Taste is amazing, now a family favourite. Very easy to make with minimum ingredients but great taste.

Oh my gosh! I can’t believe how simple and delicious this is. Takes me back to Bali, next time I will add some chopped up omelette. I will definitely be making this again!


May 23, 2022

This is the second time I’ve made this. Hubby LOVES IT And scoffs it each time. I don’t think it’s bad or anything but not one of my favs. I used full sugar sweet chilli and full salt soya sauce because that what I had in the cupboard. Then added carrot, capcicum and Brocolli. It’s a good recipe so I will rate it highly, but flavour just isn’t to my taste.


May 21, 2022

This dish is amazing , family loved it.

Love your feedback Rick – thank you!


February 20, 2022

tried out this recipe after seeing it the other day and trust me when I say, it did NOT disappoint!!! Was so tasty and was easy to make also with minimal ingredients but was NOT lacking in yumminess !! Will definitely be making this one again!! Even got compliments from the wife on how well it turned out!!

This would have to be one of the tastiest and easiest Asian meals to make. A huge hit with the family.

If counting calories is something you do, you can easily input the ingredients into your calorie counter and have them 🙂


January 12, 2022

Would be great to know how many calories in each dish
Maybe something to aim for in the future

I love that I now have a new version to try too! Thanks so much for sharing your variation Jennifer 🙂

omg loved this recipe i took out the ginger though as im not a fan of it and used seafood marinara mix and seafood highlights instead of chicken and as a seafood lover it was the bomb and had heap left over as im only a small eater soooooooo making this again


October 6, 2021

Loved this ,so tasty. Hubby is not a fan of pasta, rice or noodles but he LOVED this. This was a WINNER.. So easy to make. I used chicken breast and only 1 tablespoon ginger and didn’t add shallots as I didn’t have any. Was yum..

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 4, 2021

440g total Cindy 🙂


September 1, 2021


2 pkts shelf ready thin egg noodles (440g)… does this mean we use 880g of noodles in total?


Veronica Hedger

August 31, 2021

This was absolutely delicious! I added julienned carrots at the start and sliced red capsicum and mushrooms just before the end. It made enough for 4 serves. So yummy! 😋

Raeleen Whiteley

August 30, 2021

Very yummy. I added julienne carrots, broccoli and capsicum.
Next time I will add a little chilli and cashews
We got 4 serves.
Definitely making this again.

Joanne Talarico

Another winner that I had forgotten about as there is soo many. Delicious 🤤

Sally Hurley

May 31, 2021

This was so good. Flavourful cheap and easy to make. 3 generations ate this without complaints and some went back for seconds. Even tastier heated up the next day for lunch. Will definitely be adding this to the rotation.


May 14, 2021

Yum, easy easy, could double vegies to go in it, keep adding water and you get more sauce, spreads it further.. feeds 4 good sized serves..


May 13, 2021

Loved the simplicity of this menu
Everyone ate it (& enjoyed it)
Highly recommend this recipe
Thanks Paulene!


May 11, 2021

First time trying, everyone loved it. As we like heaps of veggies with all our meals I doubled the sauce and added a bag of frozen Asian veggies about 10 /15 mins before serving just to heat them through.
Definitely nice easy and delicious recipe to add to my file

Kerry Brown

May 10, 2021

Reviews are spot on, DELICIOUS 😋
Only thing different, I added 1 carrot and half capsicum.


May 1, 2021

This is absolutely delicious!
I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t like it but oh my goodness it is better than takeout Mee Goreng!
The only thing different I did was I didn’t use a low sodium soy sauce, and I actually added a few dashes more because it tasted like it just needed a little bit of salt.


April 22, 2021

Really lovely meal. Just the right amt of heat for us.
I added capsicum and carrots to it.
Might try beef strips next time…hubby isnt a huge fan of chicken but enjoyed this.


April 21, 2021

Love it. A family favourite, but we use less sweet chilli sauce and use broccoli and carrots instead.


April 2, 2021

This is absolutely delicious and filling, a go to for me since the cook time is less. I don’t add ginger because I’m not a fan, and add a smidge more kecap manis because that stuff is the bomb, and a little less sweet chilli sauce so it’s not overly spicy.


March 30, 2021

Had this tonight and it was incredible. Been wanting to make it for months and finally got around to it and it did not disappoint! My 4 year old had three bowls, will definitely be making this whenever I can!!

