pippa, to help us get to the bottom of your problem can you perhaps let us know exactly how you went about cooking this recipe,step by step and the type of chicken used etc.  I cooked mine with the marinade but others have done it without, both ways work.  Have you read all the postings on this thread to see what others have done.  Chicken drumsticks don't work, it has to be the tiny drumettes made from the chicken wing.

the only thing I can think of is that a wing got stuck/skewered under the blades perhaps and stopped them from turning around, hence only the bottom got burnt and the chicken remained raw.

Thanks Judydawn - I did read the whole thread before starting and I also thought it would be a good idea to start from the beginning of what I did.  But now I am wondering if my chicken was too big.  I used chicken wings, but the whole "boomerang" wing - was this where I went wrong?

When I made the marinade, the TMX did not coat the wings at all, so I just poured it all into a container and marinated them that way overnight.

There really isn't much more to the recipe is there? 

I missed this step by accident- Place oil in TM bowl and heat to 100C, speed 2 for 1 minute.

I put it on varoma temp,  :-:^^, for 30 minutes with the chicken in the bowl.  I did not include the marinade.  I placed the varoma on top.  There isn't anything more to it is there?

Thanks for trying to help

the fact that it was burnt on the bottom appears that you did put the Varoma on at some stage, but perhaps for the part where the chicken was cooking it was either caught under a blade and prevented them from turning or you may have thought you put the Varoma on and didn't actually. Most times there is always a plausible explanation, but don't give up on this lovely recipe and give it another go as its definitely worth it.

Well pippa, perhaps we are getting somewhere.  The whole chicken wing would have got caught up around the blades at some stage.  Next time you try this recipe, definitely start off with chicken drumettes - you can either make them yourself or buy them ready prepared at Leonards or somewhere. It is the part of the wing furtherest from the tip that is used to make drumettes and although it is a fiddly and time consuming job to do, I have made them myself then used the other 2 pieces for chicken stock/soup.  I will detail the process below. Whenever I am cooking a new recipe I check through the lid with a torch periodically to see what is happening in there and although I have only done this recipe once, I know I checked on it many times because I couldn't get my head around bones and blades being compatable.  You will be able to re-adjust the contents if something has been caught by checking on things.  I think if you start off with the correct cut & follow the recipe to a T, everything else will just follow on perfectly.

To make chicken drumettes -  wash and dry wings.  Cut off wing tips at joint. You are then left with just the meaty end piece. Holding small end of bone, trim around bone with a sharp knife to cut meat free from bone.  Then cut, scrape and push meat down to large end.  Using fingers, pull skin and meat down over end of bone - they will resemble baby drumsticks.
1.5kg chicken wings makes approx. 24 chicken drumettes.

I'm so sorry you've had this problem Pippa.  I've never come across this.  At a demo once I accidentally cooked it at speed 4, and the blades kindly removed all the meat from the bone for us...  :D :D :D :-))

It sounds like the others have already suggested, as if either the varomoa wasn't on top, thus no steam was being created in the bowl and/or for some reason some of the wings have become stuck under the blades causing the issue.

i wish I was able to pin point it for you a little more.

So Judydawn and I love Bimby - I have to use the tiny drumsticks from the wings is that what it is, not the whole chicken wing - yes?

Missed this thread - lol, yes I do cook these a lot.
Pippa glad you got it sorted.
re the wings getting stuck - even with the drumettes I've had to give one a quick shift with the spatula before when I've heard the tmx catching and struggling.
Other thing I guess to check is that you have steam after 5-10mins (you can see and hear it) if not check you are on varoma temp (I've madea mistake with that before and had to add cooking time/recook veg etc) and nothing is stuck etc.
