Ingredients:

  • 3-4 Chicken thighs (or a mix of breast – with skin on, wings, legs would also work)
  • 6 Sausages (high pork content)
  • Chorizo (I use 10cm of a sausage shape, chopped into about 6 pieces, but add as much or as little as you like)
  • 2 Baking potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • 3 sprigs of Rosemary
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Recipe:

  1. Preheat the over to 200 °C.
  2. Disperse the meat (chicken, chorizo and sausages) in a large rectangular baking dish.
  3. Dice the potatoes into 2cm square pieces and squeeze into the dish around the meat until tightly wedged.
  4. Sprinkle over sprigs of rosemary, and season with a pinch of salt and a few twists of freshly ground pepper from a height.
  5. Using a fine grater, zest the lemon and sprinkle this over the chicken pieces.
  6. Drizzle over a couple of glugs of olive oil (perhaps 3-4 tablespoons in total)
  7. Put in the middle of the oven for 50minutes.Everything should be golden brown on top by this time, but if not whack up the heat to 220°C and put back for another 10-15minutes.
  8. I served mine with a handful of baby carrots and green beans (2 of your 5-a-day), but any veg will do.
