Cup-o-Laksa Creamy Chicken 5 0 5 17

A super easy, super tasty, super creamy laksa inspired chicken recipe. JUST 3 INGREDIENTS - how easy is that - super easy! πŸ™‚

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 5 hrs
  • 5 mins

    5 hrs

    5 hrs 5 mins

  • Yields: 5


10 chicken drumsticks

300ml cooking cream

2 x sachets of Asian Laksa cup of soup (I use Continental brand) - dry, no water added


1Place raw chicken in slow cooker

2Combine cream and 2 x dry soup sachets well and pour over chicken

3Cook on low for approx 5hrs


1I served mine with brown rice or cauliflower mash and green veg

2No water added to soup mixes - add them dry

3Cooking cream is a pouring type cream that resists splitting over heat. I use Bulla brand.

4You could swap out the drumsticks for any cut or fillet of chicken you prefer

5It produces plenty of nice thick, creamy sauce to serve over your chicken and side dishes

6You could also shred the chicken, remove bones and stir just the meat through the sauce if you rather

7Only a mild Laksa flavour, not spicy, so very suitable for the whole family

8This is intended for a quick, easy throw with simple ingredients - a huge success with our kids too!

This is an easy, budget and family friendly mild laksa😊
I used chicken thighs and coconut cream and it was yummyπŸ‘
If you would prefer a spicier more authentic tasting laksa, I would suggest adding some Laksa paste.
It turned out lovely and thick, so I think it would work beautifully as a pie filling too😊
Thanks for the recipeπŸ‘

Made this tonight and it was great
I used 750g chicken breast diced up small.
I seared it off in the frypan first
I mixed the two packets of laksa with the 300ml of cooking cream. I put the chicken in the slow cooker.
I then added the cooking cream mixture to the slow cooker and mixed it all together I put on low. Part way through cooking I added some more cooking cream. Probably 450ml cooking cream altogether. After 2 hours and 45 minutes the chicken was cooked so I put it to warm for another hour and 40 minutes until I was ready to serve the rest of the dinner. I served it up with cauliflower and cheese sauce, carrots and peas. Was a great success. Very happy with how it turned out. Next time I’ll add the 600ml cream and serve it with mash or rice

I know I’ve already answered this question on our FB group with you before finding it here but in case others wonder later, yes drop the time down to closer to 3hrs. If you use extra cream you may want to add an extra sachet as the flavours will be diluted somewhat with extra cream πŸ™‚

Hi I will be using 750g of chicken breast diced up small instead and searing off in the frypan first. Would I still cook it on low for 5 hours?
Are the laksa sachets 60g each?
A few people have said they used 600ml of cream instead of 300ml. Just wondering if this would work better? Thanks in advance

We made this tonight for the 2nd time in a week! So simple my 7 year old did it all himself, we used 4 chicken breasts and doubled the sauce. Served over mashed potates and everyone enjoyed it!

Made this tonight it was nice and creamy but I found it a bit bland. By adding Laska paste would it give it more flavour? 😊

An interesting outcome. One in the house absolutely loved this, whilst I was a little non-plussed – nice enough but far from wow for me. I have never been into creamy based dishes (eg never have pasta carbonara!) so I think my personal likes and dislikes definitely influenced my thoughts on this recipe outcome. On the definite plus side – this was very simple to make (using thighs instead of drums) and the recipe, like any recipe, lends itself to experimenting…..

Made this tonight and it was so delicious!!! I used marylands but will try thighs next time .

Hi Barb
It’s possible the water that would have released from the frozen veg you added could have watered it down a little? πŸ™‚

Tried this tonight & added some mixed frozen vegetables, thought it could do with some more spice rather bland, but very easy to do.

This recipe is so easy yet so awesome. I did add chilli paste, garlic, onion, turmeric and instead of cream I used coconut cream. Served with rice noodles. Delicious

Omg I made this last night and all i have to say is YUMMY everyone loved it.. Added extra cream as we like to have sauce to cover the chicken and rice…. Wow!!

Just beware the bacon with the soup doesn’t make it too salty πŸ™‚

Made this tonight….Would like a bit more flavour of Laska…..might add some Laksa paste next time other wise was VERY yummy. The family enjoyed it.

I made this tonight and it was really really REALLY yummy. Husband loved it. Flavours were really nice. I added a little more cream only because we like a lot of sauce, but it didn’t change the taste. Fantastic recipe! Thank you πŸ™‚
