Recipe's preparation

    Braised Chicken
  1. Add garlic, ginger, coriander and chilli (if using) to the bowl, speed 7 for 2 seconds

    Add chopped shallots and set to 100 degrees, speed 2 for 2 mins

    Add hoisin, tamari, fish sauce, water, honey, chinese five spice and set to 100 degrees for 1 minute.

    Add chicken and set to 100 degrees for 15 mins, Counter-clockwise operation, speed 1.

    While chicken is cooking, add vegetables to the Varoma tray.


    When finished cooking, place in thermoserver to keep warm. Don' t bother washing the bowl to cook the rice. Add the rice to the steaming basket in the TM bowl and add water (I usually add enough water to cover rice by 1cm).  Place varoma dish with vegetables on top the bowl and cook at Varoma temperature for 17 mins at speed 2. (If you prefer crunchier veg just cook vegetables for a few mins less than the rice.)


    To serve, place vegetables onto plate, add chicken on top, then spoon sauce over and garnish with chopped coriander and slices of chilli (if desired)

    This was really tastey.   I used Oyster Sauce as I didn't have hoisin and it was still delicious.  Can't wait to try it with all the ingredients.
