Chicken with chorizo

Difficulty Level: Easy

Chicken & Chorizo Bake


Serves: 6

* 2 tablespoons rapeseed oil

*12 chicken thighs with skin and bone still on

*750 grams chorizo (whole if baby ones or cut into 4cm / 1½ inch chunks if regular sized)

*1 kilogram new potatoes (halved or winter potatoes cut into small chunks)

*2 red onions (peeled and roughly chopped)

2 teaspoons dried oregano

Grated zest of 1 orange


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 7/425ºF. Put the oil in the bottom of 2 shallow roasting tins, 1 tablespoon in each. Rub the skin of the chicken in the oil, then turn skin-side up, 6 pieces in each tin.
  2. Divide the chorizo sausages and the new potatoes between the 2 tins. Sprinkle the onion and the oregano over, then grate the orange zest over the contents of the 2 tins.
  3. Cook for 1 hour, but after 30 minutes, swap the top tray with the bottom tray in the oven and baste the contents with the orange-coloured juices.
