Made this tonight, veges a bit thin on the ground so had sweet potato, beans, peas and corn. So yummy, even the offspring were looking for seconds. Fantastic the way TM can get such great flavour from such simple ingredients. Call me backward but this was the first time I'd used the Varoma. Soo easy!! ;D ;D ;D

We had this on the weekend...very nice. We had some left over sauce and used that on pasta the following night, also tasted really nice.

It is a greast recipe isn't it? I think that was my first all in one recipe and made me brave enough to experiment a bit.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I finally got around to trying this - not sure what took me so long after all the good reviews.  Delicious.  Cooked with cauliflower and zucchini.  The potatoes were so creamy and had a beautiful seasoned flavour from the stock.

Would probably work really well for fish too.  Thanks Baf!

Had this for dinner tonight. Yumo!!
Chopped some garlic and onion before putting the stock in. Added a splash of Maggie Beer Verjuice too.
Dusted the chookun in some random pantry seasoning.... honestly.. have no idea what it was, got it bulk from DFIL ages ago..... full tray of broc, cauli, carrots on the top.
20minutes later a bludi lovely dinner. Added some cream cheese and flour at the end as suggested too.
Heaps of sauce left for tomorrows homemade pasta!!!
Thanks baf65 for a fantastic recipe. SO EASY.

I can't believe how long it has taken me to try this!!! So easy and delish - it will be a weekly! ;) I diced the chicken (1kg) and had potato, carrots, zucchini, celery, red capsicum. I added garlic, honey and mustard to sauce (thanks that was such a good idea) added 200g of rice pasta shells to the sauce for 15min. Combined the lot to feed 5 adults, 2 big kids and 1 littlee (I pretty much had double mixture) Thanks heaps!  :-* :-* Such a good recipe - you could make changes to it for every day of the week and the family would think they were eating a new dish.  ;)

Nay-Nay, did the starch from the pasta thicken the sauce instead of adding flour?  Love the idea of some pasta - I guess that was instead of potato in the basket.

It did thicken the sauce so I did not need the flour. But I did have to do it in 2 parts so did take longer - Cooked potatoes and chicken first then pasta and steam vegies.  ;)

I missed the garlic, honey and mustard additions. Yummo!  Will have to have it again soon with those.  :)

Very true - would impress that it is not limited in amounts that you can serve, if you use your imagination
