Very tasty. We cooked this as a main course, served with rice, rotis, yoghurt and mango chutney. You really get the flavour of the lime coming through. We did bake 10 minutes longer, as it wasn't cooked through in the suggested 25 minutes.

Really quick to make and very tasty. Used sliced chicken breast and served with the one pan spicy rice on this site.

Absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe to the letter. I did turn them half way through to brown on both sides. Served as a starter with mango chutney when I had girlfriends over for a thai themed dinner party. They went down a treat!

Made this the other night. Very quick, easy and tasty. Had enough left over for lunch the next day - yummy!

Really quick and easy to make. Literally took 5 mins to mix it all together and get it in the oven. Loads of flavour. Didn't have any chutney but served with brown rice and veg. Will make again for a no-effort midweek meal.
