This dish is packed with flavour. I doubled the recipe because l had just over a kilo of chicken but the only ingredient l didnt double was the ginger because l dont like a strong ginger flavour. Highly recommend this recipe.

Kids absolutely loved this one. Will be on our rotation as so easy to make.

DELICIOUS!! My fussy eater husband had one mouth full and said oh yum this is a 9.5 out of 10. Then after his second mouthful said actually this is a 10 out of 10. It’s a definite winner in our household. Thanks Paulene you nailed it ❤️

Very tasty meal. I added bok choy and carrot (cut into matchsticks) when adding the noodles, and the end result was plenty for 4 serves, not 2. Next time I would add two bunches of bok choy, as we found the dish a little sauce-heavy (plus we like veg!).
September 16, 2020
This was a great discovery thx. Hubby & me really enjoyed this. Will be a regular!

Best recipe I have found, house hold favourite now, so quick and easy and best of all super yummy!
June 18, 2020
You know that feeling when your so full that you feel you couldn’t possibly have another spoon but the food is that good you do it anyway ? Well this meal made me so full I kept eating because the taste was just AMAZING, I didn’t want to stop tasting it 😂, my 2 year old also loved it, so glad I tried this !! Definitely a new favourite
June 16, 2020
We had this for the first time last night and it was really good but quite salty despite using low salt soy sauce. Is there any way to remedy this? Otherwise it was delicious. I made it the day before and refrigerated it and I don’t know if this made a difference to it. Would definitely make it again though!
June 8, 2020
This is a lovely meal! Easy and delicious! A winner! 😀
Loved it. Easy to make. Having leftovers tonight
We absolutely loved this, so easy and so yummy, definitely going on our favourite list
June 6, 2020
Milena Love this recipe was so delicious carn’t believe it’s cooked in the slow cooker
June 2, 2020
This was Delicious, so easy and all done in slow cooker amazing: Will be cooking this again and again.
May 25, 2020
OMG. This was amazing! I doubled everything because we’re a family of 6, and because I was running late today I put it in the oven (sorry). Added carrots and capsicum that needed to be used. Definitely added to the rotation.
May 18, 2020
100% one of the most delicious things I’ve ever slow cooked! Loved by the whole family, the only complaint is there is never any leftovers , I cook it at least once every few weeks and if I don’t my family is asking for it mmmm
May 11, 2020
Yep if you have the option of two sizes, go with the smaller. An emptier bigger one will cook hotter/faster 🙂
May 9, 2020
Had for dinner tonight was really yummy added broccoli and bok Choi as someone else did was lovely awesome flavour definitely on our menu rotation. Son said better than bought Me Goreng thanks Pauline
Am I better to use a smaller slow cooker as in 4 Ltr rather than larger
February 17, 2020
Made this a few weeks ago and we both loved it full of flavour will certainly make it again soon
Missed my slow cooker when I became a great nomad. Bought a small one at Kmart. Thought I would give this ago as it didn’t take all day to cook and was keen to try the slow cooker out. It was amazing and very tasty. Being a cook I usually don’t follow recipes much. Perfect the way it is. Would change it
February 16, 2020
It was great family loved it. Definately make again
February 6, 2020
I have fussy eaters and it made my 2 year old who doesn’t talk say “more” it was a winner, if I could give more than 5 stars I would
February 5, 2020
The best !!!
Its the best!!!! First time used cornflour to thicken but not a fan of taste so haven’t used again. No problem.
February 4, 2020
Absolutely delicious and so easy to make.
January 21, 2020
Yummy!!!! Empty bowls all round which is a winner when it comes to 2 kids trying new dishes. I added some water chestnuts for some crunch. When I asked my husband what he thought his reply was “so when are you making that again?” Definitely going to be a regular in our house
January 3, 2020
Made this the other night
Hubby thought it was fantastic 😊
Will be a regular in our house
January 1, 2020
Absolutely delicious and easy to cook.
December 14, 2019
great recipe My husband loves it Made it for dinner but ended up eating it for lunch -it was delicious thank you enough for 4
November 23, 2019
Instead of thin egg noodles could I add rice noodle for last 5/10 minutes as they usually only need adding to a bowl of boiling water for a couple of minutes don’t usually have to cook them
November 4, 2019
Yummo. Made a couple of changes tho being over chicken.
Substituted 450g diced lamb fat removed
Added 1 cup finely chopped broccoli florets and added with the sauces
Pre scrambled 2 eggs and added with the shallots, sprouts etc
Used only 1 tbsp ginger
Cooked all up for aprox 4 hrs on low all up
Really yummy. Hubby wants it added to regular meal rotation
Love love love this recipe! Even the fussy child loved it!
October 10, 2019
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
October 8, 2019
I am disappointed….. at myself! For not reading the serving size and ripping myself off more of this delicious recipe. Can’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
I added bok choy in this and coriander to the garnish! Was absolutely beautiful.
This is the 💣 recipe….better than take-away….oh this will be on the permanent cooking list…💙💛💜🧡💚❤
October 7, 2019
Delicious! Although hubby and son found it a little hot for their liking so will reduce the sweet chilli sauce next time!
Question: I tbsp cornflour to 1 tsp water?
Just confirming that yields 2 means 2 adult servings?
October 6, 2019
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
OMG this dish is Devine.
Hubby is a fussy eater and he has said I can cook it again
Can you use chicken breast instead of thighs
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.
October 3, 2019
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 🙂 Be sure to still do step 1
October 2, 2019
Thinking of making this
Do you do double the time if double the chicken please.
October 1, 2019
Love this recipe. 11 year old fussy eater loved it huge bonus. Doubled recipe added snow peas and water crest (tin).
A new regular in this house.
Thank you Pauline
September 30, 2019
I love this recipe..it will go into my favourites for sure..I used spring onions instead of shallots. As I don’t yet possess a searing slow cooker I didn’t sear the chicken before I put it in the slow cooker…I am a bit lazy that way…I didn’t add veg as I was cooking this for the next evening’s meal…I just added the veg 1/2 cooked in the microwave before I heated it up. Great flavourful dish😃
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
September 29, 2019
Would love to see more recipes this looks yum will definitely be giving it a go
I bought dry egg noodles. Should I pre cook them before adding into slow cooker?
September 27, 2019
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!
Depends on the vegetables yes you may need some 🙂
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 it’s a recipe that does not include packets or jars.
September 25, 2019
If adding extra vegetables show I increase the liquid?
This is absolutely delicious 😋
Even great rating from all the kids (which never happens lol).
Will be a regular meal 👍
I made this recipe first time last night. Very tasty.
Tried this recipe and loved it. I added cashews and pineapple. Made enough to freeze two more meals for me.
September 24, 2019
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 🙂
Could you make this in a bigger slow cooker. I only have a 6lt one.
T = Tablespoon
t = teaspoon
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
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 😋
This recipe is to die for
Fed 3 adults comfortably
Taste is amazing
Will become a regular in the household
