Easy to make didn't have garam masala so used Chinese 5 spice instead which worked well. Fresh tasting enjoyed by the whole family

Really easy, tasty and good-value family dinner. I did swap the drumsticks for chicken thighs and added a bit more garlic and ginger pastes for a bit more taste. I also added the onion before cooking. Does need a fair amount of salt and pepper.

This recipe is easy to adapt to what you feel like. It seems more of a summer dish now, but in winter it is nice to roast the vegetables too (white onion throughout the bake, tomato and Bell pepper in the last 20 minutes). Can also easily spice it up as desired (I added chili powder and cumin and doubled all spice amounts), or make with boneless thighs. Really tasty!

Doubled the dressing and used 10 chicken legs that needed using up - served it with some extra veg' roasted in a seporate pan and this was an absolute win!

Cooked it last night, absolutely delicious. Even my super fussy 6 years old loved it and asked for more :-)

Super simple to make and really tasty. Filling but not heavy - definitely recommend!

Delicious and really easy to make. Not too heavy that you couldn't enjoy during the summer months. Added some ground cumin in as well
