  • Nice recipe.... I heeded the comment below and...

    Submitted by heidi_hi on 16. January 2017 - 20:59.

    Nice recipe.... I heeded the comment below and only added one tin of tomatoes and some tomato paste instead. I also blitzed a few veg (celery, carrot & zucchini) to make it healthier for my veg-phobic children. My chicken also took a lot longer to cook then stated even though it was in smallish chunks.

    Once cooked, I drained the liquid and shredded the chicken with a few spoons of the sauce as I was using it for enchiladas and didn't want them too wet.

    I tried to thicken the sauce for the enchiladas with some cornflour but it was still quite runny.

    I actually made red rice to go with.... and in hindsight should've just used some of the sauce/liquid for the rice. Which I will do next time as the chicken was tasty and its a good use for the extra liquid!

  • My kids loved the flavours!

    Submitted by Sandra on 1. August 2015 - 09:18.

    My kids loved the flavours! However, the chicken didn't cook at all after 20 mins in the basket so I put it into the tomato sauce in the bowl and it cooked in 10 mins. I added corn and kidney beans at the end and heated for a further five mins on reverse. I didn't add lime wedges as they weren't in the ingredients list. Couldn't see where to add the stock or coffee, though?

  • A nice recipe.  Was a little

    A nice recipe.  Was a little wet so would add less liquid.

     

    We also cooked the chicken in the bowl as the basket didn't hold a lot.  The chicken cooked quickly in the bowl.

  • lovely recipe! - I used one

    Submitted by Bennilou on 21. March 2015 - 20:44.

    lovely recipe! - I used one tin of tomatoes and 2-3 tablespoons of tomato paste (instead of two tins) and didn't seem to be too runny (and I used chicken mince so it cooked in the sauce)

    Yum!!  I used only one tin of tomatos and forgot the coffee, but was so delicious.  The sauce was a lot thicker than if I had used two. tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Great flavours! We reduced

    Submitted by Thermo Bel-lissimo on 13. May 2014 - 09:22.

    Great flavours! We reduced the ceyanne pepper as I don't like things too spicy. It was very runny but we put the thermomix basket back into a thermomix bowl and drained a lot of the extra liquid out (bonus of having a second bowl - but you could use a Thermoserver or any bowl to do this if you wanted to) and discared the left over liquid although we were pondering what we could save it for and use it with so not to waste it. Will definitely be having again!

  • Hayley, this is lovely! It

    Submitted by LannyD on 2. May 2014 - 14:43.

    Hayley, this is lovely! It was a bit runny for our soft tacos so we ate it out of bowls and used the tacos to mop up the juice. I think your lime wedges are missing off the ingredient list.  tmrc_emoticons.;)  Will definitely make again but may use fresh tomatoes or drain my tinned ones. Thanks for a lovely recipe.  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Made the recipe exactly

    Submitted by JadeMichelle on 5. January 2014 - 21:40.

    Made the recipe exactly except I used zucchini instead of capsicum. Added the optional baked beans in mild salsa. Lovely flavours but it was really runny and dripped out of our wraps and made it difficult to eat... maybe from the zucchini? Or is it supposed to be runny? Will serve with rice next time. Capsicum is missing from the ingredients list  tmrc_emoticons.;)
