    1. yes sorry it is meant to say 3 hours on high or 5 on low, having issues with making changes on the website. Happy batching!

  1. Made this today and it was delicious! It was so easy to just put everything in the slow cooker with no pre-cooking required. The chicken was very tender, the tarragon came through and the sauce was thick and creamy. Can’t wait to cook it again!

    1. My chicken is currently in the freezer at the moment. I have bought everything else fresh and can’t wait to bung it all in the slow cooker! Can’t wait to try it!

  2. Think you might have got the low and high settings crossed? I think it should be 3 hours on high or 5 hours on low?

  3. Cooked this tonight – absolutely gorgeous! Can you freeze the leftovers? I used crême fraiche in place of the double cream. Thanks.

    1. brilliant! Yes you can as long as the chicken hasn’t been frozen before. That sounds delicious!
