I’ve had the idea for this recipe in my head for a while now and finally got a chance to put it down on paper.  This is an easy, all-in-one dish using the Varoma to steam the chicken and vegetables, while cooking the rice in the Thermomix basket.

1. The liquid left in the Thermomix bowl makes a great broth or stock, so either grab a mug or freeze it to use at another time
