Currently in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy & I'm obsessed with this recipe! I'm eating it a minimum of twice a week and my son (4) loves it too. Add a few drops of Worcestershire sauce and it's even better. Scrumptious!

Very full of flavour. The thyme & chicken went really well together, but we felt the squash was rather bland, mushy and tasteless.

I seriously didn't think this would be as tasty as it actually turned out to be. Really delicious. I used french beans, carrots and courgette. Will definitely be making again.

Tasty, satisfying and easy. Substitute the thyme for your favourite herb - I like it with tarragon

I skipped the olives too and substituted diced carrots and as I didn't have a flame-proof casserole to hand, I cooked it all in a large pan on the stove top. It was delicious, my other half loved it and I have now cooked it twice using that method. A lovely, hearty, winter warming recipe.

Delicious!!! Even my boyfriend who hates olives ate most of them because he said the taste wasn't too strong. Will definitely make this again!

I added carrots and skipped the olives per personal taste. The chicken was lovely and moist and tender. I really enjoyed this meal and will be making it again.

This is a great recipe which also ties in with my Slimming World eating plan - well balanced, tasty and healthy at the same time. Made it for my in-laws and they loved it so all the better!!

We skipped on the olives, added 4 cloves of garlic, a glass of white wine and some pumpkin to this recipe. Finally we added some watered down corn flour to thicken the sauce- served with crusty bread for a more substantial meal. Will make again!

very tasty, chicken was lovely and tender. dish was perhaps a bit too watery for my liking, so i would use less stock next time.
fab fast meal though.
