  1. Made this last night. I only had red wine, but I don’t think it made much difference. It was so delicious. Another one to add to my favourites list.

  2. It was delicious. I used black olives instead of green because that’s all I had. Even my son, who doesn’t like olives or mushrooms, came back for seconds. Thanks for a great recipe.

  3. Hi Pauline

    Love your recipes as usual and have all your books!
    Now hubby loves chicken legs and kids only the breasts can I put them in together?
    For how long?
    Thank you
