I made this the other night and it was loved by everyone.  Did have to triple it so cooked the meat first in 2 layers then the veges in 2 layers, then finished the sauce.  We will definitely be having this again.

Made this tonight and it was delicious! I think quirkyjo's family must be rice monsters because I would do maybe half the rice, or less, next time. Also less parsley for the sauce because my sauce was a bit too green looking. Next time I need to be more careful to make holes for the steam. My chicken took a lot longer to cook because I don't think I was careful enough with that.

Oh yes I use about 500g chicken and reduce the rice by half. Otherwise it feeds an army!

The leftover rice is really nice the next day with just the green sauce poured over 😉 Both the sauce and rice freeze well (separately) too.

The fruit and veg delivery gave me ginger instead of garlic so it was the perfect excuse to have this again (not that I really need one) We all love this.

Yep it feeds an army. This is one of the very few dishes where there may be leftovers (usually some rice and sauce and a few bits of veg) for me for lunch the next day.
Love it :) :) :)

I've made this a few times now and it's always delicious! The sauce is really nice the next day with salmon done in the varoma.

I didn't realise this recipe was on this forum - I got it from Jo's blog site.  It is absolutely delicious - one of our favourite TM meals.  I always make the full quantity of rice as I love leftovers :)

This is one of my favourite dishes but for some reason hadn't made it for a long time so cooked it up at the weekend.  I use tofu instead of chicken as I am vegetarian and tried something different this time - after marinating the tofu for 10 - 15 minutes, I tossed it into an oven dish and roasted it for 10 - 15 minutes, it was really nice.   I might try it with chick peas or cannellini beans next time instead of tofu.

This makes more than enough for two meals.

Thank you, Jo. This was the first meal I cooked in my new machine. I love how it all came together so effortlessly,  it will be just the perfect dish for those too-hot-to -ook (or breathe) days ahead. 

I was blown away by how perfectly the rice cooked, and I love how I was able to fit in so much veg. Next time, which will be soon, I think I'd like to replace the soy sauce with fish sauce and introduce lime somewhere, zest, leaves, juice? in the sauce, on the chicken?, not sure yet. Just a personal preference for that flavour combination.
