Less water definitely, but it was really yummy, the kids even ate it. I substituted broc for zucchini and it was great

thanks for the recipe

Nice recipe, but needs adjusting as it was way to sweet for me.

Simple steps to follow and yummy results... As mentioned previously, I would reduce the soy sauce to 100g otherwise very salty and reduce honey to 100g otherwise very sweet... would use half the amount of water too so it wasn't so runny! Chicken diced chunky worked fine and didn't shred much, also used the reverse function. Thanks for recipe Smile

Yummy def a winner here even with the kids Smile Laughing out loud

MC means measuring cup- the small plastic cup that goes in the centre of the lid.  The instruction means remove the measuring cup and put the steamer basket on the lid instead.  This will allow for some evaporation while the steamer basket on top will stop any bits splashing out.  It does take a while to get used to all the lingo!

Ok please excuse the newbie......

my hubby made this whilst I was at work. He didn't know what step 6 meant or MC ( main course ?????) meant.  I am presuming the rice is to be poked in the basket ? So add water or in what liquid ?

Can someone clarify step 6 please. He cooked our rice in the rice cooker.

For those of you having trouble with the chicken shredding it may be due to dicing it too small in the beginning. I generally dice it quite large (about 4cm x 4cm). I know when I dice it smaller it is a more shredded consitancy after cooking but the larger diced way doesn't have that problem. You could probably try it with the butterfly as well, that may help but I'm not sure.

Personally I like it either way, my kids much prefer it shredded so if it's just myself and them I will dice it small, if it's for other people I will dice it large. All tastes the same in the end.

Oh and if you want the sauce thicker you can not add the water, has a more syrupy sauce. (One of those happy accidents on busy night LOL) If I want to use noodles instead of rice I omit the water and it works quite well.

I also have found as long as you keep the ratio's the same  you can put alot less honey & soy in, I like the strong flavours and having lots of sauce so prefer to put the full amount in.

Tasty - but I definitely used the reverse function counter-clockwise operation and still ended up with shredded chicken at the end (not cool).  Next time, I'll put the chicken in the Varoma and just mix it through at the end.

Cooked this tonight for the kids (5 and 3 year old). They loved it! I reduced the soy sauce to 100g, honey to 120g and water to 150g, turned out delicious and made the house smell scrumptious!! I also added zucchini in with the onion and diced it up small so the kids wouldn't see it! Sneaky!! Highly recommend and will cook again! Thanks!

:)I cooked this last night and my partner and i enjoyed it. I took the advice of others and halved the quantities of water, soy and honey. I also used chicken thighs - which are tastier   Those who had problems with the chicken being Schreded, need to make sure the blades are set to use the REVERSE mode. There is an icon in the recipe method that depicts this. An easy mistake to make - yep speaking from experience.

tasted great, kids loved it but vegies and chicken were all sherreded....? great flavour Smile

I tried this last night, all of my chicken has shredded though and I followed the directions - where did I go wrong or is it supposed to be like this?

Besides that, it tasted good.

Yummy  made this today, will be adding this to my recipe collection. 

 

Yum will add this one to my favorites

Great flavour!

My kids loved it (phew). I used half the honey though as we don't like things that sweet. Will make this again.

Is the chicken supposed to be so 'shredded', I'm new to TMX cooking and am not sure if I'm doing something wrong.

Thanks for the recipe.

Very yummy and easy to make, a big hit with my 12 month old.  The chicken was basically shredded but I think that added to it.

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! YUM YUM YUM! Tick of approval from both my girls and my husband! Empty bowls all around, and that is so rare in our family, especially with our four year old! And very health concscious too (I am doing Weight Watchers). Will definitely be making this a family favourite!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am a new TM owner and this definitely makes my purchase so worthwhile!

Delicious! Thanks  Smile

I made this one tonight.  I used a bit more chicken because I have a lot of mouths to feed but apart from that everything according to instructions.  I did cook it a little bit longer because of the extra chcicken.

I think the sauce was a bit 'runnier' than I am used to, but that didn't matter.

It was a really great Asian taste and well worth cooking.

Hey this had real taste compared to the chicken tonight jar.

Good bye chicken tonight, hello Jan (my TMX).

This one is yum...I have made it a few times, I use less soy sauce though  - as the recipe calls for heaps!

I am goin to try this tonight.

Smile  Very easy and tasted great -

I didn't have any fresh veg - so I used a large serving bag of microwave steamed veg. Heated them up and stirred them in at the end.

Hi Michellea & Rosie7,
Nothing goes in the steamer basket, it is to replace the MC (so put the basket on top with nothing in it). It means the sauce won't spit, but it will be able to let off steam, opposed to with the MC on. 

Hi - as per Rosie7's question, could you please specify what goes in the Steamer Basket? Is this referring to the 4 vegetables (which means they do not go in the TM bowl)? Would really love to try this for dinner tomorrow... Please help  Smile

Excuse my ignorance but I am new to this and I really want to try this recipe.  But can you tell me what Step 6 means?  What is in the Steamer Basket?

Smile Everyone loved it!! I made a gluten free version and it was amazing
