Beans overcooked vs chicken undercooked. I think there are better ways to enjoy chicken.

Really good and v. easy. Used chicken breasts (just put them in half an hour before the potatoes were done) and put the green beans in about 20 mins before the end. Very tasty. One small point - I cooked the potatoes for around an hour altogether and still thought they could have had another 15 mins or so when I served them..

Made this last night and it was so simple and delicious! Am already planning when to next make it and what I'll add/change next time. Personally, there was too much honey making it too sweet for my taste - so next time I'll use half the amount. Also planning on trying it with some onion and mushrooms.

Delicious recipe - the chicken was succulent and all the flavours complimented each other very nicely.

Definately worth cooking the beans seperately. A nice easy family dinner. Will cook this one again and again

really nice sauce. couldn't get hold of any creme fraiche so used greek yoghurt instead, which made the consistency thinner than i would like but was a good substitute. left out the potatoes and served with mash and peas instead.

Sticky and sweet - you could do this without the chicken as a side dish too.

Great super easy recipe. Agree re the beans, I have made it lots of times now and tuck a few beans in under the chicken then cook extra separately. Tastes even better the next day.

This was incredibly easy and went down well with a fussy nephew. Definitely one to try when short of time.

This recipe creates a lovely flavour in the chicken. Make sure you use small potatoes, or give the whole dish longer in the oven to ensure they are not hard. Also, add the beans in 10 or 15 minutes after everything else, otherwise they will come out a little crisp! For those who prefer a non dairy option - it also works with soya dream...
