  1. Olive oil and season the Chicken thighs. then seal the pieces in a hot pan, then transfer to a oven proof dish and cook in the oven for approx 30min at 180c or until just cooked. Remove and cover with foil.

  2. Coarsely chop all the vegetables, Chorizo sausage and Garlic. Except the Mange-tout and add them to a lidded casserole dish and coat them with olive oil, season with salt & pepper. But not the courgettes as these do not need as much cooking. Place in a 180c oven for appox 30min.
