  • Yields: 5


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 tblsp minced garlic

S&P to taste


1Place raw chicken fillets in slow cooker (whole)

2Combine all other ingredients in a jug and whisk to combine well

3Pour over chicken

4Cook on low for 4.5hrs

5Prior to serving I pulled apart/shredded chicken in the slow cooker

6It comes apart easily just with two plastic utensils so as not to scratch your cooker

8The rest of the family had theirs on regular pasta

Could I use coconut milk instead of cream?

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!!!!

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

I’m not certain since I’ve not tried it but this will help with tips (eg add cornflour) >>> Avoiding splitting

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

I tried this last night, it was so easy to make and tasted delicious! Will definitely make it again.

I’ve not tried to be sure but let me know pls if you do 🙂
I made this as a low carb dish so didn’t use yoghurt myself

Would low fat not yoghurt/Quark make a suitable substitute for the cream?

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.

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 ;).

I used smooth but either would be fine 🙂

Does the type of peanut butter matter? I.e crunchy or smooth?

This was a hit, nice and easy to make. I had mine with zoodles.

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.

Made this for the first time last night and found it very easy to make and was very nice to eat.

I don’t do that no as I’d rather people following low carb calculate their own eating regime 🙂
However I can tell you that I work it out to be around 5.8g of carbs per serve!

It looks really yum but it would be very helpful if you could include the nutritional value , love to see more,,,,
