Steamed Chicken, Grapes and Walnut Salad

by Tenina Holder

If you haven't steamed chicken in your Thermomix, this summer is the time to start. You get the most amazing tender results and they are stunning for all sorts of salads. For best results, slice each chicken breast into 4 pieces and place into Varoma dish and tray. Place boiling water into Thermomix bowl and set Varoma into position. Cook for approximately 10-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
