Very very nice indeed, my partner managed it all alone too, and so easy to make.

Went down a treat with the family. Used chicken thighs instead of legs and added carrots too. Will definitely become a regular meal.

this is a favourite in our house - without the wholegrain mustard as I'm not a fan - we have it a lot! such an easy midweek meal

delicious outcome. i have a problem because my daughter and husband do not like to eat vegetables and it gets quite frustrating sometimes. when i prepared this dish they asked for more:-)) will surely do it again and again

Instead of courgettes I used carrots which worked just fine. It's great as a one-pot dish and definately a winner with my family.
