  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 4 cm fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • dash sesame oil
  • 450 g coconut cream, approx. 1 can
  • water
  • 400 g basmati rice, you can use less
  • sliced vegetables, see tip section for my suggestions
  • sesame seeds
  • cashew nuts, raw
  • 1 fresh chilli, about a 1 inch size piece (more if you like it hot)

  • 1 tsp Rapadura or Raw Sugar, optional
  • 1 tbsp chicken stock paste, can use vegetable stock instead

Recipe's preparation

    Method
  1. Place garlic and ginger into mixing bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 7.

    Scrape out of mixing bowl (using spatula) and mix with pre-cut chicken in a large bowl.

    Do not wash the mixing bowl.
  2. Add a sesame oil and tamari or soy sauce to bowl with chicken, mix, cover with cling wrap and set aside.
  3. Weigh coconut cream in the mixing bowl and add water up to 1100g.
  4. Place lid on mixing bowl and set simmering basket on top of lid.

    Reset scales to zero and weigh rice in basket.

    Remove basket and lid from top of mixng bowl and rinse rice in the basket under tap.

    Place basket into mixing bowl and lock lid into place Closed lid
  5. Put Varoma into position and spread chicken out evenly within the tray to enable holes for the steam to come through.

    Steam 20 min/Varoma temp/speed 2.
  6. While the chicken is steaming, prepare vegetables and place into Varoma as it heats up.

    Start chopping the firmer vegetables first and add them to the Varoma as soon as they are chopped to correct size. Leave softer vegetables (like capsicum, shallots, snow peas etc) until the end as they have a shorter cooking time.

    Make sure there are still holes visible for the steam to get through.
  7. Over the top of the vegetables, sprinkle sesame seeds, cashew nuts and more sesame oil & tamari / soy sauce.
  8. Once cooking time has finished remove the rice (place in ThermServer to keep warm).

    Stir the chicken and veges, breaking the chicken apart and again, making sure there are still holes unblocked for the steam to get through.

    Cook for further 5 - 10min/Varoma temp/speed 2 checking the chicken is cooked through.

    Once cooked, remove Varoma tray while you finish the sauce.

    (Tip: you can take off the ThermoServer lid with the rice init and sit the Varoma tray on top so they both stay warm)
  9. To the mixing bowl (with coconut cream etc still in there) add a couple of handfuls of cashews, chilli, coriander / parsley, 2 garlic cloves, 2cm piece of ginger, couple more tbsp of soy / tamari sauce, rapadura sugar and chicken stock paste.

    Blend 1 min/speed 9.

    No need to measure just use your instincts, blend, taste and then adjust if necessary!
  10. Serve immediately - rice, chicken and vegetables with cashews on top, and sauce drizzled over liberally.

Tip

The first 2 steps, marinating the chicken, can be done ahead of time for more flavour - but if you're doing it all at the last minute it still tastes good! My suggestion for the vegetables to use are:- thin wedges of onion- 2 celery sticks, leaves removed & thinly sliced- 2 carrots, thinly sliced- broccoli, cut into small pieces- green beans- chinese cabbage, thinly sliced- bok choy, thinly sliced- red / green capsicum, thinly sliced- snow peas- shallots, thinly sliced

    I thought the recipe was a bit hard to follow, I also found the end sauce very green like pesto sauce more than satay sauce, maybe I was doing something wrong. Don’t think I’ll make again sorry.
    Still eatable but nothing wow...

    This recipe was absolutely delicious however I had the liquid spill out over the top. I have read the recipe over and over again and can not work out what I did wrong. I did not exceed the 1100g liquid. Has any one had this happen with this recipe?

    Jo you never disappoint with your recipes! This is a taste sensation. The sauce makes it! I added more chicken, around 550g, & lots of veges which resulted in some chicken not cooking properly. Even after cooking for another 10mins, I had to then separate the chicken and the veges and put some uncooked chicken pieces on their own for 5 mins longer. All worth the effort though my family loved it and there was heaps for second plates and lunches. Added chopped coriander ourselves to the plates that wanted it.

    Chicken with cashew coconut sauce and steamed vegies.

    10/10 for this tasty healthy recipe.
    I increased chicken to 500g and omitted chilli and sugar.
    I Cooked brown rice, therefore cooking time was 35 minutes and increased liquid to 1250 ml.
    Vegies added last 15 minutes.

    Submitted by sallydz on 24. August 2017 - 22:44.

    Easy meal, used nearly 800g chicken and did veggies in extra varoma tray with chicken on the bottom tray, which worked well. Didn't need to cook it beyond the time stated in the recipe. Was nervous about adding that much extra ginger, garlic and soy to the sauce but will add next time with 3 chillies for better flavour.

    Submitted by Jabes on 29. September 2016 - 13:09.

    Super Tasty but both times I've cooked it, I've had to do at least an extra 7 minutes to know that my chicken is defnintely cooked.  I know it's sexy to cook everything in the thermo but next time I'll fry the chicken quickly during the 20 minute cook and add the vegetables at 10 minutes.  quickens the process and will probably be a little tastier.

    This was amazing!!

    I was a bit nervous because it looked a bit complicated with some exact measurements missing, and I'm definitely a beginner, but it was really easy to make and it tasted awesome.

    I put two servings straight into containers ready for lunches tomorrow and it looked just like something from an asian restaurant.  Will probably up the chilli content next time, maybe even sprinkle dried chilli flakes onto the chicken while it's cooking to give it a bit more kick.
