Haven't decided on that bit yet Hally, but I'll let you know as soon as I do ;) I won't do the one you're doing though, I'll do something different ;D

I'm another one who hasn't made this (not that I remember anyway). I'm actually not a fan of boiled potatoes, they have to be golden brown and crispy for me to eat them.

I've only done this a few times, it's something you can just throw together when you've had a busy day.  It's healthy and light and the basic recipe is a little bland but I don't mind it for a change and DH has never complained as it is meat (chicken) with 3 or more vegies and he likes that.

I'd love to know which is the tastiest version of this recipe.

I was initially thinking of making the version with honey mustard etc, but I think I'm now leaning towards the one where you saute a diced leek in butter first; add white wine/stock and mustard. Cook 200g macaroni for approx 20 minutes.

I'd like to try a few variations!

Wonder, you could always make it with pasta instead of potatoes? (I agree, boiled potatoes can be a bit boring...I still like them, but they're no where near as tasty as ones that are golden brown and crispy! :)

Let us know what variation you come up with Amy!

Hope you rise to the challenge of doing a "best of bafs chicken ..." (of course if you think your recipe is any better than anyone else's there may need to be a poll ...

I did my variation tonight! Your turn tomorrow night blackwood ;D

What I did:

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Prepare varoma - broccoli and cauliflower in dish, fill tray with sliced mushrooms.
500g stock in bowl, 500g mixed potato and sweet potato in steamer basket - 10 mins/varoma/speed 4.
Varoma in position - 20 minutes/varoma/speed 4.
Prepare chicken - cut into strips, coat in egg and chunky breadcrumbs, sprinkle with Morrocan seasoning.
Place in oven, use gut feeling - cooking time will depend on thickness of strips. Mine took about 20 minutes.
Remove steamer basket and varoma from TMX, keep vegetables warm. Tip mushrooms into bowl along with cream cheese and 30g flour. Cook for 8-10 minutes/90 degrees/reverse + speed 3.
Check chicken. If ready, slice into chunks to serve. Arrange on plates with vegetables and drizzle with sauce.
YUMMMMY ;D

Oh my goodness! Amy, that looks unbelievably good! I have the chicken defrosting in the fridge as we speak...all ready for Baf's chicken tomorrow night! I am so under pressure now...I was planning on doing it pretty much as written and doing "variation h"! - I still feel too new at this to be creative enough to make up my own recipe!!!

I do like your idea if adding the moroccan seasoning to the chicken (I don't have any herbamore  - I'll have to looks for that at the shops!) Amy, may I copy your idea of using moroccan seasoning?

OK, I'll try to remember to take a photo of it before we gobble it down, but it might take me a little while to learn how to upload photos onto the forum.

I'll let you know how i'm going tomorrow...I feel lucky to know that if I get into trouble making a new recipe that there'll always be someone on the forum ready to help!!!  ;)

That's the one I use CC and we love it. I use it on fish, chicken and lamb in various dishes. I have made some for each of my kids as they really like te flavours too. Much nicer than the pre-packaged ones.  :)

Thanks blackwood!! I'm sure you could come up with your own variation if you wanted to, its just matching flavours and tweaking cooking techniques ;)
Of course you can use moroccan seasoning! In fact, I highly recommend you try it because it is so yummy :D :D
Good luck tomorrow, we'll be here if you need us! ;D
