Slow Cooker Sunday: Mixed Fish and Vegetable Soup

Fish Soup

We’re very good at eating at least one portion of fish a week.  However, there are many benefits for having it twice a week.  This week we’ve had Fish soup at the beginning of the week and have a Fish Pie penciled in for Friday.

Slow Cooker Sunday – Chicken and Mushroom Pie (13 May 2012)

Chicken Pot PieMy offering for Slow Cooker Sunday, where we come together and share our recipes, this week is a traditional Chicken and Mushroom Pot Pie with a twist. I saw a photo of one online with a pastry perched on top and I was intrigued. As you know pastry really is a ‘no go’ in a slow cooker. In the end, I cobbled together a couple of recipes with very pleasing results and it was incredibly easy. I may try a Steak and Ale pie next.

Serves 4
Cooking Time: 6-8 hours
Temp: Low


500g of skinless boneless chicken thighs, cubed
2 large carrots, diced
2 sticks of celery, diced
2 TBSP butter
1 medium onion
125g of button mushrooms, halved
2 heaped TBSP of plain flour
400 ml chicken stock
Salt and Pepper

Couple of pinches of dried Thyme
1 bay leaf

140g frozen peas

Ready Rolled Puff Pastry


  1. Bring a sauce pan of water to a boil. Boil the chicken, carrots and celery for 10 minutes. Drain and place in the slow cooker.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a frying pan and sauté the onions and mushrooms for 2-3 minutes until they start to soften. Sprinkle with flour and mix well for about a minute.
  3. Gradually add the stock over a medium heat, it should thicken, season with salt and pepper. Add the Thyme and Bay Leaf. Pour over the chicken mixture in the slow cooker, mix well, cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  4. 30 minutes before serving, stir in the frozen peas.
  5. To make the pastry topping, preheat the oven to 200 degrees, unroll the sheet of pastry and find something 10cm in diameter to cut circles. I used one of my daughter’s toy pans from her play kitchen. Place on a baking tray and cook for ten minutes.

Place a large serving of the chicken mixture in a bowl and top with the pastry.
