Ingredients

    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 8 good-sized skin-on chicken thighs
  • 4 (about 400g) spicy sausages
  • 2-3 roasted red peppers from a jar, depending on their size (Peppadew are good in this)
  • 2 red onions, halved and cut into crescent moon-shaped slices
  • 400g can cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 8 garlic cloves, grated to a purée
  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 4 rosemary sprig, leaves picked from 1, the others left whole
  • 125ml chicken stock

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Heat half the oil in a big shallow casserole dish in which the thighs can lie in a single layer – one 30cm across is ideal, if you use a bigger dish the sauce may evaporate. Quickly brown the chicken on both sides – you don’t want to cook the chicken through, just get some colour on it – then remove from the pan. Do the same with the sausages in the remaining oil, colouring them all over. Cut the sausages on the diagonal into three or four pieces. Drain the peppers of their brine and cut into broad strips.

  2. Add the onions and tomatoes to the dish or roasting tin with the chilli, garlic, seasoning, sherry vinegar, rosemary and sausages. Heat the stock and add that too. Mix everything together. Arrange so that the chicken is on top. Bake in the oven for 30 mins, stirring the ‘sauce’ that forms around the vegetables halfway through.

  3. When 30 mins is up, add the peppers and cook for another 10 mins. The chicken should be cooked through with a thick sauce around it. Serve with rice pilaf, little potatoes that you’ve roasted in olive oil or mashed potato (mash or rice with a little saffron in it would be lovely).

Loved this recipe. My children chose it from the magazine and it was a good choice. Only change I made was adding fresh peppers with the onions and tomatoes.
