8chicken thighs(or a mixture of thighs and legs)
Salt and pepper
100gchorizocut into 1 cm chunks
1red peppercut into large chunks – roughly 2cm by 2cm
1red onionsliced into 8 wedges
8garlic cloveslightly bashed with the skins still on
Preheat the oven to 220C / 200C fan / gas mark 7 / 425F.
Put the chicken thighs on a plate and sprinkle over 1 teaspoon of paprika and 1 teaspoon of oregano, add some salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil and rub the marinade all over the chicken.
Put the chorizo, red pepper, red onion, new potatoes and garlic into a large roasting tray and sprinkle over the other teaspoon of paprika and oregano, a couple of twists of salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil (about 2 tablespoons), plus the chilli flakes, if you are using them.
Stir everything together so the chorizo and vegetables are covered in the oil, herbs and spices (use your hands or a large spoon).
Place the chicken on top of the chorizo and vegetables and pop the whole thing in the oven for 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes, remove the tray from the oven, carefully take the chicken pieces off the top and put them on a large plate. Stir the chorizo and vegetables so everything is coated in the delicious juices then pop the chicken back on top.
Tip the tray slightly to reveal the juices and, using a tablespoon, baste each piece of chicken with one tablespoon of juices (you don’t HAVE to do this step, if you haven’t got time, but the chicken will taste A LOT better if you do!)
Scatter over the tomatoes and then put the dish back in the oven and roast for a further 20 minutes.
Serve on its own or with a green salad, some crusty bread and a glass of Spanish Garnacha.
