Recipe's preparation

    Make the stuffing:
  1. Peel garlic 4 seconds/Reverse Blade Direction/Speed 4 to 5. Discard skins.

    1. Add remaining ingredients and Turbo Pulse for 1 second.


    That’s it!

  2. Stuff the chicken breast:
  3. Place each chicken breast loosely between two sheets of cling film/plastic wrap. Pound with a rolling pin or an empty wine bottle until it’s about a half centimetre/quarter inch thick. Spread with stuffing; season with salt and pepper.

  4. Now roll up the chicken breast around the stuffing, and roll it up in a piece of cling film that is about 6 inches longer than your finished roll. Grab the ends and push the roll away from you on the work surface several times. This will tighten up the roll into a nice sausage shape. Tie off the ends.

  5. Steam your chicken breast rolls, starch and vegetables:
  6. Place your roll or rolls in the Varoma (for one or two, place them on the bottom; for three or more place them on the Varoma tray but don’t overcrowd; make sure you can see some holes for the steam to come through) and add 1000 g of water to the Thermomix bowl. Steam on Varoma setting/30 minutes/Speed 2 or until the internal temperature reaches 75° C. During this time, prepare your vegetables and starch for steaming by cutting into uniformly-sized pieces. Place rice or potatoes in internal steamer basket. If making rice, rinse abundantly. After 15 to 20 minutes of steaming, pause your Thermomix, very carefully remove the Varoma and lid and insert your internal steamer basket/simmering basket (your Thermomix spatula has a handy hook to prevent you from steaming your hands while you do this!), pop the lid back on, add your vegetables to the Varoma, put the lid back on and resume steaming.  Rice and potatoes need a good 12 to 15 minutes steaming time so be sure to plan for this.

  7. At the end of the steaming time, carefully remove the Varoma lid and place it under the Varoma itself to catch the drips and protect your work top – and yourself! Remove the chicken breast rolls (don’t unwrap them yet!) and set them on a cutting board to rest for at least 5 minutes. If your veg need more time, replace the Varoma lid and leave them happily sitting over the still-steaming water in the TM bowl while your chicken rolls rest. During this resting time you could also prepare a sauce in your Thermomix, as below.

  8. Carefully unwrap each roll, collecting the cooking juices to make a sauce if you wish. Reduce the juices in your Thermomix on Varoma setting with the Measuring Cup off, then stir in yoghurt, cream or butter according to your flavour combination. Slice your rolls on the bias and arrange on a warmed plate with your steamed vegetables and any other garnish and sauce you desire.

  9. Try this Quick Coco-curry Sauce
  10. Ingredients

    1 tbsp green Thai curry paste (or more to taste)

    1 x 400g tin of coconut milk


    Method

    1. Add ingredients to TM bowl. Cook 90 degrees C/10 minutes/Speed 1 or until hot and smooth. Pour out and serve!


    Bon appétit !

    Do you keep the chicken rolled up in the plastic wrap when you cook them in the varoma?

    So pleased you liked this all-in-one Varoma meal, BJ! I can't get along without the Varoma and since we love chicken in our house I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. There are endless variations to the chicken ballotin, just use whatever you find in your fridge or whatever tickles your fancy! And how good is that, you can prepare fat-free meals in Thermomix. Woo hoo!

    Tried tonight for two - halved ingredients. Delicious. Would reduce cooking time for chicken by 10m next time with medium sized breast. Thanks so much for sharing. tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Hi Jade Lee! Good on you for

    Submitted by Madame Thermomix on 3. September 2014 - 17:53.

    Hi Jade Lee! Good on you for cooking your chicken a little longer! As you say, perhaps you didn't flatten it quite enough before rolling, or perhaps it was a bigger piece than I used. Breasts come in all sizes and shapes LOL and require different cooking times. You expertly rose to the situation! I hope you enjoyed your meal.

  • The stuffing was pretty good.

    The stuffing was pretty good. I had to cook my chicken for an extra 10 minutes or it was still raw on the inside.... Maybe I didn't flatten it enough before I rolled it.
