A warning for uniformed blokes cooking this: 2 pkts shelf ready thin egg noodles (440g) = *1* packet (it contains *2* individual packets) ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh well, looks like I make it again soon! Tastes great.

One word: yummo!!


October 14, 2019

What an outstanding and easy recipe. I doubled all the ingredients except for the chilli sauce. Will definitely be making this again and again and again. Thanks Paulene.

Seriously amazing dish and I have only tried it with already cooked bbq chook!! Can’t wait to try it with raw chicken!! Flavours are amazing and even fussy 15yr old ate it

I am disappointed….. at myself! For not reading the serving size and ripping myself off more of this delicious recipe. Canโ€™t wait to make it again (a double batch) yum!

Love this recipe
I had to change a it a little. I used rice noodles instead of egg noodles and I used fountain honey/soy sauce instead of sweet soy, cause I haven’t been able to find one gluten free. All this is only due to my husband is celiac, so he can’t have any gluten at all in anything.
I also added some mixed veggies too
Absolutely delicious!!

Delicious! Although hubby and son found it a little hot for their liking so will reduce the sweet chilli sauce next time!


October 7, 2019

Question: I tbsp cornflour to 1 tsp water?


October 7, 2019

Just confirming that yields 2 means 2 adult servings?

Made this for dinner tonight and was not disappointed after all the glowing reviews. Full of flavour and very tasty. Made exactly as recipe except I did not need the cornflour slurry. Will certainly be making again. Thanks for a terrific recipe Pauline.

Yum!!! I doubled everything except the sweet chilli and ginger and it was devoured by my fussy family. We’ll get 2 meals out of this for 2 adults and 2 boys aged 10 & 16. Will be on the menu again for sure.

Made it last night and everyone loved it. It says ‘yields 2’ but with added veg (beans, snow peas, carrot & red capsicum – added about 15 min before it finished) and 1 and 1/2 quantities of sauces, it fed 4 people.

Yes it’s just not as moist


October 5, 2019

This was absolutely delicious and will be a regular on our dinner menu

Hubby is a fussy eater and he has said I can cook it again

I was not disappointed with this recipe. I double and a halved the recipe and the entire family (3 adults) loved it. Would definitely do it again.

This recipe is absolutely amazing.
Will definitely be making again
Who would’ve thought you could make this in a slow cooker.
I need to give this a 6 star rating

No it would still be a similar time ๐Ÿ™‚ Be sure to still do step 1

Thinking of making this
Do you do double the time if double the chicken please.

A new regular in this house.
Thank you Pauline

I love this will go into my favourites for sure..I used spring onions instead of shallots. As I donโ€™t yet possess a searing slow cooker I didnโ€™t sear the chicken before I put it in the slow cooker…I am a bit lazy that way…I didnโ€™t add veg as I was cooking this for the next eveningโ€™s meal…I just added the veg 1/2 cooked in the microwave before I heated it up. Great flavourful dish๐Ÿ˜ƒ

The kind you have to soak first? If they are the soft pasta kind from the shelf they are the right ones but if yours are hard and dry yep pre soak first

Would love to see more recipes this looks yum will definitely be giving it a go


September 29, 2019

I bought dry egg noodles. Should I pre cook them before adding into slow cooker?

Darren Comley

Wow, what a brilliant recipe with awesome flavor – everyone loved it!!! We doubled the chicken and the sauces, wound back on the ginger and used spring onions in place of shallots. I also never use cornflour slurry’s as i don’t like how they affect taste. The outcome was brilliant and we’re already ready to do it again!!!!!!

Made this a couple of nights ago – we all loved it! We will definitely be doing it again!


September 26, 2019

Had for dinner last night, was delicious, had a tiny bit of spice from the sweet chilli so if you don’t like spicy Mabey less sauce but sooooo good!

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 26, 2019

Depends on the vegetables yes you may need some ๐Ÿ™‚


September 26, 2019

Made this for the first time this week. Added less ginger by accident but would add even less next time. (2 out of 3 not big ginger fans) Son has commented several times how nice it was. Hint hint. I especially like that itโ€™s a recipe that does not include packets or jars.


September 25, 2019

If adding extra vegetables show I increase the liquid?


September 25, 2019

This is absolutely delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹
Even great rating from all the kids (which never happens lol).
Will be a regular meal ๐Ÿ‘

I made this recipe first time last night. Very tasty.


September 25, 2019

Tried this recipe and loved it. I added cashews and pineapple. Made enough to freeze two more meals for me.

Yes you can Sarah, just be mindful that a bigger cooker when emptier will be hotter so just keep an eye on it and reduce times if you think it’s done sooner ๐Ÿ™‚


September 24, 2019

Could you make this in a bigger slow cooker. I only have a 6lt one.

T = Tablespoon

Easy, Quick, Cheap meal of deliciousness!! Full of flavour. I added green beans and snow peas 1/2 off the chicken being cooked.
This will definitely be cooked regularly in my home. Great recipe!!


September 23, 2019

Is the measurements for tablespoons or teaspoons for the recipe ? Thanks

September 22, 2019

Super delicious! This will definitely be a regular in our house, especially because all the ingredients are actually things I usually have on hand. Made with beef strips as I had them defrosted already, will try chicken next time ๐Ÿ˜‹
