Very nice. Perhaps the texture should be set to standard as the chicken was still a bit firm after 8 minutes. No mention is made of the texture – next time I will set it to Standard as it seems to automatically go to Light. I preferred to cook the spinach and pepper in another pan rather than transfer the chicken and then add to the pot. There was a lot of fluid which I thickened with a bit of corn flour back on the fry function to let it thicken.
