Total Time 3 hours 15 minutes


  • 1kg Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Jar Ayam Brand Plum Sauce 210ml
  • 2 Tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • Cornflour for coating chicken
  • Oil for browning coated chicken


  • Combine plum sauce, hoisin sauce, light soy sauce and minced garlic in a bowl and set aside
  • Cut chicken breasts in half, then into approx 2 to 2.5cm chunks.
  • Coat chicken in cornflour
  • Add oil to wok or pan and brown coated chicken in batches
  • Place chicken into slow cooker
  • Pour sauce over chicken and stir to coat chicken pieces.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 2-3 hours
  • Serve with your choice of boiled rice, fried rice and/or vegetables
  • NOTE: This recipe does NOT produce a lot of juice, so I'd say do not overcook or else there is a risk the sauce will stick to bowl.
  • The plum flavour is tangier than the honey version, but still has a sweetness to it. I used Ayam brand sauce that was 210ml net, but any plum sauce can be substituted.
  • The final dish does not yield much sauce as the chicken is coated but not soaked. If you like your dishes saucier I'd suggest adding more plum sauce and/or some water to yield more juice.
  • Adapted from the Sticky Honey Chicken recipe submitted by Shaya. Thanks for the idea Shaya!

  1. This recipe was bomb! Kinda just eyeballed the measurements and used wings instead of chicken breast, but damn, so good. Recommend using chili flakes in the sauce for a bit of a kick. ?
