Good, every day recipe - the lemon worked well with the courgettes and everything cooked to perfection. If anything though, I did find it slightly bland & rather too beige... not sure what might brighten it up...

I am going to try adding pesto to liven it up.

This dish has so much potential and I love the fact you don't need to seal the chicken first, but by the end of the meal, I was finding it a bit too greasey from all the fat given off by the chicken thighs. I would be tempted to trim off any excess skin on the thighs next time or use skin on breasts.

Made 1/2 quantity for 2 today. Potatoes & garlic from the garden. Easy, very tasty and light on washing up afterwards. Will definitely do this again and again.

This was yummy and really easy to make - ideal for a mid week dinner. I'd put a little more stock in it next time.

Summer time in Malta is fantastic, but not for baking in the oven!! I still bake this receipe by putting all the ingredients onto a baking sheet with a piece of aluminuim foil underneath, wrap everything up and cook it on the BBQ! That keeps my kitchen from becoming too hot!
