A great recipe which has become a favourite of ours. It's good with chicken breasts instead of thighs too. The only thing that puzzles me is why does it specify whole almonds when they have to be chopped?

Great dish made it a few times now. I use three peppers, a green yellow and red, just to add a little more colour. I also do half red potatoes and half sweet potatoes which gives the dish a bit of variation in my opinion.

This dish became regular in our family. Simple, tasty and not overcooked. Only fennel seeds... I don't feel it adds something. On the other hand, it doesn't spoil the taste. Very acceptable recipe.

Very tasty (if you double up on the herbs and spices) but be warned SLICED POTATOES DO NOT COOK IN 40 MINUTES IN AN OVEN - par-cook them first. Following the recipe my potatoes were COMPLETELY UNCOOKED AND SPOILED THE WHOLE MEAL

Followed this infredient by ingredient and it turned out fantastic. My partner is very fussy about potatoes, but he loved the dish (and this is now one of his favourites). Will definitely cook again!

Followed this to the letter apart ftom the yogurt and thoroughly enjoyed it so will definitely cook it again. Easy and quick for midweek. I think it would only make 2/3 portions so we cooked a little rice to have with so we could have leftovers tomorrow too!

I made this last night, both myself and partner cleared our plates. Having read the other reviews I added a little more spices and used sweet potatoes, i left out the almonds but it was still tasty. I have to stay though that this is not enough for 4, 3 at a push with plenty of sides.

I know the other comments were good, but this was a bit of a let-down. I followed the recipe and it is not really rocket science, but none of us were terribly impressed. The kids just picked through it. It smelled divine as it was cooking but the flavours didn't seem to win through. We wont be doing this one again unfortunately.
