Use just a few ingredients to create this no-fuss slow cooker chicken thigh dish with a creamy honey and mustard sauce. Kids will love it.

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 5 minutes
    •    Cook time: 4 hours & 20 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4-6


    •    1 tbsp butter
    •    2 tbsps honey
    •    8 chicken thighs
    •    100g frozen peas
    •    150ml chicken stock
    •    1 tbsp Dijon mustard
    •    2 tbsps double cream
    •    8 spring onion, cut into lengths


  1. Heat the slow cooker. Melt the butter in a frying pan and quickly brown the chicken thighs all over. Make sure the skin picks up plenty of colour. Season, then put them in the slow cooker. Brown the spring onions and add them to the slow cooker as well. Add the stock, mustard and honey and cook on low for 4 hrs.
  2. Stir in the cream or crème fraîche and peas, then cook for a further 15 mins with the lid off. Re-crisp up the chicken skin under the grill, if you like.
