Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Cut the chorizo into slices the thickness of a pound coin. Put the onion and garlic in the bottom of a large roasting tin. Scatter over the chorizo, then add the chicken pieces, potato, rosemary and a couple of grinds of black pepper. Drizzle with olive oil, then bake for 45 mins.
  2. Halfway through the cooking time, give everything a good baste in the chorizo juices.

loved the flavour but we found the dish very over oily because of the chorizo, we'll probably drain off some of the oil half way through next time

I was a bit disappointed with this recipe, all these lovely ingrediants and it tasted really bland. I think I made a mistake by using chicken without the skin on, maybe this would have brought all the flavours together. I also think I would have chopped the garlic and added some salt. I'm not giving up on it though will experiment with it.

While my husband appreciates my cooking, and usually says so eventually, he can be quite noncommittal, but he effused over this after the first mouthful, and we look as if we may be on the way to having this three times in one month. The chorizo makes it zing and its sticky texture delights! On top of that, it's almost ridiculously easy to cook.
Try it!

Delicious, and a bonus was that I had all the ingredients hanging around in my cupboards / fridge! Would have tried serving with broad beans had I remembered them. Absolutely lovely anyway, and I will be making this again. So easy.

I make this and it is delicious. I also added red peppers cut into chunks and orange zest, salt flakes and crushed pepper. Also thyme as I don't like rosemary much. I cut the potatoes into chunks and crushed a little to make crispy roast potatoes.

great recipe, I added red and yellow peppers as well. I thought I might try it next time with green olives and a squeeze of lemon.
