  • Tried this for the first time

    Submitted by katestock on 4. October 2015 - 20:55.

    Tried this for the first time tonight. Followed the recipe to the letter. It worked out beautifully. Very clean meal, fresh and healthy. The breast chicken was moist and perfectly cooked (I worried 6 minutes wouldn't be enough). It does end up shredded but that's fine. The veggies were al dente. I will definitely make it again.

  • I'm sorry, but I did not like

    Submitted by Cissa83 on 5. May 2015 - 18:22.

    I'm sorry, but I did not like this at all. It was way too sour and bitter. I think it was the zest that over did it. The zest of 1 lemon is way too much IMO. Luckily I taste tested before adding the chicken, but had to quickly find a new sauce recipe to finish dinner.

    After reading your comment I weighed in the lemon juice in case I needed to adjust next time.  As it turned out, 40g was perfect. Also, I used dry sherry in place of the wine.

    Made this tonight but it came out very sour my kids wouldn't eat it. Might omit the Chinese wine and halve the lemon juice next time. Otherwise I think it would have been a yummy dish.

    This was really tasty, super quick and the veg I did steamed perfectly in the given time (zoodled carrots and sugar snap peas). A brilliant quick dinner made with mostly store cupboard ingredients. Highly recommend (hubby said he would have this anytime!)  Thank you Carole Novinc for sharing.

    Submitted by Jellyjojo on 20. March 2014 - 14:30.

    Great flavours. We love chilli so mixed very hot red chilli in soy sauce with 1 kaffir lime leaf. Just added that extra hit. I'm quite new with using the thermomix but my veg didnt steam that well. I ended up adding it to the mix in the thermomix on 80 degrees for 2 mins and it did the trick.  I used bok Choy, beans and brocoli

    Very tasty recipe thank you.  The sauce is very potent (could depend on the size and potency of your lemons) and we could have done with a few more vegies and meat but it's delicious.

    It served the two of us well with no left overs.

    Love So yummy I nearly exploded! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I served it with brown rice which soaked up the juices beautifully. The vegetables I used were sugar snap peas, red capsicum and the white part of the spring onions (sliced finely). I also added a shredded kaffir lime leaf. So amazingly yummy, five stars! Thank you Caroline!

  • There's no need for any

    Submitted by Caroline Novinc on 18. December 2012 - 19:43.

    There's no need for any water. There is enough liquid from the sauces/juice + the cooking time is relatively short. If you were to increase the recipe, you may also want increase the amount of sauce ingredients too.

    May I ask a silly question?  Do you put water in the TM jug for this recipe?  How does it steam the veggies without liquid?  I'd love to try this recipe but am too scared incase it wrecks my TM.  Any tips would be a great help as I'm a relatively new user.  Thanks.

    This was really yummy!  I used the butterfly just to be safe, and I needed to cook the chicken a few minutes longer than the recipe stated but no shredding.  I replaced the lemon zest and rind with Lemon Extract and left out the Oyster sauce and it was still delish, will def make again.

  • I cooked this tonight and it

    Submitted by blackwood on 12. November 2012 - 22:18.

    I cooked this tonight and it was a big success. It fed two adults and two toddlers. I used 500g of chicken thigh fillets and I also doubled the sauce (we like a lot of sauce in this house!)

    I cut the chicken into larger pieces (each thigh into about 3 or 4 pieces.

    I might try adding garlic next time, and possibly even try adding the garlic, ginger and oil first, saute that and then add the rest of the ingredients.

    Delicious! I will be making this again! Thanks!

    Mine too shredded and I had it in reverse speed soft! But, awesome flavour! Next time, I would put the veggies on when the sauce is cooking and add two teaspoons of cornflour mixed with a little water to the chicken bout 2 mins before the end of cooking time.

  • I have made this twice now

    Submitted by AndreaH on 23. July 2012 - 16:26.

    I have made this twice now and it's worked fine. I like my veggies cooked but with a bit of crunch (and I like to make heaps of veg) so I put them on for a little bit longer first to get them cooking before adding the chicken to the bowl. The chicken really doesn't need any longer than the recipe says otherwise it would probably overcook. The first time I made it I actually pulled the chicken out and kept it warm because I needed to cook the veg a bit longer. Maybe try slicing your chicken just a little bit thicker if it's shredding?

    Submitted by Caroline Novinc on 16. July 2012 - 21:26.

    Hi Maisthermomix, the only thing I can guess is that it was due to the longer cooking time. Perhaps you can try and cook it on slow speed next time (or even put the dial between slow speed and speed 1.) Can anyone else offer any suggestions here?

  • Hi Chubbychops - this recipe

    Submitted by Caroline Novinc on 11. July 2012 - 17:53.

    Hi Chubbychops - this recipe has been tested several times, so I don't know why you weren't successful. I actually made this for dinner tonight using chicken thighs (with carrots, sugar snap peas and mushrooms.) I garnished it with sesame seeds and coriander - it was great!  (NB: I used 60g lemon juice). Make sure you are using young, fresh ginger and ensure you select REVERSE SPEED to ensure the chicken isn't shredded - soft speed to 1 should be fine.

    TIP: I personally like my vegetables a little crisp, but you can add another minute or two to the cooking time if you like them well cooked.

    tmrc_emoticons.~ Not sure what happened to my dish. Followed the instructions and all I could taste was ginger not to mention that my meat litterally shredded. Perhaps putting chicken into varoma bowl may make a difference,or using thigh meat. Not sure if i will attempt again.

  • Hi Andrea - Glad you liked

    Submitted by Caroline Novinc on 4. July 2012 - 14:21.

    Hi Andrea - Glad you liked it! I use a citrus zester, which I casually run down the length of the lemon. It creates lovely long, thin strands of zest - I don't try and remove every last bit of zest from the lemon and definitely no white pith. Certainly, alter the amount of zest to suit your preferences - I personally love a good hit of citrus.

  • Would probably use slightly

    Submitted by AndreaH on 3. July 2012 - 21:22.

    Would probably use slightly less lemon rind next time (depends on the size of your lemons I guess) but this dish was so so tasty. Will definitely make this again. I put two layers of veggies in the varoma and steamed them for a few minutes before putting in the chicken to give them a head start.

    We had this tonight for dinner.  Used a mixture of carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms for veggies.  Added cashews and bean sprouts just prior to serving.  Was pretty delicious.  We doubled the recipe so that we would have lots for left-overs.  Great flavor!  tmrc_emoticons.;)
