My chicken thighs shrank down quite alot, so would recommend three per person if you have a hungry crowd (especially if you buy them from the supermarket as opposed to the butchers).

No occasion - just something different for supper.I used left over red wine - pinot noir reserve which I had frozen in ice cube trays - very handy!! fantastic for using in any stews etc.

Absolutely delish! However I doubled this and it fed 4! Perhaps they are just greedy.
