This is an easy way for a flavoursome chicken and veg dinner that's healthy, with skinless chicken breast, but not dried out or with the chicken breaking up.

Frozen veggies can also be added to the sauce at step 7, peas, beans and corn. Sliced olives can also go in the sauce.

It's also delicious on a bed of mashed potato, make it first and keep warm in a Thermo Server bowl

    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!

    Hello2jen: Hi, I'm so happy that you like this recipe. It is so versatile. I also add frozen peas and corn to it now to add to the vegetable content. I'm lucky that we all love veggies. Thanks for the great rating and comments. Cheers

    Really tasty and fresh. Love how many vegetables are in it. I would chop some carrot and zucchini and put with the pumpkin. Is like a stew so would be good served with pasta, rice, mashed potato or crusty bread. We had chilli in it which gave it a good kick!
