Really simple to make. We added twice as much chilli as recommend and served with a side of steamed brocolli

Delicious for a mid week meal. The chicken was uber juicy!... really speedy too! Next time I think I might put some philly or perhaps some low fat mozzarella in the chicken but it was lovely without.

Thoroughly enjoyed, I did a mix of sweet and ordinary potatoes, which was lovely. Only complaint is that the portion size was a bit on the small side - but that could have been because it was so nice we wanted more!

This was so simple yet so good! While cooking on the same tray as the wedges, the chorizo released its juices which gave even more flavor to the already delicious wedges.
