    Instructions

    Stuffing

    • Place Parmesan, garlic, parsley, macadamias and rosemary into the mixer, pulse turbo once (speed 10 / .5 seconds / mc on). You want all ingredients lightly chopped only; non-tmx users may need to repeat
    • Tip out into a bowl and add salt and pepper, mince and egg and mix by hand until combined
    • The mozzarella and asparagus is placed on the centre of the mince before rolling

    Wrapped Chicken

    • Butterfly your chicken breasts and bash out lightly to flatten (the easiest method is to cover with cling film and bash with a rolling pin (we have a video of this method loaded on our website)
    • Season with a few pinches of salt and pepper
    • Place mince meat or other stuffing on the breast and roll up (roll from the bottom of the breast up to the top, instead of closing it back up the way it was, this will help keep the thickness even)
    • Wrap with bacon and tie up with string or hold together with skewers and sit in the large varoma steamer bowl

    • Into the mixer place 700ml water then steam the chicken 30 minutes cheese/veg stuffing, 35 minutes mince filled, or 60 minutes stuffed turkey breast / varoma temp / speed 2. Squeeze the rolls with tongs to check the juices are clear, if they are pink you will need to steam a further 5-10 minutes
    • Crisp up the bacon by searing in a hot pan on all sides, with the butter and sage, be careful of popping bacon fat
    • With the juices remaining in the mixer, check you have roughly 1 cup (250ml) then to this add the cream, xanthan gum, and once finished cooking add the now browned butter and sage from the pan
    • Cook 2 minutes / 70 degrees / speed 3 / mc on

    Notes

    The Mince Stuffing recipe can also be used in a roast chicken with herb butter or Paris butter under the skin
    The seasoning of this dish relies heavily on the bacon, so if not using the bacon make sure you season the chicken and sauce with salt to your tastes
    If you are having a few people around, we recommend making a few of each flavour so people can sample them all. Simply steam them the day before to save time, and reserve all your juices, then double or triple the sauce, extending the cooking time until hot. Then to reheat the chicken, place into a hot 180C oven for 30 minutes, then turn it to grill and rotate a few times until the bacon is crispy, BEWARE of popping bacon fat.
