    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

  1. Place soy sauce, wine , ginger, star anise, cinnamon, sugar and water in bowl and cook for 10 mins / 100C / Gentle stir setting

    Remove parson's nose from chicken. Carefully place chicken in Bowl, bottom end down  over and round the blades.  Do not tear the skin.

    Place the spring onions into the cavity through the opening in the neck.

    Put the lid on the bowl and top up with water through the hole in the lid until the sauce just covers the chicken.  There should be about 2cm clearance from the top of the bowl.

    Place an inverted bowl or cup over the hole in the lid and leave the chicken in the TM bowl for a further 30 mins. Then remove the chicken from the bowl being careful not to tear the skin.

    When the chicken has cooled sufficiently, cut into pieces and season with the sesame oil and pepper. 


    Reserve a little stock to serve with the chicken.  Strain the remaining stock and keep in the fridge for future use.
