Spanish Chicken with Chorizo and Potatoes

  • Preparation Time15 mins
  • Cooking Time60 mins
  • Serves6
  • DifficultyEasy
2 tbsp olive oil
12 chicken thighs (bone in, with skin)
750g chorizo sausages, whole if baby ones, or cut into 4cm chunks if regular-sized
1kg new potatoes, halved
2 red onions, peeled and roughly chopped
2 teaspoons dried oregano
Grated zest of 1 orange

Preheat the oven to 220°C / gas mark 7. Put the oil in the bottom of two shallow roasting tins, one tablespoon in each. Rub the skin of the chicken in the oil, then turn skin-side up, six pieces in each tin.

Divide the chorizo sausages and the new potatoes between the two tins. Sprinkle the onion and the oregano over, then grate the orange zest over the contents of the two tins.

Cook for an 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.
