but would probably be better baked to dry it out a bit more, since there was quite a lot of liquid in it. Also, the chicken still looked pretty pink on the outside, but after cutting quite a few pieces, I realised it was actually cooked through

Michael’s Thoughts

Michael said this was yummy, but couldn’t give much more feedback since he is not a connoisseur of this sort of meal
