      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!

Recipe's preparation

    Prepare Chicken
  1. 1. Gently wash out the chicken cavity with water and pat dry with paper towel. Place in varoma and set aside.

    2. Place butter, honey and juice in thermomix. 3 min, 90 degrees, speed 2.

    3. Empty into a bowl and set aside. 

  2. Prepare Stuffing
  3. 1. Place all stuffing ingredients into the thermomix bowl. Turbo pulse until all ingredients have minced together. I usually find this takes about 6 pulses.


  4. Putting It All Together
  5. 1. Place stuffing inside the chicken. If you are not using the oven afterwards to crisp up the skin brush on the honey mixture you set aside earlier.

    2. Put 1.5L of water into the thermomix bowl. Place Varoma with chicken in situe into place.

    3. 70 min, VAROMA, Speed 2 ( time may vary depending on chicken size, extend time if chicken is not cooked through).

    4. Remove chicken and place into baking dish. Brush on thehoney mixture from earlier. Place into a pre-heated oven of 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until the skin is crispy and brown. This step can of course be missed if you wish to only use the thermomix. 

    5. Remove from oven, slice up and serve tmrc_emoticons.)

    i didn't bother crisping in the oven (didn't want to dirty a pan) and it was tender and juicy.

    i was out of macadamia nuts so used cashews instead.
