I don't think the oranges add much to this dish - or perhaps they need to cook longer for the flavours to merge? otherwise, a nice tasty dish that's easy to prepare. I used celeriac instead of potatoes, which worked well

This is a well used recipe in my home, great for a tasty and easy dinner. No one in the family likes olives but we still add them for the flavour and it's great. One great thing about this recipe is that you can tailor it to different people's tastes. For example, I add aubergine for myself and cherry tomatoes for my husband. I always cube the potatoes and parboil them to get them to cook - takes a bit more time and equipment but it's the only way to get them to cook! For this reason, I'm knocking off one star from the rating.

Tried this for two people so halved the quantities, will definitely do it again but will add red onions and button mushrooms. Didn't add the black olives as I wasn't sure we'd enjoy them, cooked some separate so we could try them without affecting the taste of the main dish

Nice flavours but I cut potatoes small and they still took ages to cook so the chicken was dry. Might try it again without the potatoes!

I made this again but I used white fish instead of chicken, lemons instead of oranges and cherry tomatoes instead of olives - and again it was lovely!

This was very tasty and so easy although we did have to adjust the cooking times a little as the potatoes weren't cooked through in the time stated. Next time I would slice the potatoes and oranges more thinly and probably use fresh thinly sliced peppers instead of bottled, and chuck it all in at the beginning of stage 3. We also used chicken thighs which worked well and gave good flavour. Destined to become a weekday staple in our house, I think.

Fantastic, loved it. Wonderful flavours and easy to do. Would make a good substitute for sunday lunch. Will try it with fish and lemon next time.

What an easy, tasty meal! Wasn't sure about the oranges, but they added a really nice flavour. Will be making this again for sure! It needed about an extra 10mins in the oven to get the potatoes nicely browned and I served it with gravy.

This is delicious - reminds me of Jamie O's pork, potato, parsnip and pear traybake. I swapped the new potatoes for chopped up sweet potatoes and use chicken thighs as I don't see the point of chicken breasts! Will definitely make again.

Why cannot I print of the recipes anymore? My computer is not near my kitchen. I have arthritis in my hands and it's very difficult for me to write down the recipes.
