\yes I agree with many of the other comments... we enjoyed the recipe but it definitely needs something to give it a bit more kick, so next time I'll add a bit of Cajun and more chorizo and put the potatoes and chicken in the oven 10 minutes before the rest of the ingredients.

Everyone in my family adores this and it has become one of my staple dishes.

Just delicious. Doubled the garlic and onions because we love them. Have been told I must make this again.. oh not to mention it was very easy to prepare.

Very easy and a great success with the family. Cooked it for an hour as per suggestions and poured off the oil from the tray at about 45mins. Everything crisped up well, the potatoes were fabulous and the chicken skin was amazing! Will definitely be doing this again!

Lovely easy midweek supper, added red pepper & courgette - will add some paprika next time for a little more flavour. Definatley saved to my favourites!

Delicious. Added red pepper and green olives as per suggestions and used quartered new potatoes. Still took longer than suggested time in oven. Girls (2 & 4) loved it although we left out the chorizo from theirs as I'd chosen a very spicy chorizo!

It won't let me rate the recipe, but I'd give this 4 stars. I followed the advice to par boil the potatoes first and cooked for about 60mins. Very tasty. Next time I shall add slightly more onion plus a red pepper.

Took a while to prepare but was DELICIOUS! Is now a regular - easy to cook more for a crowd.

This was very easy to throw together- will definitely make again. Saw some of the earlier comments and make some adjustments. Parboiled the potatoes and used dry oregano mixed in with a tbsp of olive oil to brush over the chicken. Cooked for an hour- turned out fab!

Very easy one pot dish - I spread the chicken pieces with chipotle paste to give an extra kick.

Love this dish. Cut the potatoes smaller and they will cook in time, also make sure the chorizo is under the pots and chicken, then it wont burn!! I will add some peppers next time, sound good.

Definitely par boil the potatoes or cut more thinly than usual wedges as the chorizo can 'catch' a bit if you need to cook the dish for longer due to chunky potatoes. Tasty, filling and family friendly.

This is a delicious quick & easy mid week meal. I have made this a good hour & a half ahead of time, covered with foil and cooked on a lower heat, towards the end remove foil to crisp up! That way every thing cooks nicely with the required crisping up at the end! Yum yum!

Used some of the suggestions above, par-boiled the potatoes for 5mins before putting the dish in. Also added orange zest & some fresh thyme. A must do again recipe. In my oven it actually only took 40mins & that was using thighs & legs. Added olives & green pepper as well, made a very hearty tea-time meal.

very nice dish, i had no rosemary so instead used other herbs and spices!! still turned out very tasty. I cooked for correct time and everything was good apart from the chorizo which partly burnt not a problem though.

I made some changes to this recipe based on other reviews. I chopped the potatoes up quite small and put them in 15 mins before the rest of the ingredients. I used chicken breast chopped into chunks and added red pepper and some chopped carrot as well.

The chorizo certainly gives it all a nice flavour but it would have burnt if it had gone in at the beginning. Using oil as well really makes it far too oily. Next time I wouldn't use any- the chorizo provides enough.

Really tasty supper, although the potatoes did require extra cooking. Next time I will parboil them prior to adding to the rest of the ingredients.

I agree with the other comments about the cooking times, they are abit out and it meant that some of my ingredients (particularly the chorizo) were overcooked and the potatoes still weren't crispy enough for my liking.
