    Such a versatile recipe. I used chicken breast and added garlic and green beans. We served this with rice. Was delicious!

  2. Loved this recipe, easy to do, added steamed green beans with the olives in the last 30 minutes. Next time thinking of adding some chillie flakes to give a bit more spiciest. Served with rice.

  3. Made this for the family while babysitting last Friday. We had it with basmati rice. So easy and so totally delicious. Thank you.

  4. Hi my children only like chicken breast. If I used this how long do I cook it for?
    Thanks so much

  5. Hi Pauline

    Short on time today … is it possible to cook 2hrs on high? Or won’t it turn out the same?
    Thanks so much again
    Louisa ?
