    We really enjoyed this recipe. I made this vegetarian by omitting the chicken. What do you do with the veggies left over from making the stock?

    Hi Fran, you can definitely do it without the rice.  It wil be a lighter soup, similar to a clear broth, just with the added egg and lemon flavouring.  Good luck. tmrc_emoticons.)

    Hi Helen,

    Thanks for your help. I think i will use thigh or breast as i will shred and put in soup afterwards. My husband had this soup once years ago and to this day he always goes on about it so glad i could find a thermomix recipe ( have never made it before) fingers crossed hehe

     

    Thanks!

    Submitted by Helen Vogiatzakis on 12. August 2015 - 14:06.

    Hi Fran, it really depends on whether you are going to use the chicken after to put into the dish or not.  Bones are always going to give you more flavour, but you can use either breast or thigh, if you want to shred at the end to add to the soup, or have for another meal the next day. tmrc_emoticons.)

    This was a great surprise Helen, thank you.I cooked it as per the recipe until the end. I just didn't put the veges back in, only the chicken that was in slithers when I took it off the bone. Will definitely be doing this one again!

  • Thanks, my family enjoyed

    Submitted by Fresh Mix on 23. April 2015 - 07:09.

    Thanks, my family enjoyed this soup. I modified the method a little - I put 100g aborio (only rice I had) into the jug with some chicken stock I already had. Then in basket potato, carrot and cubes of chicken breast. Cooked at Varoma, speed 2 for 16 min, stir chicken, and then cook another 2 minutes. Then as per recipe to make the frothy lemon/egg mix. In this way I was able to make the recipe quicker.

    Submitted by Helen Vogiatzakis on 6. May 2014 - 17:42.

    Hi Leigh, I'm so sorry.  My original recipe had all the veges and chicken in the steaming basket so that when it comes to taking them out, it would strain perfectly. This soup traditionally is a clear soup with only the rice in it.  The chicken and veges are there to add to the stock.  Somehow when the recipe was transferred here, it was omitted.  I will adjust the recipe now.

    I'm confused.  Are you supposed to put the chicken in the beginning?  I didn't see anything about being in a basket in the recipe.

    Submitted by Helen Vogiatzakis on 3. April 2014 - 23:32.

    Hi Mandy, I am so sorry that this has taken so long to respond to you.  I was only made aware of your comment/question today as the recipe was uploaded without my knowledge.  I'm thinking you may have resolved the issue but I would definitly say it would be the weight of the chiken.  Due to it sitting in the basket, and depending on which pieces of chicken you use, will make a difference to movement.  The thermomix shouldn't be moving at all.

    Please let me know if you require any other information re this recipe.  Again, apologies for the delay.

    Submitted by MandyF on 25. July 2013 - 10:56.

    I've made this 3 times & the thermomix moves around a lot - is this caused by the weight?  I've used drumsticks so could this be why this happens?

     

    thanks
