Serving: 4
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 3 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 3 hours 40 minutes


  • 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)


  • Place all ingredients into slow cooker except for cream
  • Mix well
  • Cook on low 3-4 hours low
  • If having creamy version add cream now before thickening
  • Thicken if you wish to your liking (see how to thicken blog)


  • Recipe 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.
  • I 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.
  • Cooked in aldi 3L slow cooker.

  1. I made this for the first time ton8ght and the family loved it and ate dinner ever so fast. Definitely going to put this into the family approved recipes.

    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.

    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
