Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Spanish onion, halved and sliced
  • 12 large bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed
  • 225g pack chorizo picante, thickly sliced
  • pack of 3 mixed colour peppers, cut into chunks
  • 150g (drained weight) pitted Spanish pimento stuffed green olives
  • 300ml dry white wine (serve the rest of the bottle with the meal)
  • 300ml chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan. Fry 1 sliced Spanish onion for about 5 mins until golden.

  • STEP 2

    Tip into the slow cooker pot (we used a 6.5-litre model), then fry 12 large bone-in skinless chicken thighs and 225g thickly sliced chorizo picante in the same pan until starting to colour – you will need to do this in two batches.

  • STEP 3

    Add to the slow cooker with 3 mixed colour peppers, cut into chunks and 150g pitted Spanish pimento stuffed green olives.

  • STEP 4

    Tip 300ml dry white wine, 300ml chicken stock and 1 tbsp tomato purée into the pan.

  • STEP 5

    Scrape up any bits stuck to the bottom, then tip into the slow cooker, cover and cook on Low for 6 hrs.
