Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 5 image
    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    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!

    mich99: can I ask how you doubled it? Did you cook the chicken separately? I have tried to double the recipe but it never works quite right for me.

    Made double of all quantities (because we like a lot of sauce!), and used about 700g chicken in total.

    Finished taste was a little bland... but after adding about 30g rock sugar at the end it was superb 😁.

    Kids loved it so will definitely make again!

    Tasty, but chicken was shredded even though I reduced the speed

    Absolutely delicious 😋 loved by the whole family. Will have to make a double batch next time or add potatoes to make it go further.

    This is an absolute fav of mine!

    Doesn't really taste like butter chicken, but it was still delicious. I ommited the cinnamon.

    I love this recipe! sooo yummy. I'm vego so I followed all instructions except adding the chicken and then used coconut milk, eggplant and mushrooms in the last 10 minutes. Delicious!

    Have cooked this a few times now, and although we love the flavour, the chicken is shredded. Follow the instructions to the letter, so just wondering if anyone else has this problem and if so, how do you get the chicken to stay in chunks?
