Used 1 chicken breast, cut and left out the capers. Cooked on Webber BBQ slowly for my hubby and myself. Beautiful and very filling.

Loved this!! The lemon tasted fab with the chicken. Was a hit with the whole family and even master 7 wanted more of the chicken.

I used this recipe for a while chicken, rather than chicken pieces, and loved it. The onions in particular were delicious when all of the tasty flavours had baked into them.
