      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!

The sauce is absolutely delicious that you could drink it up. Adding the rice to the base of the baking dish soaks up alot of the sauce and makes it a full meal.

You can add more vegies if you like to make it a full meal with veg!!

The size of your baking dish will determine the amount of chicken you can cook and as such, the number of servings.

    This was lovely I added extra juice used 2 lemons.
    I also added broccoli and omitted the parmesan cheese as I did have any and used a little grated cheese instead. 😋😋😋
