members' comments

Thermomixer - I tried making this when it first appeared on the TMX Aust website but had problems with the drumsticks slipping so placed the butterfly in and it works better (for me) that way.

leo081977 - This was my first meal in the TMX and it was DIVINE, thank you for the recipe...though I used thighs instead of drums and it worked a treat (didn't take as long to cook either). Sauce was a touch runny though...any idea how to combat that???

ILB - You could add a little corn flour 5 minutes before it finishes cooking or take the MC off and put the little steaming basket on the top so it can evaporate a little...

Thermomixer - You could also try putting in the Thermoserver and serve it with pasta or rice as per the original recipe from Thermomix Australia site.  What NYmixer from London, who uses American drumsticks, also didn't say was that you can steam veg in the varoma at the same time.  By using varoma temp you will reduce the moisture.

leo081977 - Thanks for that idea, it was PERFECT!!!! I replaced the tin of tomatoes with 2 fresh tomatoes, buzzed them up, and threw them in together at the normal spot, didn't add the wine at all and added a HUGE amount of herbs at the start!!! Was much thicker and much yummier too. I added a touch of cornflour near the end too. I also used boneless thighs instead of drums.

Carrie - I made this with drumsticks, it was delicious. Not sure why the 5th step says to add water? There's no water in the ingredients list? I didn't add any and it certainly didn't need any, I thickened it with cornflour at the end as it was.


JD - I have removed the water, it's obviously not necessary.

Good idea...  I must have been lucky with the drumsticks. Probably American Drumsticks are better behaved LOLOL

Cheers NY Mixer - they are probably bigger than ours. LOLOL  :)

I find the butterfly helps with a few dishs in the Reverse mode to stop things getting caught.

Just wondering how the TMX performs in US considering they aren't distributed there and reports are that there are problems with voltage ???

Hi Thermomixer.... Actually I live in London, UK, although I am from Brooklyn. So my Thermomix works fine here.  :)

My sister's friend from New Jersey had a TM21(I never used it) and it didn't seem a problem. She cooked up some wonderful dishes. I will ask her for some recipes so I can post here.  8)

Marichu, I wish I had. I used to work a block down from there. I might make a visit at Christmas for some nice Tapas. If you want me to send some American Chicken Drumsticks via Fed Ex, just ask  ;D

Thanks for the tweaking details Leo - not keen on using drumsticks in the TMX myself and prefer thighs anyway.  I don't appear to have even printed this one out - don't understand why though as I do like cacciatore.
