    This is a Nico Moretti recipe I posted on forum thermomix and have since reduced the coconut milk down to 200mls as there was far too much liquid in the original version. It may not need as much cornflour (if any) with the smaller quantity of liquid. I now cook the chicken at 90o not 100o and I prefer to use chicken thighs instead of breast meat.
