Haha you have a good memory JD!! Yes, there have been a number of 'trial & errors' but I am happy I finally got there. For someone who wasn't a very confident cook pre-TMX, I never thought I would be converting my own recipes, so I am happy with myself :) Oh and also, of course it tastes a lot better than it did pre-TMX :D

You sound just like me in the beginning - I had trouble following a recipe let alone try and convert one of my favourites but life is full of suprises and isn't it a nice feeling when you start converting your own recipes.

Thanks for the recipe Bubbles - I'm going to try this on the weekend. 

Can I ask though, when you put the water in the Varoma, is it cold water or hot water ?

Hi Chrissa, Sorry I missed your post, not sure what happened :-\
I think I put hot water in, but I just kept stirring the chicken pieces every now and then to make sure they were cooking evenly and cut one up at the end to make sure it was cooked (hence my 10-15 min guide, I guess it depends on how big your chicken pieces are)
Sorry I'm a bit vague! And also sorry I'm a bit late with the reply! Anyway hope it worked out for you  :)

That's ok Bubbles. I had plenty on my to do list so I haven't made it yet. I used the chicken to make soup.
 
I'm hoping to give this a go tomorrow and I'll let you know how it goes

I like the sound of these.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