Wina Horton

March 25, 2021

Absolutely delicious!!! Will be making this for my son and daughter-in-law next time they come over dinner. Thank you for this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ recipe xx


March 24, 2021

Um……awesome!!! This is the closest to noodlebox i’ve ever had and so easy in the slow cooker!!!! This recipe is a winner!!!!


March 22, 2021

This would have to be one of the nicest stir frys I’ve ever eaten. Leftovers heated in the microwave the next day make for a tasty easy lunch too.

Jill Smith

January 29, 2021

Added 1/4 cabbage and leek at the start, capsicum and snow peas at the end. Also used pre soaked rice noodles as we are gluten-free. Kids loved it too!


January 3, 2021

This has so many raving reviews and I think that maybe my taste preference is a reflection of this review and maybe not the recipe itself, but this wasn’t my favourite, whilst it was very juicy and had flavour, I found it really ginger heavy and kinda watery, I didn’t hate it, and I did alter it, I doubled the recipe but not the ginger (still too much for me) and added 2 bunches of bok choy


September 27, 2020

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.

Joanne Ravensdale

September 25, 2020

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

Renee O’Neill

September 24, 2020

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 ❤️


September 17, 2020

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!


June 20, 2020

Best recipe I have found, house hold favourite now, so quick and easy and best of all super yummy!

Jess Davidson

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!

Kellie Clark

This is a lovely meal! Easy and delicious! A winner! 😀


June 8, 2020

Loved it. Easy to make. Having leftovers tonight

Jo Bate

June 8, 2020

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

Yep if you have the option of two sizes, go with the smaller. An emptier bigger one will cook hotter/faster 🙂

Debbie Millar

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

Debbie Millar

May 9, 2020

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

Christine Stinson

February 17, 2020

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

Linda Campbell

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

Shirley Jones

February 5, 2020

The best !!!

Shirley Jones

February 5, 2020

Its the best!!!! First time used cornflour to thicken but not a fan of taste so haven’t used again. No problem.

Lindy Klarenbeek

February 4, 2020

Absolutely delicious and so easy to make.

Courtney Cooper

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.

Sylvia Scott

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

Kathy Flatman

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


November 4, 2019

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!

Nicole Belton

October 8, 2019

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
Absolutely delicious!!

Kylie Baldwin

October 8, 2019

I added bok choy in this and coriander to the garnish! Was absolutely beautiful.

Danielle. W

October 8, 2019

This is the 💣 recipe….better than take-away….oh this will be on the permanent cooking list…💙💛💜🧡💚❤

Correct 🙂

Both Tablespoon


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!


October 7, 2019

Question: I tbsp cornflour to 1 tsp water?


October 7, 2019

Just confirming that yields 2 means 2 adult servings?

Nancy Murphy

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.


October 6, 2019

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.

Cheryl Brewin

October 6, 2019

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


October 5, 2019

OMG this dish is Devine.
Hubby is a fussy eater and he has said I can cook it again

Sylvia Scott

October 5, 2019

great taste

Janet Pappin

October 5, 2019

Can you use chicken breast instead of thighs

Denise Roberts

October 5, 2019

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.

Glenys Goda

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

Ann Maree

October 2, 2019

Thinking of making this
Do you do double the time if double the chicken please.

Susan Hannan

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

Jennifer Edwards

September 30, 2019

I love this 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😃

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 30, 2019

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

Janet Pappin

September 29, 2019

Would love to see more recipes this looks yum will definitely be giving it a go


September 29, 2019

I bought dry egg noodles. Should I pre cook them before adding into slow cooker?

Darren Comley

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!!!!!!

Tammy Noble

September 27, 2019

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!

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 26, 2019

Depends on the vegetables yes you may need some 🙂


September 26, 2019

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?


September 25, 2019

This is absolutely delicious 😋
Even great rating from all the kids (which never happens lol).
Will be a regular meal 👍

Faye Bergin

September 25, 2019

I made this recipe first time last night. Very tasty.


September 25, 2019

Tried this recipe and loved it. I added cashews and pineapple. Made enough to freeze two more meals for me.

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

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 🙂


September 24, 2019

Could you make this in a bigger slow cooker. I only have a 6lt one.

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 24, 2019

T = Tablespoon
t = teaspoon

Jen Lee

September 24, 2019

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

Gina B

September 22, 2019

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 😋

Leanne Kirk

September 22, 2019

This recipe is to die for
Fed 3 adults comfortably
Taste is amazing
Will become a regular in the household
