Absolute winner! Delicious, easy, pretty healthy (I used chicken breasts instead, cut into goujon sized pieces) and cheap. Def going on the regular list.

Lots of flavour. We served it with stir-fry vegetables and rice.

Simple, quick and tasty. Don't think I'll bother with the chilli powder next time - probably use finely chopped birdseye chilli instead. I mixed mango chutney with soured cream for a delicious dip / sauce.

Very tasty. We cooked this as a main course, served with rice, rotis, yoghurt and mango chutney. You really get the flavour of the lime coming through. We did bake 10 minutes longer, as it wasn't cooked through in the suggested 25 minutes.

Absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe to the letter. I did turn them half way through to brown on both sides. Served as a starter with mango chutney when I had girlfriends over for a thai themed dinner party. They went down a treat!

Really quick and easy to make. Literally took 5 mins to mix it all together and get it in the oven. Loads of flavour. Didn't have any chutney but served with brown rice and veg. Will make again for a no-effort midweek meal.
