It's very rare that I write reviews but I've made this recipe many times now and I absolutely love it. I've always followed the recipe but use a tin of chopped tomatoes as others reviewers suggested. I've also realised that I've somehow neglected to add parsley each time I've made it but I can't say that's it's short on flavour from this. I daren't add it now in case it changes the flavour from what I'm used to. This is truly a fab tasting recipe which is so so quick and easy to make and I'm surprised it doesn't have more reviews than this, amazing!

Have made this recipe several times and it always tastes wonderful. Tonight I used a small handful of cherry tomatoes and some puree, sometimes I just use the puree, but it always turns out well. If I don't have enough chorizo I add extra paprika and chilli flakes. Also nice with a couple of handfuls of baby spinach thrown in at the end.

An absolute winner every time. This is a fabulous recipe with just a few simple ingredients but tastes fantastic. A firm favourite for the whole family.

This was a very tasty recipe. Full of flavour and really nice on a cold evening. We didn't change a thing from the recipe and it was delicious with a bit of fresh bread.

Absolutely beautiful - and that comes from a family who regularly eat Spanish food.

I added extra fresh tomatoes and also a tin of "chopped tomatoes with chilli" to give it a kick. Also added a fair bit of smoked paprika and some garlic pepper x

Fab fab fab.
Reckon this serves 3 rather than 4 (perfect for me & husband dinner & 1 leftover portion). Would serve with bread and salad if serving 4.
Will definitely be cooking again. So tasty & easy :-)

A - maze- ing so full of flavour and easy to make, I added a pinch if cayenne pepper for extra spice and I had some rosemary focaccia in the freezer and we mopped up the juices with that. It is on my to make again list. Hubby loved it. An al fresco meal as well as a warming winter dish.

This is now in our family favourites! Made changes as others did. used chicken breast instead of thighs, used a tin of chopped tomatoes, added 2 gloves garlic and 1/2 tsp smoked paprika and 1/2 tsp hot paprika and served with dumplings. Utterly delicious!

Made this for my family (two children aged 14 and 7). Used 7 chicken thighs and in order to make the sauce thicken, I added more cannellini beans, and a bit more potato. Also, since I had no tomato, used tomato puree. Served with some curly kale and a homemade crusty loaf. Went down very well and leftovers sufficient to freeze for a quick meal for me and my husband.

Was full of flavour and the chunky chorizo was delicious. Only added a little paprika. About to make another batch to freeze.

Excellent recipe. Used chicken breasts instead of thighs and added two fat chopped garlic cloves, two tspn smoked paprika and a pinch of dried chillies. My husband said he would like this one "every two weeks please!"

Delicious, really easy and quick. Had to use butter beans as no cannellini in the supermarket. Added some garlic, and extra potato. Looking forward to the leftovers for lunch!

Superb recipe! I had some chicken and chorizo, and wanted something different to do with it.

Amendments:

- I couldn't get cannelini beans so I used butter beans- delicious!
- I had a lot less chorizo than recommended and a bit less chicken, so I added two tomatoes and three potatoes to fill it out nicely, worked a treat
- Added about 2 teaspoons of paprika, lovely flavour
- Bit of salt and pepper to bring out the flavour

Definitely a new favourite dish!

This became an instant family favourite. It's so easy to make, and easy to extend by adding your choice of extra ingredients. Even my kids love it - it's not too spicy, the chorizo just gives it a really yummy flavour. And apparently you can eat it the next day or even freeze it, although I'll never know because every last drop gets eaten up right away.

This is so delicious. I've made it a few times and it is always a big hit. I love chorizo so the chunky slices in this are perfect for me. And it tastes even nicer the next day. This is a dish I'll make over and over. Yum yum :)
