Perinaise Tip - Leave 1 Tbsp of marinade in the Thermomix mixer bowl and go on to make my Mayonaise recipe without washing the bowl. Let the Perinaise chill in the fridge while your chicken marinates.
Super Skinny Adaptation: Remove the oil, replacing with 15 g or 0.5 oz water. Use chicken breast.
FODMAP Friendly: Take out garlic and swap the plain oil with garlic-infused olive oil and use the green part of spring onions instead of 1 large onion.
