Succulent chicken thighs roasted with figs and lemon slices makes for a satisfying and impressive Mediterranean-inspired meal. The slightly sweet and sour sauce is perfect to serve with rice, and helps to caramelise the figs and lemon. Easy, delicious and if you feel the sauce isn't enough it can easily be doubled.

This recipe uses chicken legs, but works for part, or indeed a whole chicken. It goes well with roasted potatoes.

A whole chicken is rubbed inside and out with dried herbs, then roasted with lemon and olive. Simple but very delicious.

Just tried this today and thought I'd share. I served it with plain rice and veg, but I'm sure it'd be nice with new potatoes and fresh vegetables as well! I have a large family with lots of little children who only eat small portions (this fed 2 adults, 5 children and 1 baby). However, it'd be more suitable I think for 2-4 adults or similar. It was very subtle in taste.

A whole chicken sprinkled with fresh lemon and paprika is cooked slowly with lemon halves inside. This recipe is very easy and the chicken always stays tender and moist.

Easy herbed chicken in creamy sauce, slow cooked on the hob, has an amazing flavour! The pan liquid is also excellent over pasta or mash.

A savoury lemon sauce seasoned with a hint of sesame tastes fabulous with tender chicken and crunchy Oriental vegetables. Serve plain egg noodles or rice to add some satisfying starchy carbohydrate.

I nearly always have a few lemons in the fridge, so I end up making this chicken dish when I'm in a hurry. It's really quick to make and always reminds me how good lemon and chicken are together.
