    These are blooming good! No butter in mine, just olive oil and they were divine. :-)  -  05 Mar 2018


    These were absolutely delicious. I used a dab of clover buttery spread as I have given up butter whilst dieting. I stick to 1000 calories a day and a large tin of cooked new potatoes is only 214 kcal. I put hot and sweet paprika in the herb mix, fresh black pepper, and reduced the oven time by 30 minutes. I served it with tinned tomatoes (90 kcal) and oven cooked Basa Fish Fillet with a lemon and herb batter (253 kcal.) This was a large meal and I added a splash of vinegar and sweet chilli dipping sauce. I am looking forward to the next time when I will use chicken. Thanks Russell.  -  26 Sep 2017
