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

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!

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…💙💛💜🧡💚❤

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?

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

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.

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

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

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!

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
