I couldn't believe how easy and gorgeous this was when I first made it! Serve it with jacket potatoes or mash or even crusty bread.

This is just wonderful! I didn't have any celery, so left it out. I used 2 chicken legs/thighs,lemon juice, pancetta and regular onions, fresh thyme, chicken stock and a little water, along with the rest of the ingredients. Then I baked it covered for 1 hour. The first words out of DH mouth was "It's a keeper! Lots of flavour and simple easy ingredients. Thanks for sharing.
