Despite some of the negative comments about this recipe, my partner and I really enjoyed it. It was tasty and quick and easy to prepare, a perfect midweek supper.

First recipe I've tried from the site and I found it terribly disappointing, very bland.

I've had a Good Food magazine subscription for 3 years and I have never felt the need to leave a negative comment about a GF recipe before. I cannot believe this has been "triple tested". Exceptionally bland dish and the dill, chicken, allspice, broad bean combo does nothing for me. Avoid!

Very easy to make and fresh tasting but I also found it didn't have enough flavour.

It is an easy recipe and looked just like the photo. But I cooked it as a one pot main course and it did not have enough flavour. If I cooked it again I would replace the chicken with mushroom and serve it to accompany something with a strong flavour like a curry.

Didn't use dill and I used half the rice and stock for 2 people.
