Traditionally chicken breast never tasted so good as when it is done in the steam oven. For those of you without a steam oven, consider using a bain marie in your traditional oven...you will never go back! This is the Thermomix version. Don't skip the searing part or you will need to add steaming time. It is hard to over cook the chicken when steaming, but you can certainly kill the fillings, so don't over do it!
This recipe is so adaptable for all tastes. Just use your imagination with the fillings, remembering not to overstuff as you want the filling to stay inside the chicken! Serving with the sauce is always my choice, and of course a salad or steamed veggies on the side are great. If you want to go the European route, then pasta or mashed potato are the way to go.
