4 Ingredients or LESS!, Chicken
July 27, 2017
A super easy, super tasty, super creamy laksa inspired chicken recipe. JUST 3 INGREDIENTS - how easy is that - super easy! :)
5 hrs 5 mins
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!

Sounds really good but I am not a huge fan of Laksa soup. Could you use a different Cup-o-soup mix?

Will definitely make this again, but will try using chicken thighs or breasts dice for a change, very tasty, made leftovers into a family pie & froze for a later date.

I made this but change it slightly. I only had 300ml cream so I added 1 tin of evaporated milk , also added 1 red capsicum and frozen peas.
I got a 👍 from family and definitely making again.

Tried this tonight, used 7 drums.
Five hours was a long time and 3.5 was sufficient.
Quite bland so added bacon then added more cream at the end.
Served with cauli purée and steamed veg.

Had high hopes for this but the whole family were disappointed with it’s blandness. Made cauliflower rice to go with it but that didn’t lift it. Got a 4.5/10 so I won’t be asked to make it again. You never know til you give it a go though!

So after finding the recipe a little non-wow for my tastes on the flavour side, I went back to it again. My shop no longer has the red curry soup mix I’d been using in subsequent attempts, so went back to Asian Laksa. I quartered skinless chicken thighs and seasoned them in garlic powder, season all salt and cracked black pepper. I pan fried 1 onion, 6 diced slices short cut bacon, 5 chopped chillis (seeds IN!!) in a heaped teaspoon of minced garlic. Combined all and more black pepper. 3.75 hours low and then added rinsed noodles for last 15 minutes.
Oh my god the flavour was intense!!!

We had never had Laksa of any kind before and we really enjoyed this. Used 500g diced chicken breast as its the only type I’ll eat and it cooked on low easily for 3hrs. Served with rice and lettuce. Another chicken dinner winner.

This was great, nice and tasty 😁 used maryland pieces, just a bit more meat.
July 19, 2018
Made this for the third time. Doesn’t disappoint!! Used two very large breast fillets on high for 2.5hrs. Doubled the recipe as the family loves the sauce.
Plates nearly licked clean. Everyone went back for seconds. Just enough for one serve for school lunch tomorrow. I think there’s going to be a race in the morning.
Other times I have made it I’ve fried off some bacon and onion and added it at the beginning. I always shred the meat to make sure the sauce goes everywhere.
Such an easy recipe. Great for times when I’m time poor. I keep an eye out for when the soups are on special and purchase a few extra packets.
Thank you for thinking of this recipe.

Yummo! Loved the flavour, I used chicken breast instead of drumsticks. I found the consistinacy a little thick, so may use pouring cream instead of cooking cream next time. Will be making it again, That’s for sure!
June 11, 2018
This was a hit with my family will be cooking it again
June 6, 2018
Simple and delicious, exactly what slow cooking should be! Absolutely loved it!
June 5, 2018
I am trying this today but with two packets of chicken sausages. I did add a bit of liquid as i’ve left it to do its thing while i’m at work and dont want it drying out. If it’s too soupy, i will add some rice to soak it up as i will be serving it with rice anyway.

This recipe was so easy to make. I used coconut milk , added garlic and onion and served with fettuccine. Fussy hubby loved it .. will definitely be making this again
First time making this. Really easy and quite tasty however I felt it needed a bit more oompfff and flavour so I added 2 tablespoons of laksa paste, sliced onion, garlic and kale. I will definitely make this again
Cooked this for my neighbours last night everyone had seconds …..delicious once again thank you for the recipe 😃
May 31, 2018
What a gorgeous dish! We all loved this, even Ms Oh So Fussy 17! I did add some chopped onion and garlic. Thanks for sharing such a lovely recipe.
May 30, 2018
Omg I had that last night and the family absolutely loved it. I did add a little more chilli and used Thigh fillets instead of legs. I also added a small can of coconut milk as well. It almost became shredded Chicken 😁
Served it on a bed of rice and veg on the side 👍
This was delicious! I used 1kg thigh fillets, 600mls of cooking cream and 3 satchels. Shredded and added cooked penne pasta, served with garlic bread. Was so easy to prepare. My fussy family gave it 10/10!!! Winner!! Thank you Pauline 😁

I love this recipe! Not too spicy which is perfect for me. Lovely and creamy with lots of sauce. I’ll be making this again!
May 26, 2018
I love this! Not spicy (which is perfect for me). Delicious flavour and very creamy. Makes lots of sauce. Will be making this again!

Can’t wait to make this, it looks so yummy. I’m new to using cooking cream so not sure if this recipe is ok to freeze once cooked?
May 23, 2018
I made it with chicken breast (cut up and seared first) and used a big tin of coconut cream and about half a can of water, added some sweet potato and potato, and kaffir lime leaf. We ate it over rice, and it was so delish!
Was going to freeze left overs, but they got eaten too quickly.
May 12, 2018
Made this tonight, used coconut cream as it was all I had. Added in some frozen corn mix about 45 mins before I served.
Super easy to make and all the kids ate it without a problem. Will definitely make it again.

Made this a few times now and it’s a winner! Even fussy eaters loved it. I used coconut cream instead of cooking cream the second time I made it and it tastes no different 🙂 added carrots too and tasted fab. Definitely on my favs list.
April 27, 2018
Delicious!!! I added garlic to mine.
The whole family enjoyed this.
April 12, 2018
I have made this a few times and it is absolutely DELICIOUS!!!!
This is an easy, budget and family friendly mild laksa😊
I used chicken thighs and coconut cream and it was yummy👍
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 recipe👍

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 🙂
October 15, 2017
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!
September 24, 2017
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? 😊
Love this!! I did mine with chicken thigh fillets…. even my fussy boys enjoyed it and said they would eat it again….. Mummy Win 😁😁😁
September 23, 2017
Soo yummy! Fed 5 adults and the bowl was empty straight away. Wish there was more for seconds
September 3, 2017
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…..
August 25, 2017
Made this tonight and it was so delicious!!! I used marylands but will try thighs next time .
August 21, 2017
It’s possible the water that would have released from the frozen veg you added could have watered it down a little? 🙂
August 18, 2017
Tried this tonight & added some mixed frozen vegetables, thought it could do with some more spice rather bland, but very easy to do.
August 13, 2017
It’s yummy 😋 I just used coconut cream instead of the cream
Will make it for sure heaps
August 2, 2017
I made this tonight and it was really yum and was quite cheap to feed my family, I’m going to add muchrooms next time 🙂
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
August 1, 2017
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!!
July 31, 2017
Just beware the bacon with the soup doesn’t make it too salty 🙂
July 30, 2017
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.
OMG… AHMAZING!!!! was worried the smell was divine for me but thought it might be too spicy for Miss 10 but she gobbled it up… Served hers with mash and myself brown rice defiantly making it again!!!!
I’m cooking this tomorrow night. I brought 2 tubs of cream cause the more sauce the better plus I am going to add bacon pieces
Very nice will be making this again
July 29, 2017
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 🙂
Sounds yummy. I hit the first red heart save !!! I always have those ingredients on hand so this can be an easy go to for me. !!!
I cannot wait to try this on the weekend. Thanks Paulene!
