I found this recipe on the Thermomix Forum (thanks baf65!!) – it had so many positive comments I just had to try it.  There are so many ways you can change it and substitute items, it really is a versatile dish.  I have changed it a little bit, but the basics are still there.  Please try it – it is sure to become a family favourite.

 

Creamy Chicken with Vegetables

Ingredients

1000 g water

2 Tablespoons stock concentrate

500g peeled and chopped potatoes

1000g skinless chicken thigh cut into strips

500g mixed vegetables (I used carrot, zucchini, pumpkin, bok choy, broccoli) roughly chopped

120g cream cheese

50g white wine

30g cornflour

Method

Place water and stock concentrate into thermomix bowl

Place potatoes into steamer basket

Place chicken into Varoma Dish (spray dish with oil first to prevent chicken from sticking)

Cook at Varoma Temperature for 10 minutes at speed 4

Place hard vegetables into Varoma tray (soft vegetables such a bok choy can be added later)

Stir chicken to ensure even cooking

Cook at Varoma Temperature for 20 minutes at speed 4

Check potatoes, and if cooked, remove from steamer basket and keep warm.  Stir chicken once again, then add any more (soft) vegetables to Varoma tray then cook at Varoma temperature for 5 minutes at speed 4

Place chicken, vegetables and potato into a bowl to keep warm.

Reserve 400g of cooking liquid and place in thermomix bowl.  Add cream cheese, wine and flour then cook for 3 minutes at 100°C on speed 4

Pour sauce over chicken and vegetables and serve (with love!!)

Try sprinkling the chicken with herbs, dukkah or a flavoured salt before cooking
