Last year we were sent a Tefal Cook4Me Multicooker and it’s pretty amazing. It can cook a meal in 10 minutes. Start to finish. You can brown, pressure (quick) cook, slow cook, reheat or keep warm.
I use it regularly to make soups and its also really good for casseroles, meatballs and spag Bol.
I’ve found that I am inspired quite a lot of the time to throw new dishes together as I know I haven’t got to slave over the hob for hours on a dish that may not turn out the way I want. Last night I made a totally delicious Spanish Chicken with Orzo pasta. From start to finish it took me about 17 minutes.
If you fancy making it yourself it was a bit of a throw it all together recipe but it worked and here it is:
You will need:
3 chicken breasts
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 tin of boiling water
1 chicken stock cube
1 pepper diced ( I used yellow)
1 carrot diced
1/2 sweet potato diced
1 shallot diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon of smoked paprika
100g of orzo pasta
1tbsp of olive oil
Turn on the browning function and brown your chicken, shallot and garlic in the olive oil. Then switch to manual before adding all other ingredients and giving a good stir. Cook on the quick cook setting for 14 minutes. Check the chicken is cooked at this stage and tear apart into the sauce. Cook again on quick cook for a further 3 minutes.
If using traditional cooking methods, you could do so using a large pan but allow longer cooking time to ensure chicken is thoroughly cooked and the sauce has time to thicken.
Serve with hunks of fresh bread – it’s worth noting that my little ones simply loved this dish.
If you want a kitchen device that you can use for lots of different dishes, is easy to clean and simple to use I highly recommend this Tefal Cook4Me.
