    3 hrs 40 mins

  • Yields: 4 - 6 servings


1kg sliced chicken breast (I browned but its optional, see notes)

4 tablespoons Honey

3 tablespoons American mustard (4 tablespoons if adding cream)

3 tablespoons Whole grain mustard (4 tablespoons if adding cream)

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon Chinese cooking wine

2 tablespoons Lemon juice

2 tablespoons Brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg

1 teaspoon Onion powder

1 teaspoon Garlic powder

4 whole Cloves crushed

300 mls Cooking cream (optional)


1Place all ingredients into slow cooker except for cream

2Mix well

3Cook on low 3-4 hours low

4If having creamy version add cream now before thickening

5Thicken if you wish to your liking (see how to thicken blog)


1Recipe came from reading ingredients on a jar and then just going by my personal taste. The spices seem strong when you add them but they become more mild so don't worry. I found once cream was added that it needed more mustard. Go by personal taste when adding.

2I find when doing a chicken dish especially with cream that if you don't brown you get that split look, browning first helps with that.

3Cooked in aldi 3L slow cooker.

We swapped the chicken for 12 cut chicken sausages
Add 1/2 cup liquid chicken stock to all other ingredients including the cream and put the whole lot in together at the start
Also added a cup of frozen peas and corn
Cooked on low for 5hrs then served with rice
What a great tasting sauce this is 🙂
Thanks Karen x

Omigosh this is A-MA-ZING!!! Thank you so much, we have a new favourite and will be cooking this regularly. I used 8 drumsticks which made such a cheap and delicious meal. And a slop of red wine instead of he chinese wine.
Thickened near the end with 4 tsp cornflour and 1 tsp dry mustard mixed into some of the juices then mixed back in and it made so much amazing juice to pour over mashed potatoes and broccoli.
Yum yum yum, we scraped our plates… so good.

Woolies and Coles sell it 🙂
