Recipe Shed: Lemon & Garlic Chicken with Chorizo Sausage

Well, here we are on week 4 of the Recipe Shed. It’s had a great response and I hope more of you will join in, either by sharing or cooking the recipes posted by fellow Linkers. The theme for this week is SAUSAGES so I’ll get the ball rolling with this incredibly simple dish that is great for all the family.

Recipe Shed

Serves 4

4 chicken thighs, skin on, bone in
4 large potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward’s, peeled and cut into large chunks
1 lemon
1 bulb of garlic, separated into cloves
1 tbsp fresh rosemary or thyme leaves
1 chorizo sausage, skin removed and cut into chunks
1 lemon, quartered
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and parboil the potatoes until tender, approx. 10-12 mins. Drain and reserve.

2. Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4.  Scatter the parboiled potatoes potatoes and toss together with a couple of glubs of olive oil, the herbs , lemon and chorizo.

3. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper and lay them on the potatoes.

4. Roast for 45 mins, until the potatoes are browned, the garlic is soft and the chicken juices run clear. Test by inserting a skewer into the thickest part of the meat.

5. Serve with steamed brocolli. Squeeze the sweet garlic onto the chicken flesh – and enjoy!

  1. May well give this one a try as children now all eating chicken (this has taken some time!). They all love sausages too. Was not sure from your post whether sausages or chicken were the theme so went with sausages as that is what was mentioned as the theme first although it seems to change to chicken at the end or is that just me being dense?
    Just about to add your badge to my post

    Stop making all these lovely recipes, unless you are going to come down here and make it for me! Looks delicious!

  3. This looks delicious – chicken and chorizo is such a great combo. Have you seen this recipe from Beth at Jam and Cream? http://www.jamandclottedcream.co.uk/2011/02/spanish-style-chicken-and-chorizo-stew.html
    It’s a regular feature in my house!

  5. Good one Keith! I love those one pot chicken and potato dishes and with the spicy chorizo? What a combination. I did my dish a few weeks ago but never got around to blogging it. Found the perfect opportunity in your blog to get it out there. Nothing fancy but a good one for a quick, throw together type meal. Might come in handy for you guys now as the weather gets a bit cooler over there.
