Varoma steamed ginger and wine chicken - photo added

Varoma steamed chicken (ginger and garlic)



Very simple Asian dish. Especially good during a cold or recovering. I will recommend using ginger wine in place of shao xing wine.
For added nutrients. Can add 1/3 cup of goji berries to chicken. And added earthy flavor. A few pre soaked Chinese shiitake mushrooms sliced.

Ingredients
4 free range boneless thighs,
Cut into strips
Ginger 2 inches, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, smashed. Coarsely chopped
Saffron a tiny pinch
Broccoli florets (10 pcs)

Marinade
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp corn flour
Dash of white pepper
1 heap tsp chicken powder
1 tbsp light soya sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp shao xing wine or sherry

Place chicken in long bowl
Mix all marinate with chicken strips
Including ginger and garlic
Add saffron threads randomly
Add 1/2 cup water ( use kids cup)

Place in varoma (remove thin tray).
Add about 1 litre of water (half way mark)
Setting
Timer 20 mins
Temp Varoma
Speed 3

After 20 min. Stir chicken and break apart. As some will still be raw.
Ok to let cover water pour into chicken.

Add broccoli. Randomly spread.
Set timer extra 7 mins.

Thanks Serene, that looks so simple but very tasty.  I take it you could add some rice to the basket and be cooking that whilst the chicken is cooking above?

Yes yes. Can cook rice in basket while steaming. For me, I usually preset my rice cooker before heading off to work.
Also I cook more than what the thermomix allows.

Will post my pic in a minute!
