It feels like the middle of the Antarctic at the moment and I need something warm and delicious in my belly! 🙂 This thermomix lime ginger chicken fills that spot perfectly. It’s a beautiful light meal that leaves room for the most important accompaniment to any meal DESSERT! 😉 In all seriousness this is so hard to describe but it is just a beautiful meal that I think you will find a lot of the family members will be heading to the bowl for more!
I can’t remember how I came across this recipe but I do remember having something similar at a friends house one get together. I have a feeling it was someone’s birthday and we finished the meal off with this Baileys & Chocolate Mud Cake . That’s how long ago it was…. (and no I’m not going senile just because I have had a big birthday recently! 🙂 Although if you ask some of the Funkies they would disagree… lol!)
