Quick and Easy Chicken Meal in Under 15 Minutes

I love any dinner that I can whip up in under 15 minutes and this is definitely one of them. Not only is it super fast and easy to make, it is actually as great base for a few different meals so it's great for making up a big batch of and using for multiple dinners.

The base is a creamy chicken mix which can be used on top of pasta, with rice, or as a filling for chicken pies. A lot of the time I will make up a huge double batch (for my 6 person household) and we will have creamy chicken pasta one night, and then chicken pies with mashed potato the next night. They actually taste like completely different meals but they are exactly the same recipe.

So today I'm gifting this simple recipe in the hopes that your family will love it as much as mine do.


100g Butter
100g Flour
500g Milk
500g Chicken Stock
250g Frozen Vegetables
400g Tin Mushrooms in Butter Sauce
BBQ Chicken
Salt and Pepper

Add the butter to the thermomix bowl and melt for 3 mins/100 degrees/speed 1.

Add in flour and cook for 3 mins/100 degrees/speed 1.

Add in the milk and chicken stock. Cook for 6 mins/90 degrees/speed 4. After about 2 minutes add in your mushrooms in butter sauce (this step is optional if you want your mushrooms diced up. If you want them to stay whole wait and add them in with the chicken).

Add in the chicken and the vegetables and cook for 5 mins/100 degrees/reverse/speed 1.

Serve on top of pasta or rice, or use as a filling for chicken pies.

Note- For chicken pies line a pie dish with shortcrust pastry. Add the pie filling. Cover with puff pastry and cook in a preheated 200deg oven for 15-20 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

If you are confused as to what a Thermomix is, I will leave a photo and a link down below to the machine on Amazon as I'm not sure where they are sold where you live. In Australia you find a consultant and buy through the Thermomix company. They retail in Australia for about $2000, when I bought mine they were running a 24 month interest free deal so I paid for mine at about $20 a week.
