Chicken is an incredibly versatile meat that can virtually be matched with any sauce including peach, honey and for the very adventurous – caramel! Pull out your slowcooker and salivate over the aroma of sweet n’ sticky meat permeate through your home…


  • boneless chicken thighs or wings (600 grams )
  • 2 lemongrass stems, or 1 Tbsp lemongrass paste
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil (or canola oil for allergies)
  • 2 teaspoons ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup sherry or Chinese rice wine


Start making the caramel sauce in a small saucepan by heating oil, then ginger and garlic. Cook mixture for one minute before adding soy sauce and sugar. Cook for a further three minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved. Add the fish sauce and sherry then reduce the heat to low and simmer it to a syrup.

Place the chicken thighs in to the slowcooker and add the sauce and lemongrass, mixing until well coated. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours or until the chicken is cooked through consistently. Garnish with sesame seeds and Asian greens.

Please note that this recipe is not suitable for freezing. If you prefer a thicker syrup, put a little cornflour to your mixture before adding it to the chicken.
