Bland. Needs a bit of oomph! I think people who added some extra ingredients probably made the best of it.

Very disappointing

Delicious! The gravy had a lovely flavour, I didn't have a lemon so missed that out. Even my fussy 11 year old ate it!

This is surprisingly tasty for how simple it is! I made it a few times over summer, usually with couscous and salad. Last night I used the basis of it as inspiration for more of a stew, and added garlic, tomatoes and butter beans, and served with red cabbage. I sometimes remove the skin to reduce the calorific value, although am still slightly baffled as to how it can be quite so high as 701. Very good, would recommend anyone gives it a go.

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.

You did something wrong, don't know what? Chicken thighs would be cooked through on a hob in half that time. You definitely done something wrong.

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.

Are calories per recipes or per person ☺

katehay's picture

Is this really 701 calories per serving? It seems very high for the ingredients used.

goodfoodteam's picture

Yes this is correct, if you want to reduce the amount of calories then you can use chicken breast or remove the skin from the thighs first.

Probably due to the skin on. But as we know its not the calories that we should be concerned about its the carbs, sugar and un-natural fats. This is a very popular dinner in our house.
