      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!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.  Toss chicken in flour and set aside.

  2. Grate parmesan cheese on speed 9 for 10 seconds.  Set aside.

  3. Chop garlic for 3 seconds on speed 7.  Add butter and cook for 3 minutes at 120 degrees (Varoma for TM31) on speed 1 with MC off. 

  4. Add chicken thighs and cook for 5 minutes at 120 degrees (Varoma for TM31) on REVERSE, speed 1 with MC off.

  5. Add port, water, cream, stock and wine.  Cook 30 minutes on Varoma temperature, REVERSE, speed 1.

  6. Carefully make slices in potatoes, without slicing all the way through.  Put into the Varoma bowl and put Varoma on top of mixing bowl in place of MC.  Work quickly - there should be 25 minutes remaining when you put the potatoes in.

  7. Prepare the rest of your vegetables and put on the Varoma tray.  There should be 20 minutes remaining when you put the vegetables on.  I used broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and bok choy - use any vegetables you wish.  

  8. Once cooking time has ended, put potatoes onto a baking tray and sprinkle with the grated parmesan.  Put into a hot oven to brown and crisp.   Put the other vegetables into a thermoserver to keep warm.

  9. While potatoes are browing, mix together 3 tablespoons of cornflour with enough water to make a slurry.  Set for another 5 minutes on Varoma, REVERSE, speed 1 and pour cornflour mixture in through the lid while mixing to thicken the sauce.  Serve chicken and sauce with your browned potatoes and vegetables, and enjoy!
