    Wow, we thought this was amazing! I used boneless skinless thighs since they were on hand and that shortened the cook time a bit. The sauce is absolutely lovely. Definitely one to repeat.

    I really like this recipe and have made it several times. Easy to make in advance and reheat, or freeze portions and reheat, which suits my current lifestyle. It does take a bit longer to prepare, but my family and visitors have enjoyed it. I would have no hesitation serving this up to visitors.

    This was fine, but I think I've been spoilt by Diana's other chicken recipe from the same book, which have so far had a 'wow' response. As a comfort food, this recipe 'works', but it didn't quite impress.

    I made this for a dinner party of fussy eaters, and it went down well. But this dish takes longer than you think because of the sauce-reducing part and quite a few steps involved to get to the finished dish. Nice, creamy comforting dish but don't do it for a dinner party! Or plan well, and start cooking in good time! :-)
