Chicken with Lime, Thai style

Reply with quote Modify message Remove message

This all in one dish is,  rice in Basket, Chicken in Varoma bottom tray and Veggies in top tray.  This amount is for 2 but can easily be doubled.
You will need a heat proof dish with lid for the chicken and the sauce.
The timing will depend upon,  how big the pieces of chicken are,  and if you use breast or thigh.
Place 1 liter of cold water into TMX bowl.
I used medium grain rice,  200g weighed into basket.  This should take about 20 mins to steam.

Hard veggies such as carrot and pumpkin in tray first,  add greens later as they need a shorter time.

Add to heat proof dish,
250g of chicken cut into 3 cm. cubes or strips.
Juice of 1 lime
2 kiffir lime leaves , torn in 1/2,  or grated rind of 1 lime
1 clove of garlic,  crushed
1/3 cup of sweet chilli sauce,  or more if you like it spicy
1/2 cup of water.
Mix all together,  put lid on dish and set TMX, 35 mins, (breast),  45 mins (thigh)
Add hard veggies in top tray.
Check rice at 20 mins after water boils.  Remove to Thermoserver to keep warm.
Add soft veggies to top tray.

Mix 1 teaspoon of cornflour with a little water and stir into chicken,  at 25 mins.

The rice is enough for 2 meals for us, I reheat in Microwave or freeze for another meal.
I place 2 bamboo skewers under heatproof dish for better circulation.
