Slow-cooker Chicken Laksa Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup gets a laksa glow-up with this warming, spicy slow cooker recipe. With its tender shredded chicken, slurpy noodles and creamy curry broth, it’s a rich-tasting treat. And did I mention… there’s dumplings, too!


Slow-cooker Chicken Laksa Noodle Soup

10 minutes
6 hours 30 minutes

2 tbsp vegetable oil

3 tbsp Thai red curry paste

2 tbsp curry powder

8 cups chicken stock

2 tbsp fish sauce

1 tsp sugar

1 whole chicken

1 x 400ml can (13.5 fl oz) coconut cream

400g (14 oz) egg noodles (or your choice of noodle)

16 store-bought dumplings

6 boiled eggs, to serve

roughly chopped coriander (cilantro), to serve

bean shoots, to serve

red chilli, finely sliced, to serve

  • Step 1

    Heat the vegetable oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat. Add the curry paste and curry powder and cook, stirring, for a minute or until fragrant. Pour in 1 cup of the chicken stock and use your spoon to scrape up any bits from the bottom of the pan. Transfer to the bowl of a slow cooker

  • Step 2

    Stir in the remaining stock, fish sauce and sugar. Add the chicken and cook for 6 hours on low.

  • Step 3

    Transfer the cooked chicken to a tray and use forks to shred the meat. Set aside for later.

  • Step 4

    Pour the broth out of the slow cooker bowl and into a saucepan. Add the coconut cream and gently simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Step 5

    In the meantime, cook the noodles in boiling water and use tongs to transfer the noodles to serving bowls. Use the same water to cook the dumplings. Divide those among the serving bowls.

  • Step 6

    Add the shredded chicken to the bowls. Ladle over the soup. Top with eggs, coriander, bean shoots and fresh chilli.

Perfect Recipe & So Easy

Lovely recipe I am making it the 2nd time now. Chicken perfectly cooked and still intact (I was worried about lifting it up thinking it was going to fall apart) perfect for when kids are at school and pre-making to cook for midday and ready by the time we come back from my teens piano lesson! Maybe I could try using green curry paste next time for a change.
