Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • Jane on February 13, 2018

    I'm surprised that Nigel says "This is one of my all-time favorites for a good, easy, midweek supper. What especially appeals is that although the sauce tastes rich and almost creamy, it has no butter of cream in it at all." This isn't going to be a favorite for me. It was quite acidic from the lemon juice and very liquid, not close to "creamy". Now, I did use 4 thighs rather than 8 but mine are big and one thigh per person is enough. It was slightly better the second night when I cut the chicken off the bone into pieces and served with egg noodles, but still not a recipe I plan to repeat.
