Recipe's preparation

  1. Chop garlic and spring onion for 3 seconds, speed 6

  2. Add soy and oyster sauce and mix for 4 seconds, speed 4

  3. Add chicken pieces to marinade mixture and stir for 2 seconds, Counter-clockwise operation speed 3

  4. Leave chicken in TM bowl and put whole bowl and lid in fridge if possible to marinade for 1-2 hrs (you can skip this step if you are short on time, but it will taste nicer if you can leave it to marinade for a while)

  5. Tip chicken out of TM bowl onto top tray of Varoma and spread evenly, ensuring there are steam holes visible.  DON'T WASH THE TM BOWL!!

  6. ** Optional: Add vegetables of choice to bottom half of Varoma (you may want to do this with only 10 minutes remaining if you have soft vegetables, but harder vegetables like carrots etc can take the 20 minutes to steam. Use your steaming guide in the front of your EDC to decide when to add the vegetables)

  7. Insert basket into TM bowl. Weigh rice (between 200-400g depending on how much you need for your family. We use around 200g for 2 adults and 3 small children). Add 500g of water. To rinse rice, put the lid on and turn speed up to 4 for 5 seconds or so until the rice is all wet (look through the top while it is rinsing)

  8. Cook on Varoma temperature for 20 minutes, speed 2

  9. Use your spatula to remove basket of rice and tip into a Thermoserver, then add chicken and vegetables and serve.

  • Loved this meal! I had left

    Submitted by Nassofreo on 18. October 2016 - 11:12.

    Loved this meal! I had left over rice, so just followed the recipe for the rest. Once the chicken was sitting on the rice on our plates, I just spooned some of the cooking juice over it, which made for really flavoursome, tasty rice that totally complimented the chicken. Definitely on the cook again list!

    Highly recommend this very easy all in one meal! I followed some of the comments and used 1L water and cooked on varoma speed 4 (in my TM5) and the rice, chicken and veg were all cooked to perfection. I also left the chicken to marinade overnight and added cashews. Seriously delicious, thank you tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by elethermo2014 on 22. February 2016 - 19:20.

    Hello! I loved this recipe, nice and healthy and delicious! Thank you for sharing! I had thighs with bones, I removed the skin. Only had spring onions and eschalottes, I used 3 spring onions, 3 eshalottes and 2 garlic cloves. I only had soy sauce and fish sauce, used 60 grams of soy sauce and 20 grams of fish sauce. the rice cooked this way is absolutely delicious, its almost like an Asian style risotto! and so are the veggies in varoma and the chicken, the only thing the thighs took 30 minutes to cook through. Cheers!  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by Fisch79 on 14. January 2016 - 22:22.

    Love all-in-one meals. I actually prepped this the night before and left chicken marinade overnight. I didn't cook rice from scratch as I had leftovers but put it in to reheat at the 10 minute mark. Chicken was cooked beautifully and very moist. Portion size provided my family of 4 with leftovers. Great recipe and will make again.

  • Well after quickly reading

    Submitted by Carmar on 22. October 2015 - 19:27.

    Well after quickly reading comments and deciding to cook this at the last minute this is what I did. I cooked rice in the microwave in vegetable stock (1 tbsp) in 2 cups of water and one cup of rice. I used soy sauce, Hoi sin sauce and a dash of fish sauce as I had no oyster sauce. I used half a red onion as I had no spring onion. I had carrots cut in fingers and broccoli in the bottom tray and cooked the chicken on wet baking paper on top tray. It kept all the sauce with the chicken. I didn't leave to marinate, I cooked it straight away. Also put a little stock into the water for steaming the vegies and chicken. 20 mins was perfect for both my chicken pieces and veggies. Everyone loved this meal and I will be cooking it again. Will try adding a little honey next time as others suggested but loved it how it was. Thanks for this easy recipe. I bathed my kids while it was cooking. Win win.

    Lovely chicken but crunchy rice next time will increase amount of water to about 900g I think.

    The thing with cooking rice in a thermomix is water volume + speed + time. In my TM5 i use 1000g of water at speed 4 to cook 400g of medium grain rice for 18 minutes. Perfect every time with my satay chicken.

    As for using rice water as a sauce, maybe consider using wet, wrung out baking paper in the varoma for your chicken. This will still cook the chicken, but keep it with the marinade and stop the chicken from drying out.

    We're making this tonight with my alterations, will see how it goes.

    Love that this is an all-in-one dish. Same problem with the rice so I added more water but that then made the sauce very thin even after adding cornflour and kecap manis as suggested here. Found it quite bland so I'll spice it up more next time.

    Perfect quick meal to cook for family after work. Prepared marinade and chicken in the morning, cooked when I got home. I also did as others suggested and added cornflour and ketchup manis to left over water and cooked on Varoma temp for a few minutes, it made a lovely sauce. Everyone loved it and requested we have it again.

    Silly me didn't realise I'd lose most of my marinade back into the veggies & then water - so the chicken was a bit dry. Next time I'll make sure I make some sort of a sauce out of the leftovers! (And prepare myself for soy-veg!)

    Loved the flavour. This was my first time cooking rice in the Thermo and it was crunchy! Not sure what I did wrong and my chicken was slightly over cooked from trying to get the rice soft. Next time will put chicken in server and will add more water for rice as I think that might be it. I only had 250g thought and upped the water already 1/2 way through. Love the idea or making a sauce as I felt it needed to be moist  but still great recipe with beautiful flavours  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Made this for dinner tonight. Was a hit with the kids and I loved that it was all done at once.

    I put in 300g of rice, but only the 500g of water. Unfortunately alot of my rice was crunchy. So I think next time I will either just do 200g of rice, or up the water to 600g.
