Serving: 5
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 4 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 4 hours 40 minutes


  • 1kg skinless chicken thigh fillets
  • 300ml cooking cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock liquid
  • 2 tblsp of soy sauce (I used low salt version)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tblsp minced garlic
  • S&P to taste


  • Place raw chicken fillets in slow cooker (whole)
  • Combine all other ingredients in a jug and whisk to combine well
  • Pour over chicken
  • Cook on low for 4.5hrs
  • Prior to serving I pulled apart/shredded chicken in the slow cooker
  • It comes apart easily just with two plastic utensils so as not to scratch your cooker
  • For low carb I serve mine on carb free konjac "pasta"
  • The rest of the family had theirs on regular pasta

  1. I was inspired by this recipe but primped it with onions and garlic fried with yellow curry paste plus chilli flakes, grated ginger and Kaffir lime leaves. It worked REALLY well. Because I wasn’t worried about the carbs I served it with black rice boiled then chucked into a thermos for the same time as the meal.

    I loved this. So easy to make compared to my previous satay recipe. Eldest daughter loved it the way it was (and she hates chicken thighs), but hubby felt it was missing something. Next time when I make it, because I will be making it again, I might add a couple of dashes of Tobasco sauce to it to give it a little bit of kick. Being that I am Insulin Resistant and should be curbing my carb intake, I am loving that it is low carb, even if I did eat it with rice ;).

  3. This was so easy to make and yummy too! My kids also enjoyed it. Hubby wasn’t a huge fan, he thought it was okay, but he is happy to take leftovers to work tomorrow for lunch 😉 We had rice with it, and some steamed vegies.. I will definitely make it again.

  4. Hi Pauline, if substituting coconut cream for cooking cream (dairy intolerance) do you think it would curdle like regular cream apparently does?

  5. This was a huge hit in this house. One of the best peanut/satay chicken recipes I’ve found. Served with zoodles. Sooo good

  6. Another winner!!! Thank you so much x
    I did vary it a bit as was out of cooking cream. I used coconut milk, 2 heaped tablespoons if cornflour and I added a thumb of ginger. Yummo!!!!
