yummy - I used what I had in so adapted slightly with chicken thighs with bones in, red onion instead of shallotts, chestnut mushrooms chopped, garlic cloves, bacon instead of pancetta and no peas. Served with cubed potatoes. Delish!

Absolutely superb, only thing I did different was add a couple of cloves of garlic with the onions, which were small shallots halved. Best chicken recipe we have tried for ages.

This is really delicious. I used 2 x red onions instead of shallots, and chopped up smoked bacon instead of pancetta. Tasty and easy to make.

This was amazing! :) it was very delicious and tasteful :) Did everything as the recipe except pancetta as I did not have. Will include them though next time. This is a new mid-week favourite. Husband enjoyed it and will definitely do it again.

Delicious and very easy. I added a splash of white wine and a tablespoon of creme fraiche, as I had them the cupboard, didn't have any parsley so used dried rosemary. Served with pasta but I think it would work well with rice or potatoes. Will definitely make it again.
