  • The first time I made this I

    The first time I made this I made the mistake of throwing away the juices from the parcels so the meal was quite bland and dry.  The second time I around, i kept the juices and also made extra sauce to drizzle on top of the chicken.  Loved it and will definitely make this again.

  • Yum, 5 stars based on sauce

    Yum, 5 stars based on sauce alone. I made extra sauce and marinaded the chicken for a few hours. I'll cook the chicken parcels and before serving I'll cook the rest of the sauce in the TMX. Rice, vegetables and chicken parcels....now I really feel like I'm making use of my new TMX. Followed by a mango and coconut sorbet with some of the left over coconut cream. Only question is ...do I drizzle it with white rum?

  • Made this last night.  Loved

    Made this last night.  Loved the flavous though will increase the chilli next time. We didn't have paste left over but rather made sure we used it all in the parcels.  Would like to work out a way of cooking it with even more sauce so that is soaks over the rice when served.  May try next time cooking the chicken on reverse in the bowl with twice the sauce, store in the thermo bowl and then make the rice.  Our 9 year old daughter also loved it.

  • This recipe was delicious!

    This recipe was delicious! The instructions were excellent and it fed my family of four (adults) perfectly. However, there was a lot of the spice paste left over and it weemed a shame to wate - any ideas what to do with it??
