    The most delicious dish ever! This dish is a regular at our home. It's so full of flavour, the chicken falls off the bone and once you have the first spoon you won't be able to stop!

    Heavenly chicken - very moist and flavoursome. Not sure it's quite up to Sunday lunch because it does rather look a mess, but absolutely worth doing if you want cooked chicken meat for other dishes. I think I am likely to do this again and again.....

    This is a really nice dish for a Sunday lunch. Warm and hearty and it smells wonderful while cooking - just like my grandmother's chicken soup! I followed the basic recipe as this was my first time making this, but may try following one of Nigella's variations next time as I did find this ever so slightly bland. Still, the chicken was so soft and juicy that it was falling off of the bones as I lifted it out of the pan. I'm looking forward to the leftovers.

    Works every time yielding gorgeous moist chicken, particularly good in Nigella's Chicken Caesar Salad. I've even done it in the slow cooker whilst I'm out at work with excellent results. I tend to use the resulting stock for soup or risotto. Stock particularly good in Nigel Slater's Roast Chicken Risotto from "Real Food", using the Sunday leftovers.
