Chicken & Chorizo Bake Peppers, Sweet Potatoes & Spuds

Jamie Oliver's Chicken & Chorizo Bake from Super Food Family Classics

Both types of potatoes plus peppers mean this dish is jam-packed with vitamin C, a nutrient our bodies use for everything from keeping our teeth and skin healthy to protecting our cells

Takes 1 hour 10 minutes to make

For how many? Serves 4


  • 75g quality chorizo
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 4 chicken thighs, skin on, bone in
  • 2 small sweet potatoes (200g each)
  • 2 jacket potatoes (500g)
  • 2 red onions
  • 2 mixed-colour peppers
  • 1 bunch of fresh flat-leaf parsley (30g)
  • 4 tbsp natural yoghurt
  • cayenne pepper
  • 1 fresh red chilli
  • 2 tbsp whole almonds
  • 1 lemon


Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6. Chop the chorizo, peel the garlic and place both in a blender. Crumble in the stock cube, strip in the rosemary leaves, add the vinegar, then cover with 300ml of boiling water. Put the lid on securely, cover with a tea towel and, holding it in place, blitz until smooth.

Pull the skin off the chicken and discard, then place the thighs in a large roasting tray (30cm x 40cm). Wash all the potatoes (leaving the skins on for extra nutritional benefit) and chop into 3cm chunks. Peel the onions, deseed the peppers, chop them into 3cm chunks too, and add all the veg to the tray. Pick over half the parsley leaves, then pour over the chorizo broth and mix it all together. Cover tightly with tin foil, place over the hob on a high heat for 2 minutes, then pop into the oven. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove the foil, pull the chicken up to the top to get golden, and cook for another 30 minutes, or until bubbling and the chicken and veg are cooked through.

Meanwhile, pick the rest of the parsley leaves on to a plate. Spoon the yoghurt alongside and add a few pinches of cayenne next to it. Finely slice the chilli and almonds and add to the plate, then finely grate over the lemon zest. When the traybake is ready, serve with the plate of garnishes alongside, letting everyone help themselves to yoghurt and sprinkles.
