Easy midweek meal

Gosh - where has this morning gone?  I meant to write my post first thing as usual but then got side-tracked by dropping off cakes at the community centre, taking the dog for his long walk, household chores... Anyway, here I am :-)  And no deep questions today, promised!  That was a bit morbid for a Monday, wasn't it? :-)  Something altogether more cheerful is today's recipe:

Chorizo chicken...
I stumbled across this Nigella Lawson one the other day and I think you might like this: chorizo chicken.   I have adapted it slightly to be less fatty but I think this is a brilliant tray bake sort of meal that can be put together in no time and tastes delicious.  What can be easier than chucking a lot of raw ingredients into a roasting tin with some seasoning and roasting it all in the oven?

Chorizo Chicken (serves 4)

6 - 8 chicken thighs (bone in with skin) or other chicken portions such as drumsticks, legs,...
150g chorizo sausage, cut into chunks
600g potatoes, cut into chunks (if using small new potatoes, just halve these)
1 red onion (peeled and roughly chopped) 
1 - 2 bell peppers (any colour), deseeded & cut into chunks
1 tsp dried oregano
salt & pepper

Optional: a little orange zest



  1. This is such a coincidence but I have that Nigella recipe printed out in my recipes to try binder already! I love that you have already made and tested it. I will trust your suggestions and follow your recommended amounts. I may buy the ingredients this weekend.

    1. Oh, that's just too funny! Well, we must have very similar taste :-). The recipe is lovely & I'm sure you'll like it when you try it! Kirsten x
