This is a well used recipe in my home, great for a tasty and easy dinner. No one in the family likes olives but we still add them for the flavour and it's great. One great thing about this recipe is that you can tailor it to different people's tastes. For example, I add aubergine for myself and cherry tomatoes for my husband.

I always cube the potatoes and parboil them to get them to cook - takes a bit more time and equipment but it's the only way to get them to cook! For this reason, I'm knocking off one star from the rating.

Tried this for two people so halved the quantities, will definitely do it again but will add red onions and button mushrooms.
Didn't add the black olives as I wasn't sure we'd enjoy them, cooked some separate so we could try them without affecting the taste of the main dish

Nice flavours but I cut potatoes small and they still took ages to cook so the chicken was dry. Might try it again without the potatoes!

I made this again but I used white fish instead of chicken, lemons instead of oranges and cherry tomatoes instead of olives - and again it was lovely!

This was very tasty and so easy although we did have to adjust the cooking times a little as the potatoes weren't cooked through in the time stated. Next time I would slice the potatoes and oranges more thinly and probably use fresh thinly sliced peppers instead of bottled, and chuck it all in at the beginning of stage 3. We also used chicken thighs which worked well and gave good flavour. Destined to become a weekday staple in our house, I think.

Fantastic, loved it. Wonderful flavours and easy to do. Would make a good substitute for sunday lunch. Will try it with fish and lemon next time.

What an easy, tasty meal! Wasn't sure about the oranges, but they added a really nice flavour. Will be making this again for sure! It needed about an extra 10mins in the oven to get the potatoes nicely browned and I served it with gravy.

This is delicious - reminds me of Jamie O's pork, potato, parsnip and pear traybake. I swapped the new potatoes for chopped up sweet potatoes and use chicken thighs as I don't see the point of chicken breasts! Will definitely make again.

this is a nice recipe , a little plain for me though i need sauce , will maybe add a bit of stock near the end next time.

I used chicken breasts sliced, and fresh peppers added earlier and green olives with just one lemon. I also added shallots .It was lovely, and my guests enjoyed it. Amazingly easy, and excellent if you want to make something that you do not have to fuss over.

I replaced the jar peppers with fresh red peppers. You need to add the peppers earlier in the cooking time to give them time to soften but not dry out. I also added peeled shallots at the same time as the potatoes. I added a good twist of lemon pepper towards the end of the cooking time of the chicken and potatoes.

your friends will just love this, as we did, its something you can play with till the cows come home,try cherry toms with it, its a must.

This dish is good if you like a strong citrus taste and olives... Personally it was just a bit too much for me.

I loved this - however, the boys in the family hated it. To take account of their liking for spicy food, I included Cajun spices when I fried the chicken. They liked that a lot! To help pad it out a little (and reduce the potatoes) I used mushrooms, which they also liked a lot. However, my hubby hated the potatoes and the both of them hated the orange. ~shrug~ I loved it and served it with a little green salad dressed in a little Balsamic vinegar. YUM!

I roasted the peppers instead of buying them ready since the jared ones are very expensive here where I live and hard to get. Simple, fast, healthy and delicous meal - and the children liked it! I will make it again and again...

fabsukisue's picture

Why cannot I print of the recipes anymore? My computer is not near my kitchen. I have arthritis in my hands and it's very difficult for me to write down the recipes.
