    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. 1) Add chicken thighs to the TM bowl and mince 15sec/sp6. Set aside.

    2) Add garlic cloves and onion to the TM bowl and chop 5 sec/sp5.

    3) Add olive oil then saute for 5 min/120°/sp1.

    4) Add roughly chopped carrot, zucchini and broccoli and chop 10 sec/sp5.

    5) Return chicken to TM bowl, add egg and breadcrumbs mix 20 sec/Counter-clockwise operation/sp5.

    6) Mixture will be very sticky but mould into small balls around the size of a 20c piece and press slightly so its flat. Coat in extra breadcrumbs.

    7) Pan fry on a medium heat with a small amount of oil until cooked through.

Tip

These can be frozen after step 6 has been completed and then can be cooked from frozen. I just freeze in a container and have a sheet of baking paper between the layers so I can take out what I need without defrosting the whole lot. You can also use any nut meal instead of breadcrumbs to make gluten free.

    Very delicious and simple to make. We didn't have zuchinni so we added herbs (parsley, sage and dill) and it tasted so yummy!! We have also added one tsp vege stock paste and panko breadcrumb. My 9 months old can't stop eating them.

    Great recipe, thanks! I didnt have zucchini, didnt matter. Used panko crumbs, deliciously crunchy! Just added a teaspoon of veg stock paste for flavour as well. And every one of us enjoyed them from 18mths to 5 yrs, plus mum and dad.

    Has anyone tried baking these? I prefer not to pan fry if i can avoid it

    I'd like to know too, this might be a new favourite, but I really don't have a lot of time for frying. My kitchen is not great for it and my frypans are really bad.
