Looked at the recipe, Broad Beans I cooked separately as 3 minutes is not enough for Frozen Beans. The chicken I did in the oven with olive oil and lemon as I'm so scared of food poisoning. But otherwise my other half loved it but I agree with Rusty, a bit bland and needed garlic and mushrooms to lift the whole dish, like Leah mentioned. Will do my own version next time. :-)

This was a lovely fresh tasting dish, I used left over roast chicken and lime instead of lemon and soya beans to replace broad beans.

Totally agree that is a tasteless dish and won't be repeated.

To bland for my taste buds, this won't be served up again on my dining table.

lovely simple dish, i adapted and used a little double cream with the cooking water, lovage instead of parsley and fresh broad beans. Very Tasty.

Very quick and easy to make although the frozen broad beans had a tough husk when cooked - put me off slightly but the overall taste was very clean and fresh. Would make again but with different veg.
