Oh wow...just cooked this and in the words of my 2 year old "yummy"! I cooked it keeping the same amount of lemon, but added honey over the top (2tsp). Added chorizo and courgette as advised below, and served alongside the yellow rice. A new firm favourite in our house, my 2 year old ate everything and almost licked the plate clean. I would like to have more veggies in it next time, maybe some peppers thrown in too.

I'm not sure if what I got were particularly large chicken thighs but after the full 45 minute cooking time the chicken still had the same texture as that of raw chicken, something to be cautious of.

Having read the comments I too adjusted the recipe:

Thin slices of chorizo
Courgette
Pimenton Picante instead of Paprika
Garlic with fresh parsley
Passata

The lemon still came through but the right amount, it was lovely I cooked it for longer than stated in an oven terracota dish.

Nice, quick and tasty. Did it with couscous and lemon juice, and lemon zest, healthy summery dish, served with broccoli on the side.

A firm favourite. But you must have smoked paprika. Isn't as good without it.

This is a regular in our house, and it works really well if you add
chorizo. Great flavours and lots of juices to mop up,just right this time of the year.

I added chorizo as per earlier suggestion and thought that this recipe was great, I served it with Rice (cooked in chicken stock and paella spices). I made this a second time and decided to precook the onion with the chorizo and was even better. Such an easy recipe.

Had this twice now and my boyfriend and I love it! Cheap cuts of meat used too so a good money saver.
I would say though to invest in good quality paprika (such as La Chinata Smoked Paprika) as I think it makes the difference as it cuts through the sharpness of the lemon with its smokiness. Yum…

I really liked this, it was very easy to make (just shove everything in a pot and put it in the oven!). Based on the previous reviews, I used slightly less lemon juice/zest, some garlic and chorizo. This is now one of my favourite dinners.

I stuck to the recipe, except to add extra stock (350mls+2 cubes chicken stock) & extra lemon juice. During cooking, I basted the chicken with the juices & made sure that the onions didn't dry out. When I served the rice, I poured the juices over it & placed the onions on top. Everybody loved it!

I added some chorizo chunks and it was delicious. It went down a storm with my guests and I can tell that it is going to become a firm family favourite!

As suggested modified this recipe to include chorizio, two full separated garlic heads and replaced the stock with manzanilla sherry and it was gorgeous!
