    Did not have waxy potatoes and there was a terrible storm outside, so just parboiled a cut up large russet for half of the recipe. Very simple and very easy, just assembled and put in oven and it was delicious.

    Classic Diana Henry: quick and easy, features olive oil, lemon, garlic, thyme, capers. The result was delicious. I cut my small waxy potatoes (Noirmoutier) into quarters and there was no problem with them cooking in time (I did give the dish an extra 10 minutes because the chicken thighs were huge).

    Nice, but I wish I had read these reviews first. My potatoes needed a LOT of extra time to cook through and I cut them quite small. Would make again.

    Easy and delicious - especially as I happened to have a Meyer lemon which I decided to use for this, and can highly recommend! One note, the potatoes need to be cut up fairly small or they won't cook in time.

    Another full flavoured success from this book. The lemon, thyme and caper combination is so delicious.

    My second recipe in a week from this book and this is another dead simple, flavour packed winner! I added some broccolini in the last 10 mins for some green. Great for a weeknight because it needs no marinading or searing, just throw it in the oven and let it do it’s thing.

    Delicious. I started the potatoes 15 minutes early to be sure they cooked through, and didn’t move the lemon slices on top of the thighs for the last ten minutes because I was worried that it would make the skin less crispy. The capers and thyme gave it a lovely slightly floral note, and of course lemon and capers are always great together. So little work, and a complete and delicious meal on one tray.

    I used all-purpose potatoes, rather than buying waxy specifically. Very simple and really tasty. Very little preparation time and then 40 minutes in the oven. We had it with buttered steamed broccoli.
