I'd be interested to know if anyone else has had any success with recipes from this book?  This is the second one I've tried that I've had disappointing results with.

I attempted the Lemon Chicken & Broccoli Penne last week and I hate to say this but it was totally inedible.

The recipe doesn't specify what type of chicken to use so I used cut up thigh fillets.

Technically the recipe works in that everything is cooked in the amount of time specified but there was just way too much lemon.  I desperately tried to save it by adding additional cream to the ricotta cheese sauce and then even went for garlic-infused olive oil and sesame oil but there was no saving it - it tasted horrible and no-one in the family would eat a second mouthful (including my 23 month old son with a huge appetite)!

Not sure if I did something wrong but unfortunately we had to throw it all out and for this reason I'd have to give it a 0/5.
