JILL BAKES | Slow Cooker Creamy Peppered Chicken

I think this is my favourite ever slow cooker recipe… it is honestly so tasty!

Peppered chicken is one of my favourite dishes when I’m eating out so to be able to recreate something like it with the easiness of a slow cooker is amazing!

I used double cream, but you could use reduced fat creme fraiche or light Philadelphia if you wanted to reduce the calories/fat.

I added peppers to up the veg content but you could leave out if you prefer to keep it more like a restaurant!

Try this, I promise you it’s delicious!

Serves 4

2 onions, sliced

250g punnet mushrooms, sliced

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp mustard powder

1 tsp onion granules

1/2 tsp dried parsley

1/2 tsp oregano

1 chicken stock pot

300ml chicken stock (1 stock cube)

1/2-1 tsp black peppercorns, crushed

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp cornflour

4 chicken breasts

2 peppers, sliced

125 ml double cream or reduced fat creme fraiche

2 tbsp cornflour dissolved in 2 tbsp water


1. Preheat slow cooker on low.

2. Crush the peppercorns in a pestle and mortar or in a plastic bag with a rolling pin.

3. Add all the ingredients except the peppers, cream and cornflour paste, and mix well. Set the chicken breasts on top. Cook on low for 6 hours or 4 hours on high.

4. An hour before the end of cooking, remove the chicken breasts from the slow cooker. Mix the cornflour and water in a cup or bowl and stir this in along with the cream or creme fraiche.

5. Add the peppers and stir everything through. Return the chicken on top of the creamy sauce/veg in the slow cooker.

6. Increase to the high setting and cook for 40-60 minutes or until thickened. If using reduced fat creme fraiche make sure it doesn’t boil or it will split.

Serve & enjoy with potatoes, rice or pasta!
