    I love the recipe. I've adapted it slightly see below - and I reduce the amount of chicken and add some sweet potato

    I felt reverse speed 2.5 when cooking chicken was too much as mine disintegrate, however the flavour was beautiful and I have added it to my recipe collection to use again

    Really yummy flavours but a shame the chicken gets shredded. Will definately make again for the family. Thank you for the recipe.

    I should have read the comments before I made it! Next time will also reduce the speed to avoid shredded chicken. Was my first chicken dish in thermi (had it less than a week) so still learning all the tricks! Made naan as well. Great recipe- really enjoyed it. For next time, how much ginger do you use?

    Thank you for this recipe, I really enjoyed it! My 2yo asked for more! I left it on speed 1 as per comments below and had minimal shredding of chicken. You may want to add ginger to your ingredients list as it seems to be missing. Great flavour my waistline thanks you!

  • I ended up with shredded

    Submitted by mummamidi on 5. January 2015 - 22:13.

    I ended up with shredded chicken too, but it was still yummy. Only problem I had was ginger is not listed in the ingredients and I didnt look through the recipe when shopping.... so I made it without ginger.

    Submitted by Goubigredfireengine on 18. November 2014 - 12:39.

    This was a MASSIVE hit!! I had 6 adults for dinner and I made two batches....luckily I did cos the first one the chicken was shredded so the second batch I used speed 1 and mixed the two together. It was perfect! I also served it with Cauliflower rice instead of Basmati which made it even healthier! Thanks so much for posting this! Big Smile

  • Fantastic recipe!  Just made

    Submitted by dieter on 15. November 2014 - 19:36.

    Fantastic recipe!  Just made it tonight and was very impressed with the flavour and consistency despite the lack of "unhealthy" ingredients.  The chicken does get a bit hacked up, but I found this to be a bonus with two small kids, who sometimes find chewing a bit laborious.  Definite winner. Thanks for posting.

    Hence why it is called a "healthy" recipe... but thanks for the 2/5 anyway - great feedback!

  • Delicious and healthy recipe.

    Submitted by KittyHarry on 23. October 2014 - 09:14.

    Delicious and healthy recipe. Only problem I had was the chicken became so tender that it was pretty much shredded after the cooking time. It was still super tasty though and I will make again. Thanks for sharing.
