Recipe's preparation

  1.  

    1. Rinse the chicken cavity and then pat dry.


    2.  Pierce the skin several times.

    3.  Place the onion pieces, celery stick & lemon pieces in the cavity.

    4. Gently stretch the wings & drumsticks away from the body to loosen joints.

    5. Tie the drumsticks together with a rubber band and place the bird into the Varoma.

    6. In the TM bowl, combine the honey, soy sauce & garlic and mix on speed 7 for 5 secs.  

    7. Using a pastry brush, baste the chicken generously with sauce.
    Don't forget to do the sides and leg/wing joints :)
    If any sauce left pour on top of chicken.

    8. Add water to TM bowl and cook on Varoma, speed 2, 60mins.

    9. Remove chicken from Varoma & place on a baking tray and place into a hot oven (180 degrees) for 10mins. This is to give your chicken a "golden" finish. Should you not wish to do this you could just place your chicken into your thermoserver and let it sit for the 10mins.


    ** We serve this with oven roasted vegetables however it's also nice to shred to put into a salad or as filling for sandwiches :)

    I made this last night, it was so quick and easy and OMG the most tender and juicy chciken was the fabulous result. Thank you so much. Will never do roast chicken in the oven again. It was a hit with the whole family even the fussy 8yo that doesn't eat much at all loved it.

    After reading all the great reviews for this dish I decided to give it a whirl tonight. It's been an hour since dinner and hubby is still raving about how awesome it was.

    I made gravy with 1ltr of the liquid. Added flour and vegetable stock. It was also awesome.

    Thanks for a great recipe 😊

    Submitted by TeaSea on 4. February 2017 - 23:13.

    Turns out perfectly every time.

    I added veges in the Varoma at the hallfway mark and browned everything off in the oven. Steamed beans at the same time. Reduced some of the steaming liquid on the hot plate and added flour and seasoning to make gravy. Will use the remaining liquid to flavour another meal at another time.

    The meat is sooooo juicy, tender and fall off and he bone perfect. Thinking of trying other meats with this method.

    Can you please tell me if you think it would work if I made extra sauce and continued to baste it every now and then through the cooking process?

    Yummy! delicious, simple and plenty left over for seconds. First round we had chicken (after cooking, roasted in the oven for 15 min) with rice, then the next day we had it more like an asian inspired soup, with a few steamed bok choy. I used just over 1 ltr of water instead of 1.5 ltr, perfect amount, thankyou

    Submitted by kemmec on 29. December 2015 - 17:51.

    My brother suggested that we cook the chicken as per this recipe, then using the remaining liquid to steam rice. That way all of the juices from the chicken, the marinade and the stuffing are reflected in the rice. Also steamed Broccoli & green beans at the same time.

    It was an excellent combination.

    Absolutely delicious!! My chicken weighed 1.5kg and it cooked perfectly in 60 mins, then I put it in the oven for approx 10 mins at 175 degrees to crisp up. I made gravy with the juices from the TM jug. The chicken was so so moist and tasty. Will never roast a chicken any other way again!!

    Best Roast Chicken we have ever had.

    Juciy with the right amout of crispyness (we had the chicken in the oven for 30 minutes however).

    This will be our go to recipe for Roast Chicken.

    Also made a Gravy with the leftover water (poured 1/2 out) and added 2 Tbsp of Vegetable Stock and Plain Flour to thicken.

  • Moist and tasty - Mr 8

    Submitted by bizling on 8. February 2015 - 18:53.

    Moist and tasty - Mr 8 declared it "best chicken ever!" (I used a size 16 chicken and it was cooked after 60min)

    While the chicken was browning in the oven I made gravy by pouring some of the juices from the jug into a pan on the stove, brought it to the boil, added some cornflour (about a tablespoon) and a dribble of parisian browning essence and reduced it to a gravy consistency while stirring regularly - yum! I used the remaining juices in the jug to steam some veggies in the varoma.

    Made this for family Xmas lunch today. It was fantastic! All the guests were non - thermo owners (even a couple of sceptics) and they were all amazed! No oil means it is not greasy (and bonus of being far healthier than standard roast chook). Plus it was so moist. Delicious!

    tmrc_emoticons.) love this, tis so easy.  I have used garlic with ketchup manis instead of the honey and soy as I'm lazy. Woks well and no sticky. Honey spoon.  I also leave in oven for closer to 20 mins while I whip up some mash tatties over which steam some green beans and carrots in the varoma. Easy enough for midweek tea dinner whilst the kids do homework. I think mine looks better than the picture, so don't be put off by the picture on the front.  Enjoy

    thanks for the recipe.

    This was so easy and the chicken was moist.  I had a 2kg chicken, it just fits, as I wanted left overs for lunch next day and to make chicken and sweet corn soup.  Cooked it for about 1hr 15mins in thermo and then 15mins in oven to crisp skin and finish off.  Also threw a few spuds and carrots in the steamer for the last 15mins and finished them in oven too.

    Submitted by PennyM on 28. January 2013 - 10:04.

    Hi tmrc_emoticons.) I used a 1kg chicken but this cooking time would work for up to 1.2-1.5kg I would think. Best to just pierce the skin when you think it's finished and if the liquid runs clear it should be ready to go tmrc_emoticons.) Enjoy!

  • What size chicken did you

    Submitted by Cabsavs_mum on 28. January 2013 - 01:22.

    What size chicken did you use? I am guessing that different sized chickens would have different cooking times. I am looking forward to trying this. Thank you.
