Chicken

  • My version of this curry classic pays homage to the original 1950s Delhi version but it's super easy and quick. The flavour of the curry powder is key to this dish - its worth making my vadouvan curry powder but any good blend will do the trick.

    Rendang is a typical Malaysian curry, an absolute favourite that's loved all around the world. There are countless variations - today's is cooked by Malay cookbook author Suriya Abdullah, who I was delighted to spend time with in Kuala Lumpur.

    I am a biiiiiig Jo 'Quirky Cooking' Whitton fan - and my fandom leapt up a notch when I tried her Chicken Pot Pies. As well as being grain-free, dairy-free and gluten-free they are creamy and crispy in all the right places and downright tasty and wholesome all round.

    Slow-cooked chicken in 30 minutes? Sounds crazy, right? But that’s what we get with this Mexican chicken: after just half an hour, you end up with shredded chicken that looks and tastes like it’s been slow-cooked for hours. Serve it with your own tortillas and a vibrant salsa and you’ve got a simple but special meal on your hands.

    ThermoStar Tim makes the Tandoori Chicken from my Entertaining cookbook. As he says, it's really easy and, as you'll see, it's adaptable too. Please join me in my project to make 'hot pineapple' a craze!
  • I visited Thermomix Mexico HQ to ask them which key Mexican dish I needed to cook when I got home. They told me pozole! This rich and satisfying soup is a meal in itself, with the hearty goodness of corn, black beans and chicken.
  • Everybody needs a simple chicken soup in their repertoire: this one is warming, sustaining, nurturing and nourishing. Steaming a whole chicken in the Varoma is brilliant for all kinds of reasons. Firstly, the chicken juices drip over the vegetables and into the mixing bowl, flavouring everything and forming a healthy broth at the same time. Steamed chicken also remains incredibly juicy. It’s a really clean way to cook too, with very little mess to deal with at the end – love you, Thermomix!

    Oh what a comforting dish! Buttermilk-marinated chicken is juicy and tender, with a slight tang from the buttermilk. You'll often see fried chicken marinated in buttermilk but in this case, I steam chicken over rice, creating a deeply flavoured pilaf.

    Yum! I love this big, flavoursome salad. It’s Thai-inspired with lots of fresh herbs and lime, and the spark of green chilli. Of course, you can leave the chilli out if you like!
