Many owners in the Thermomix world know of Jo Whitten and her amazing recipes through her blog site Quirky Cooking. Jo’s recipes promotes healthy, allergy friendly meals and are designed to be absolutely delicious and enjoyed by all. When I made Jo’s famous Chicken and Cashew with Coconut Satay Sauce and Coconut rice recipe, I was very much feeling under the weather. Determined not to give in to buying takeaway because I was unwell, I gave it a shot and lets just say I am so glad I didn’t buy takeaway. This meal was not only cheaper, but far more nutritional.
Prep and Cooking Time – 30 minutes + marinating time | Serves – 4 – 6 adults
