Light and lovely. Really tasty and easy to make. Used dill and very happy with the results. The whole family liked it and finished every morsel.

I made this yesterday. I followed the recipe and it was lovely!

I made this and pretty much followed recipe, but I thickened with corn flour, and added French beans as well, and chose dill as the herb. It was delicious! Not bland at all. I have never put mustard in a casserole before, and that subtle flavour through the soup was lovely. I will make this again and again!

I have made this few times, it's become a bit is a regular at our dinner table. A few times I've done it with left over roast chicken, very nice

Very basic, lacks flavour and very watery too. Should have fried onions first, maybe add garlic too and then fry chicken. I'm no great cook but I think it could have been better. Had to use a bit of corn flour to thicken it up. Won't make again unfortunately.

Easy to cook and very tasty. I used green beans and mange tout as well as some frozen peas. Everyone ate it up including the teenagers! The potatoes are gorgeous having soaked up the flavours. Will certainly cook it again.

Tasty recipe

I loosely followed recipe, used chicken thighs, used 100grm of bacon lardons. Cooked them first, then added and browned chicken thighs added in basil,oregano,thyme& sage, then a chicken stock pot. Followed by flour and water. My vegetables were carrots, a leek & shallots. Left out potatoes. Cooked as above and served with a parsnip & potato mash. Will definitely make again.

What a deliciously simply meal. I omitted the potatoes and we had it with brown rice instead. I also used leek instead of spring onion (prefernce) and fried a chopped fennel bulb with it, then I added some lemon zest. I like the idea of adding some bacon too as suggested above. Will definitely make this again!

Forgot to say, the herb choice was tarragon which went well with the chicken.

This cooked really well and turned out lovely. Tasty and colourful. I used a mixture of chicken thighs and drumsticks. You don't need any more flour. The consistency is perfect.

My family loved this one. I used chicken fillets instead and added a few leeks that were lying around and more flour so it was a bit thicker. Thyme was the herb choice. Lovely.

Made this a few times now , so easy and very tasty

I plan to make this recipe but just wonderers if it would be better with a tablespoon or 2 more flour to make it a bit thicker and more gravy like?

Very good recipe. I would recommend flouring the chicken in a platic bag with some spices (paprika) then frying in a very hot pan to brown (and crisp). Drain excess oil on kitchen paper.

After this frying finely chopped bacon in the same pan and until crispy and drain on kitchen paper.

Then chuck it all in as per the recipe! Lovely.

Very tasty recipe and easy to prepare.

Very lovely flavour! However, the sauce wasn't quite thick enough for my taste. It is easy to make though and fairly quick. Good amount of veg. Would recommend with ciabatta or some other nice bread that can mop up the sauce.

Exceptionally tasty for such a speedy one pot meal. Tastes as if you've carefully prepared it hours in advance, when in reality you've thrown it together in no time at all!

Good chicken stock definitely helps and thighs add so much more flavour than chicken breast. Mr Egbert very impressed.

I thought this was actually a bit boring - certainly nothing special. Sorry.
