Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Add chicken to the slow cooker pot, pour sauce over chicken, stir to coat all the chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on Low for 4-5 hours until chicken is cooked through. Do not open the lid until 4 hours have passed, then check chicken. I added a diced green bell pepper as well.
  2. About 30 minutes before the chicken is done, cook your pasta, drain, place back in the pot you cooked them in and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent sticking. Photo shows cooked after 4 1/2 hours.
  3. To serve, plate up pasta, add a chicken thigh, and spoon some sauce over the chicken and pasta, feel free to sprinkle grated Parmesan on the top, I know I will. Serve with a vegetable for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

For chicken, use thighs bone in and with skin (this adds flavor) or you can use boneless and skinless, totally up to you. You can also use a combination of legs and thighs cut from quarters (most cost effective way, do yourself a favor, buy quarters, use the thighs, save the legs for another recipe like a BBQ or for other family members). For 8 quarters, you may spend about 150 Baht, sauce in a can is about 40 Baht, but if you use paste and make yourself, considerably lower cost. About 230 Baht or about $1.30 per person if serving 6, or  90 cents per serving is serving 8. Make the sauce yourself and you can reduce the cost of the sauce by well over half.

Variants: Add any or all of chopped mushrooms, chopped onions, chopped bell peppers, herbs when you add the sauce to the slow cooker.

Shortcut: Tomato Sauce.

Adapted from an internet recipe.

  1. I made this again yesterday, 18 Jun 2016, for my niece who is vising from another province, 7 thighs, 4 drumsticks, I added a diced onion, 2 cups of sliced fresh mushrooms, 3 cans of sauce. Plated on cooked penne pasta and topped with shredded Mozzarella cheese. Big hit!

  2. I made this yesterday and it is excellent. I used the thighs from 6 quarters (bone in, skin removed), cost was 116 Baht but the legs went into the freezer, so cost is about 60 Baht for the chicken. I made my own sauce from a can of tomato paste, water, olive oil, and herbs, cost was 17 Baht for the paste. The pasta I used is wide fettuccine (import from Italy), the pack has 6 servings in it, each serving is a spiraled bunch, cost was 40 Baht for the pack, I used 2 servings last night. I also added a diced bell pepper I had in the fridge. Total cost (even for the unused noodles as those will be gone in a few days as well), is 117 Baht for 6 servings, or about 60 cents per serving.

  3. I would definitely add a variant or two. The original recipe sounds nice, but rather bland. I like a bit of crunch in my food 🙂
