1kg of chicken thigh, diced
300 grams of bacon, diced
400 grams of mushroom, sliced
One onion, diced
Three teaspoons of garlic, minced
Two cans of condensed Cream of Chicken soup
Two x 600mL of thickened cream
One chicken stock cube
One packet of 500 grams of fettuccine
1. Add chicken, onion, bacon, garlic, mushrooms and stock cube into the slow cooker.
2. Pour over the soup mix.
3. Add cream and stir together.
4. Cook on low for four hours.
5. Put pasta in the slow cooker.
6. Gently combine all of the ingredients.
7. Cook on high for a further 1.5 hours in the six litre slow cooker.
To make the delicious pasta dish, India said she simply put all of the ingredients in her slow cooker for several hours.
While many assumed she must have browned the chicken or cooked the pasta first, the cook said in fact she just ‘threw everything in’ and waited 90 minutes.
She said she made a lot, but wouldn’t advise freezing the carbonara after cooking, due to the inclusion of cream.
This isn’t the first pasta dish to have captured the attention of the internet (pictured: a previous carbonara dish)
Those who saw the budget recipe on Facebook were hugely impressed.
‘Oh my goodness, this looks delicious,’ one woman wrote.
‘This looks amazing. My husband would die for this,’ another added.
