    Loved this! Doesn't feel that healthy with all that oil, but a great comforting winter dish. I added a tin of creamed corn and bit if chillie sauce. My husband and I thought very tasty. Cut potato very small to cook.  -  29 Jul 2015


    Easy to make but the lemon is really overpowering. The chicken peices were quite tasty but I made the mistake of spooning some of the sauce over before serving. It was however very entertaining watching everyones face when eating it - hilarious in fact  -  14 Jun 2015


    So easy and delicious! I added some cumin and cayenne to spice it up but other than that stayed true to the recipe. I'll definitely make this again.  -  11 Feb 2015
