Chicken Quinoa Salad with Asparagus

Serves 4 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 40 minutes   Rated:


I knew I wanted to steam some chicken breast and collect a little group of ideas on how to then use said steamed chook! This is one of the ideas we literally wrote down as a list of ingredients, then quickly filmed and added and tweaked for Insider Club. We loved them all, (there were three on the filming day) and you will too! It is time to join us for Spring and Summer Salad Days. Isn't it nice to think we are nearly there again?

Bring on 2021!

To make the Buttermilk Dressing place all ingredients into a small bowl and combine with a balloon whisk. Set aside.


Place the water into the Thermomix bowl. Line the Varoma dish with wet, scrunched up baking paper and place the chicken on top. Place the asparagus into the Varoma tray. Cook 25 min/Varoma/speed 3.


Plunge the asparagus into icy water the minute you are happy that it is cooked well enough to your taste. This may be from around the 15 minute mark onwards.


Slice the chicken thinly. Arrange mint, rocket, quinoa, chicken and asparagus on individual plates or serving platter. Pour over Buttermilk Dressing. Serve!
