    TASTY AND SO EASY!! I used Aborio rice and doubled the recipe but used 600g thickened cream. I also used 9 x thigh pieces rather than fillets and added brocolini and brocoli that I had in the fridge. And rather than mix the paprika, salt and pepper in a bowl and press the pieces, I just sprinked it all over the chicken once it was in the pan. Fed a family of 5 adults with left overs. Huge hit in the house.

    Thanks for sharing 😊

    Yummy! The rice was perfect & fluffy & full of taste. I'm not a massive fan of lemon in savoury but it is perfect. I sealed the chicken (sprinkled it with paprika & salt &
    pepper whilst cooking) in the pan first & then put in oven uncovered for 43 mins and it was tender & golden! Winner winner chicken dinner, can't believe I actually made something so delicious!

    Submitted by Beliana on 24. February 2021 - 12:10.

    We found that two tablespoons of chicken stock paste was too much and didn't make it very nice to eat. In the original recipe it is 2 teaspoons so I will try it again with that.

    I've only had my thermomix 6 months but I absolutely adore it. One of my favourite recipes is Lala's lemon chicken. Unfortunately, with a baby I can be very time poor so I don't get around to making it. Im so glad I stumbled across this easy version! It tastes just as good, the rice cooked in the dish is a fantastic addition, and it's so simple to make! Highly recommend

    Thanks for this simplier recipe. This is so much easier and not so fiddly! My family loves the original recipe and this is just as good. The only thing I did differently was I still pan fried the chicken (with paprika, salt and pepper) whilst the sauce was cooking in the TMX.

    Submitted by surfergal on 2. November 2020 - 21:12.

    This was fantastic I did tweek it a little only to suit what I had available!

    I used tmx vege stock instead of chicken stock paste
    I used chicken breast trimmed and cut in half length ways
    two lemons juiced including zest of one
    aborio rice on the bottom with cherry tomatoes and green beans
    300 ml of cream instead of 200 ml as I wanted to use the whole container.

    it really was a lovely dish and will become a regular here in this house. Thank you for sharing !

    Submitted by ronellem on 19. July 2020 - 16:02.

    Lala's butter creamy chicken recipe has become one of my favourites.
    We preferred Arborio rice and used 550 g strips of thigh. Plenty for two people.
    Maybe will halve the butter next time, but it was very satisfying for a cold winter's day!

    Big Smile Enjoyed this simpler version very much. It makes it far easier to get prepared and into the oven, so I can turn my attention back to other things. Thanks for the simpler version - it's bumped this family favourite dish back up the list again!
