Recipe contributed by Anne Tesconi, Group Leader WA
½ Onion, peeled and halved
1 clove Garlic
Basil and Parsley to taste
40g Olive Oil
6-8 Chicken Drumsticks – skin removed
1 can Crushed Tomatoes
1 MC White Wine
1MC Water (optional)
1 tbsp TM Vegetable Stock Concentrate
Salt and Pepper to taste
½ Red or Green Capsicum, diced
Handful chopped Mushrooms
Handful Black Olives
Place onion, garlic, basil and parsley into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 7.
Add oil and sauté for 2 minutes at 100ºC on speed 1.
Add drumsticks and assemble around knives and sauté for 4-5 minutes at 100ºC on Reverse + speed soft.
Add tomatoes, wine, water, stock, salt and pepper and cook for 30 minutes at 100ºC on Reverse + speed soft. Halfway through cooking time add capsicum, mushroom and olives.
If you would like to add extra vegetables to the dish (ie. sides of beans, broccoli or carrots etc), place them in the Varoma. After approx. 15 minutes of cooking, remove the MC and add the Varoma into place. Increase to Varoma temperature. Remember to add an extra 100g of liquid if steaming when you add the other liquid. Serve with steamed rice or pasta for a complete meal.
Cook Cacciatore first and place into your ThermoServer. Then cook rice or pasta and steam your extra vegetables then.
