      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!

    5. Add Chicken and beans (liquid level should be at "MAX" level inside TM bowl, if not, add a little extra water to reach "MAX" level) and cook 12min/100*/Counter-clockwise operation/speed 1. (If you find it's bubbling up too much, reduce temp to 95*)

    Place Apricot Chicken in pre warmed Thermo Server
  2. Rice

    2. Remove with hook on spatula and fluff with a fork before serving

Accessories you need



If possible, use Apricot halves in natural juice, drained.

If not possible and they are in syrup, drain, add water from tap then drain again to wash of the sugary syrup.

I've also made this dish adding chillies in step 2, and chopped zucchini at step 5 with the chicken & parsley, then check liquid level.

    Really delicious! I made this tonight. I added an extra carrot and a little extra chicken so I well and truly filled the bowl in the TM5, but all was good and it was very enjoyable. Thank you.
