BBQ Plum Chicken


September 27, 2016

A lovely Asian flavouring for chicken pieces (or fillets)

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 5 hrs


10 chicken drumsticks (though you could easily use chicken fillets instead if you prefer)

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

1/4 cup Plum sauce

2 tbsp Hoisin sauce

2 cloves minced garlic

Optional: 1 tbsp cornflour to thicken sauce if required


1Place chicken in slow cooker

2Combine all other ingredients and pour over chicken

3Cook on low for approx 5hrs

4I mixed cornflour with a little water, than added this to the bowl and stirred it through the sauce to thicken it 10 mins prior to serving the chicken

5Serve with mashed potato and a pile of steamed veg

Can you use chicken fillets, if so how much would be equal to 10 drumsticks. Thankyou

Cooked this last night for dinner, it was absolutely delicious. When hubby asked what I was making when he saw the ingredients on the bench he was a bit iffy about whether he would like it because of the bbq sauce. He couldn’t stop mentioning how nice it smelt while it was cooking. Served with mash and vegetables, well he was full of compliments and said he would definitely love to have it again. Winner, Winner with this one. 😋😋

Oh yum. Beautiful dish. I made it with chicken thighs and served with tagliatelle. Also so easy to prepare.
So good

Was deeeelish!
Didn’t change a thing, sweet and tangy, served with mash & veg.
Left lid off for last 20 minutes of cooking for the sauce to thicken (used tea towel under lid)

Had this tonight with basmati rice and chilli garlic broccolini. Was devoured with gusto by the teenagers, and is now on the cook again list! Thanks, an easy delicious dinner after a hot day!

5hrs on low. Yummo diddleo!

Such an easy, and really tasty recipe. The whole fam love it. We use thigh fillets. Sometimes we have it with mash and veg, sometimes we have with rice (and stir fry veg).

My family and I tried this meal and it was absolutely delicious! It was so simple and had so much flavour, definitely one our favourite slow cooked meals. We shredded the chicken and put it over potato gems with bacon and cheese and it was amazing, so yummy! Thank you for this beautiful recipe.

Made this last night (drumsticks) and Oh Em Gee it was GOOD!!!! We served over chips, with all that yummy sauce on them as well, along with a side of green beans.
We will definitely be having this again!

Made this a couple of times now and everyone really enjoys it, I used a mixture of thighs and drumsticks with skin removed ( I find it less fatty this way) It’s a really quick and easy recipe. I put a tea towel under the lid during cooking and didn’t need to thicken the sauce at all. This will be one of our regular sc recipes

So quick and easy to prepare and has the best flavour. Like Toni said, the sauce was just right, not too sweet or gluggy!

Thanks Toni! 🙂
