This recipe is so good, my husband asked for seconds and he rarely does that, unless it's dessert! I would like to make the suggestion that cooking temperatures be also given in Fahrenheit. I had to cook the dish about 15 minutes longer than the recipe said as I didn't know what temperature the Celcius temperature converted to in Fahrenheit.

I made this for my mum, dad and brother and we all enjoyed. I never put the lemon juice in and throughly enjoyed it anyway. A really light dish.

Added pancetta, sliced courgette and aubergine and used diced chicken breasts. Served with tomato risotto (cheated here and used uncle bens). This made a delicious meal the taste of which my husband and I couldn't get enough of. Will definitely do again.

Chicken was nice but found the whole thing far too oniony as did the rest of the family.

This is a favourite, I have tried adding chorizo, but it didn't really do it for me, I just add as much paprika again - lovely!

This was excellent. So easy to make, just mix it up and put it in the oven. I served it with a courgette and tomato risotto.

i thought this was great and easy to make,the only change i made was to add a bit more stock to give a bit more juice,didn't find it too lemony ( but i did use a small lemon )and the kids loved it so cant be that bad.

This recipe was gorgoeus. So much taste and texture. I added some spanish chorizo and some garlic. I made sure not to cover the chicken to much so the skin turns golden and crisp as the skin is my favourite! The juice was busting with flavour I made sure i poored this over the rice and it all soaks in yummy will make this again
