Absolutely delicious. I used chicken supremes and dried oregano, popped in a courgette, red onion, green and red pepper and omitted the olives as nobody likes them. Served with crusty french stick. Would make again.

So easy and delicious! Looks stunning when you bring it out for a crowd. Can also add some onion chunks or shallots and chunks of pepper. Don't forget some nice bread to soak up the delicious juices.

I have made this recipe on numerous occasions. It is very simple to make but delivers on flavour. I add red onions, garlic and use fresh thyme in place of the oregano, and replace the red wine vinegar with lemon juice and throw the lemon in for good measure.

This is so easy! and delicious too. Added a few mushrooms as they needed to be used up. Have made a couple of times and will be a firm favourite for a simple, tasty meal in future.

This is fab! Great family dish because you can just throw everything in without any effort. Lots of flavour. I added so e courgettes too. Auvergne would work also.

Excellent dish. I have made it a couple of times now. Couldn't get fresh oregano, so used dried. The flavour is delicious and it's easy to do.
