I'm afraid i tried this recipe and it didn't turn out so good. the potatoe didn't really cook on the top, and i left it in longer to try and get them cooked.

A very easy recipe with brilliant results. The chicken was tender and very tasty. Although I did find that I had to add more liquid than the recipe called for. After one hour of cooking I drained off some the the liquid to make a sauce to compliment the dish which worked brilliantly. Will definitely be cooking this again.

I used chicken thighs which I browned first, then cooked the onions and mushrooms in the pan the chicken was in, removing excess oil first. Once coloured, I added chopped rosemary then deglazed the pan with the cider. I added the chicken pieces back to the pan then topped up with stock before seasoning. Rather than adding sliced potatoes on top, I added chunks to the liquid and cooked on the hob with the lid on for 30 minutes.
