    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Tip

Do not use more chicken or vegetables than suggested in recipe to avoid overloading your Thermomix!

This recipe is a lovely twist on your traditional Apricot Chicken. The carrots & capsicum are optional - feel free to add less or none at all if you want a more traditional Apricot Chicken. I plan to puree the leftovers for my 10 month old to enjoy tomorrow! 

Bon appetit tmrc_emoticons.-)

    Suzeeq: Thank you for your feedback! Taste preference can be such a personal thing I think!! I have made some highly rated recipes that I haven't enjoyed one bit too. But I am sorry this one let you down! Hopefully you can adapt it to your own preferences tmrc_emoticons.)

    Unfortunately we were so disappointed with this. I was really looking forward to dinner after reading all of the comments, however no one liked this at all. Barely any flavour, no apricot taste at all. If I made again I would use more apricot nectar and omit the water. But probably won’t make again 🙁

    Made this for dinner and it was a hit.  I added a small handful of chopped dried apricots at step number 5, and think I'll add even more next time. Will become a regular at our house!

    This recipe was officially for a TM31 actually but because I used it in the TM5 I labelled it as such ☺️ So everything should be the same for either

    Cooked this for dinner tonight, so easy and sure beats doing risotto the old fashioned way and combined two favourites of mine, did have to increase cooking time by 10 minutes,  but will be a regular here tmrc_emoticons.)
