Delicious and very easy. I added a splash of white wine and a tablespoon of creme fraiche, as I had them the cupboard, didn't have any parsley so used dried rosemary. Served with pasta but I think it would work well with rice or potatoes. Will definitely make it again.

Love this recipe! I also added garlic and then stirred in some soft cheese right at the end! Delicious!

Very easy to make. Tip - add garlic when frying the mushrooms for extra flavour and add a couple of tbsp of plain flour to the sauce whilst cooking to thicken it up. Tasty. I used chicken on the bone this time (so had to cook for longer) but next time will use chicken breasts

I used smoked bacon instead of pancetta, and didn't have any parsley so I cooked rosemary with the onions. I also added a teaspoon of dijon mustard into the sauce and cooked garlic with the mushrooms and bacon.
A very nice dish and it is 1 pot too, which always adds points in my book :)

I left out the pancetta in this to make even more healthy, used 650g of chicken rather than 500g and made the stock up to 300ml. Also added half a tsp of ground ginger and it fed 5 (with accompaniments). No need to add cream or flour to make a thicker sauce if you're a little generous with the flour dusting.

Absolutely delicious.

Great recipe, sauce turned out perfectly, just added a little cornflour at the end to thicken it up. Very tasty though!

Very tasty and easy to make, ideal for midweek dinner.

Cooked this for my friends, added a splash of double cream and garlic and got excellent feedback. Think it will be a regular.
Thanks

Nice enough mid-week meal. Wish I'd used chicken breasts, and added a clove of garlic, but probably won't make again.

Made this tonight tasted amazing, used bacon instead of pancetta, 2tbs of double cream as that's all we had, didn't have mushrooms either so just used peas and seasoned the chicken with some salt, black pepper and brown sugar! Fab!

We really enjoyed, used bone in chicken thighs and cooked for an extra 15 minutes. Also substituted green beans for the peas and served with mash.
