The recipe can be reduced in size but the home cook revealed he does shift work and enjoys taking frozen meals with him. 

To make the dish at home you will need a six-litre slow cooker as well as chicken, bacon, an onion, pasta and three cans of cream of chicken condensed soup.

The decadent dish also calls for thickened cream, garlic, mushrooms and chicken stock cubes.

To create the recipe at home you must first add the chicken, onion, bacon, mushrooms, stock cubes, soup, garlic and cream into your slow cooker.

This is to be cooked on low for four hours before the pasta is added.

Then it needs to be cooked on low for another hour and a half until the pasta is ready.

The dish takes five and a half hours to cook using the slow cooker but has been described as 'perfect' by home cooks
