  • 9 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp veg oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • juice and zest of half a lime
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • fresh coriander and lime juice to serve


  • Mix all the ingredients except the chicken breasts together in a bowl.
  • Oil the slow cooker pot lightly to prevent sticking.
  • Place three chicken breasts in the pot and the other ingredients on top, mix to cover.

Serve with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and chopped fresh coriander. Delicious with coconut rice (for a quick version of this, use a tin of coconut milk, plus a little water, to cook your rice).
