    Made this with the optional new potatoes. Quite good - I did add some white wine as another reviewer suggested and I'm glad I did.

    This is a dish you make when you don't feel like cooking but nevertheless want/need something to feed the family. Just put everything into a pot and into the oven it goes. One and a half hours later you have juicy, tender chicken legs with soft basil tomatoes and sweet garlic, all ready to eat. Yum!

    Tasty and extremely easy. It also looked like the photo. I did think it could have used some note of acidity - maybe just adding more tomatoes will do, maybe I'll have to add some vinegar or wine. And the recipe told you to turn over the tomatoes - as that didn't make sense I turned over the chicken instead. Next time start with skin side down so I only have to turn them once.

    Really easy, minimal prep time, and very tasty. I like it even better the next day when flavours have had time to mix. I usually put more cannellini beans in than the recipe calls for.
