I made this with 4 chorizo sausages, 8 drumsticks, 250g cherry tomatoes, doubled the garlic and 8 small waxy potatoes cut into wedges. The result was fantastic. An excellent base recipe!

This was absolutely delicious & I will definitely be making it again! I par boiled the wedges & I used baking potatoes. Cooked for the 45 minutes & it came out perfectly. I used chicken breasts without the skin. I'm going to try adding carrots & parsnips to it next time!

\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.

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!

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!
