Everyone kept talking about “fried rice” in the Thermomix so I thought I better see what I was missing out on.
I searched a few different recipes but was worried there wouldn’t be enough flavour so I experimented. So glad I did because I found a new favourite. Everyone had two bowls full and my partner had three! There is plenty left for lunch today for two people too. The flavours in this recipe are a hit in this house and inspired this creation.

Ingredients
  1. 3 cloves of garlic, peeled
  2. 4 spring onions, roughly chopped
  3. 1 spring onion, finely sliced for garnish
  4. 50g oyster sauce
  5. 60g soy sauce
  6. 1/2 teas black pepper
  7. 2 chicken breasts, chop into quarters and prick each piece with a fork several times to allow flavour to penetrate the chicken
  8. 400g rice of choice, jasmine or basmati work well
  9. 800g warm water
  10. Vegetables of choice to fill the top varoma tray (I used broccoli, carrot, snow peas, peas and corn)
Instructions
  1. Process shallots and garlic on speed 9 for 5 seconds. Scrape down. Repeat.
  2. Add pepper, soy and oyster sauces.
  3. Blitz on speed 4 until combined. Scrape down.
  4. Add chicken.
  5. Blitz on reverse, speed 3 for 5 secs or until just coated.
  6. Place in refrigerator to marinate for 2 hours or all day if you have time. If not you can cook immediately.
  7. When ready to cook, place chicken in the bottom steaming attachment tray.
  8. Pour over the remaining marinade. Do not rinse the bowl out, any left over sauce will add flavour to the rice.
  9. Place rice into basket. Rinse thoroughly under running water.
  10. Insert basket into bowl and pour the water over the top.
  11. Attach lid.
  12. Place steaming attachment bottom tray and lid into place.
  13. Cook 25 minutes, speed 4 at steaming temperature.
  14. Meanwhile chop all your veggies to desired size. Place on the top steaming tray and place onto the bottom steaming tray in the last ten minutes.
  15. When done remove the steaming attachment. Remove the rice from bowl.
  16. Pour any remaining liquid into a jug.
  17. Pop the cooked chicken into the bowl and blitz on reverse, speed 4 for 6 seconds.
  18. Place the bottom steaming attachment tray on the lid.
  19. Pour rice, veggies and shredded chicken into it. Mix. Top with sliced shallots and pour over the remaining liquid if desired.
Notes
  1. Those with a Thermomix will know their steaming attachment as a Varoma. Other machines will know it as the steamer.
  2. Those with a Thermomix will know their steaming temperature as Varoma temperature. Other machines will know it as the steaming or ST temperature.
