I have made this recipe a few time now and it has been great every time. I stick to the stated ingredients and it always comes out well. Its really easy to make... I have it with the suggested mustard mash and a fresh cut baguette with butter. Big win

Couldn't believe how tasty this was going by the ingredients. Used 3 cloves of garlic (quite small ones) and as I thought it would be sickly sweet I only used 50g prunes but it wasn't at all so I think next time I shall try 80g. Served with roasted new potatoes and runner beans. Really delish and also re-heated the following evening which is not always the case.

Wasn't too if I was going to like this, not had prunes in a long time and I couldn't recall if I like them or not. I needn't of worried it was totally delicious, although maybe I used a tad too much apple. Anyway it was served with whole grain mustard mashed potato and is definitely one I will make again.

This is lovely. I made it with dried apricots as that is what I had on hand in the pantry, but next time I will use half the quantity. I liked it as is but my husband found the fruit a little overwhelming. Personally, I think the fruit really compliments the chicken. It is wonderful served with mashed potatoes.

this is delicious and very simple. not what i'd call spanish -- more country french perhaps?! but either way, this is so easy and very economical. it's become a repeat recipe for me. may i suggest adding some sprigs of fresh thyme before putting the lid on for the final bubble? i also like it served with brown rice.
