Orange & Poppyseed Glazed Varoma Chicken



4 portion(s)


  • 60 g orange juice

  • 25 g balsamic vinegar
  • 25 g Dijon mustard

  • 1/2 tsp Poppyseeds


  • 400 g chicken tenderloins
  • 1000 g water
  • basmati rice, 200-400g

Recipe's preparation

  1. Add all ingredients (except poppyseeds) to TM bowl and cook for 10 minutes, Varoma, speed 2. 

  2. Scrape contents into a glass or metal bowl, add poppyseeds and allow to cool in the fridge or freezer for 15-20 minutes

  3. Orange & Poppyseed Varoma Glazed Chicken
  4. Put chicken tenderloins in a shallow dish and top with glaze and allow to marinade, covered in fridge, for as long as possible. You can skip the marinade waiting time if you don't have enough time, but it will taste better if you can.

  5. Fill TM bowl with 1L of hot water
    (no need to wash after the sauce)

    Add rinsed rice to basket and put in TM bowl
    Set chicken pieces on top varoma tray and place into position. Cook for 20 minutes, until cooked through, varoma temp, speed 2.

    Alternatively serve with steamed quinoa, or some cous cous

You could try serving this with my Orange & Apple Cous Cous recipe and some steamed vegetabes too. Steam vegetables of choice with the chicken, in the bottom half of your varoma at the same time. Carrots go great with this as they get some of the sticky glaze on them during the steaming.

You can use this glaze as a marinade for chicken drumsticks, cooked in the oven, or on salmon steamed in the varoma

    Thanks for sharing this delicious dinner! I didn't cook any rice and didn't see the part where I had to add boiling water to the TM. It turned out absolutely fine though. A great hit with the kids! I'll definitely make this again!

    This recipe was lovely. Tasted great even without letting the chicken sit in the glaze for a while.  I served it as suggested with carrots cooked in the Varoma and it all turned out really well. Thanks! tmrc_emoticons.)
