The Slow Cooker Mustard Chicken and Bacon is the perfect meal to put in your slow cooker on a busy week day – before work or after the school run – and leave to cook all day. When you get home you just need to throw leeks in for the last thirty minutes and the dish is ready when you are.

When should we cook this dish?

This is a great slow cooker chicken casserole to enjoy all year round but it’s especially wholesome and warmer throughout the winter months. It would also work well as a pie filling and it’s something we love to cook regularly as it’s so easy to make and full of flavour too.

If you’re looking for a meal that the whole family will enjoy and that works well on a weekday evening but would also be great as more of a special meal, a meal for an occasion, then the Slow Cooker Mustard Chicken and Bacon is a great option.

Crock pot meals are so family friendly and they are key to organising busy family life. This mustard chicken slow cooker recipe can be batch cooked and doubled up easily and it works best using chicken thighs rather than chicken breasts as they stay moist throughout cooking.

You could also throw new potatoes into the mix to make it a really filling one pot meal if you don’t have time to cook potatoes separately. You could also cook pasta to make it a mustard chicken pasta dish.

One thing’s for sure, however you cook it, the Slow Cooker Mustard Chicken and Bacon will be a hit with everyone who tries it. The flavours work wonderfully together and it really is a joy to eat and savour. It’s the ultimate comfort food.
