This was delicious! We used smoked paprika & a few cloves of crushed garlic to add to the flavour. We also added about a thumb sized piece of chorizo chopped up as well as recommended below. We used a mixture of chicken thighs & chicken breast. 3 stars given due to adding other ingredients to give it more oomph! We will definitely be having this again!

Bland. Needs a bit of oomph! I think people who added some extra ingredients probably made the best of it.

Delicious! The gravy had a lovely flavour, I didn't have a lemon so missed that out. Even my fussy 11 year old ate it!

This is surprisingly tasty for how simple it is! I made it a few times over summer, usually with couscous and salad. Last night I used the basis of it as inspiration for more of a stew, and added garlic, tomatoes and butter beans, and served with red cabbage. I sometimes remove the skin to reduce the calorific value, although am still slightly baffled as to how it can be quite so high as 701. Very good, would recommend anyone gives it a go.

Oh wow...just cooked this and in the words of my 2 year old "yummy"! I cooked it keeping the same amount of lemon, but added honey over the top (2tsp). Added chorizo and courgette as advised below, and served alongside the yellow rice. A new firm favourite in our house, my 2 year old ate everything and almost licked the plate clean. I would like to have more veggies in it next time, maybe some peppers thrown in too.

I'm not sure if what I got were particularly large chicken thighs but after the full 45 minute cooking time the chicken still had the same texture as that of raw chicken, something to be cautious of.

You did something wrong, don't know what? Chicken thighs would be cooked through on a hob in half that time. You definitely done something wrong.

Excellent.....added sherry, olives and baby toms. The children loved it the lemon made it extra special.

Is this really 701 calories per serving? It seems very high for the ingredients used.

Yes this is correct, if you want to reduce the amount of calories then you can use chicken breast or remove the skin from the thighs first.

Probably due to the skin on. But as we know its not the calories that we should be concerned about its the carbs, sugar and un-natural fats. This is a very popular dinner in our house.
