      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

  1. Chop garlic in the TM bowl 3 sec / speed 7. Scrape sides of the bowl. Add 20g oil OR Nuttelex into TM bowl and melt 40 sec / 50oC / speed 4. Scrape sides of the bowl again and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 200oC. Season both sides of the chicken cutlets with paprika, salt and pepper.
  3. Melt the remaining 40g of oil OR Nuttelex on a fry pan. Sear chicken on each side and when seared, set aside in an oven proof tray.
  4. Once all the chicken has been seared and placed in an oven proof tray, carefully add the cooked butter from the frying pan into the TM bowl. You will hear a sizzling sound as the hot butter makes contact with the chopped garlic and butter melted earlier.
  5. Add stock, coconut cream, lemon juice and thyme to the TM bowl. Cook 3 mins / 100oC / speed 2.
  6. Add spinach to the TM bowl and gently mix through the sauce with your spatula. Cook sauce 10 mins / 80oC / Counter-clockwise operation / speed 2 / MC off.
  7. Pour the sauce over the chicken and into the oven proof tray, filling up to three quarters of the way.
  8. Place in the oven to roast for approximately 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately with accompaniments; I used steamed broccoli and cauliflower rice.

The sauce is absolutely delicious that you could drink it up. If you’re not a fan of the consistency, you can use a thickener of your choice.

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

    Why is this called vegan when it contains chicken? It's clearly not vegan.
