    Been looking for ways to make potatoes interesting. Found it at last. Full of flavour. Delicious. It didn't object to being allowed to cool and then reheating. Will be using again - 06 Jul 2014


    Very nice. Made in the afternoon and ate in the evening with a shop bought nan. I didn't add any mustard. Think I will use the same recipe for chicken with or without the potatoes. Thanks. - 18 Dec 2016


    Love this recipe! I only had two fresh tomatoes so added 4 tbls tinned. Had to use 1 tbs english mustard as I haven't got mustard powder and used chilli flakes instead of fresh. It was delicious! Will definitely make it regularly, though next time I will go easier on the chilli flakes! Thanks for posting it! - 11 Nov 2016
