I made an apricot chicken version of this recipe today. It made 3 small serves.

600g chicken stock
300g chicken breast - cut into 3 flat slices
190g apricot nectar (3/4 cup)
1/4 - 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger to taste
1.5 tbspns FOSM
Carrot slices 2cm thick
Potatoes (whatever size you like roast potatoes but not too large)
sm Cauliflower florets
sm Broccoli florets
1.5 tsps. cornflour mixed with a little water to thicken.
S & P to taste

Place the stock into the TM bowl.
 
I folded the tenderloin piece back and cut away a bit more of the chicken flesh with it then sliced the remaining piece of fillet into 2 pieces horizontally.

Place the 3 pieces of chicken into an oval shaped casserole dish which will fit into the varoma dish and which has a lid that can be upturned to make another receptacle for the vegies.  Sprinkle with the FOSM, pour over the nectar and add the ginger.  Set aside.

Place the carrots then the potato into the steaming basket, insert into the TM bowl and cook 8 mins/speed 4/varoma temp.

Place the varoma with the chicken on top and cook for 5 mins/speed 4/varoma temp

Place the cauli & broccoli florets in the upturned lid of the casserole dish and cook a further 8 minutes/speed 4/varoma temp

Remove the potatoes from the steaming basket to score and brown in oil on the stove top and take the cauliflower florets only from the varoma and place in the steaming basket with the carrots, turn the chicken pieces and continue cooking the chicken and vegies for 14 mins/speed 4/varoma temp

Remove the chicken and vegies to the thermosaver whilst you brown the potatoes and make the sauce.  Remove all but 80g (1/3 cup) of the chicken steaming liquid from the bowl, add the apricot nectar from the casserole dish and cook for 1 min/100ospeed 4, pouring the slurry of cornflour in through the lid during this time.

That's unusual with the thermomix. The recipe sounds nice.

I made this dish tonight - wanted something tasty and easy, and remembered this old faithful 😊 I'm doing whole30 though at the moment so I can't have dairy or cornflour, I used a large handful of cashews and some tapioca flour instead. I whizzed up the cashews after throwing them in and it made the sauce yummy and creamy. I didn't fancy coconut cream in the sauce so thought the cashews would produce a similar result. It was so good!!! Going to use this version with lots of variations - love love love this recipe! Thankyou Baf!

This has been a favourite in our house for many years but I have never thought to do a sauce based on cashews. Great idea thanks Kimby83 :)
