A quick and easy chicken recipe.

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 3 hrs
  • 15 mins

    3 hrs

    3 hrs 15 mins

  • Yields: Easily yields 6-8 servings


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


1Combine plum sauce, hoisin sauce, light soy sauce and minced garlic in a bowl and set aside

2Cut chicken breasts in half, then into approx 2 to 2.5cm chunks.

3Coat chicken in cornflour

4Add oil to wok or pan and brown coated chicken in batches

5Place chicken into slow cooker

6Pour sauce over chicken and stir to coat chicken pieces.

7Cover and cook on LOW for 2-3 hours

8Serve with your choice of boiled rice, fried rice and/or vegetables

9NOTE: 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.

10The 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.

11The 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.

12Adapted from the Sticky Honey Chicken recipe submitted by Shaya. Thanks for the idea Shaya!

Miss 7 tastes this & loudly exclaims in all her 7’ness …

“This chicken is LITERALLY amazing”

Always just a lid unless it specifies with a tea towel 🙂

When it says cover…does that mean with a tea towel under the lid or just the lid?

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. 😉
