500g/1lb 2oz baby Maris Piper potatoes, evenly chopped
3 mixed peppers, deseeded and each cut into about 16 chunks
300g/11oz bag shallots, peeled and cut in half
200g/7oz chorizo ring
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp olive oil
8 chicken thighs
crusty bread, to serve


Heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.

Place the potatoes around the edge of a large roasting tray and scatter the pepper chunks evenly within them. Mix the shallots with the peppers.

Remove the ends of the chorizo, cut the ring into thick slices, roughly the width of two £1 coins, and add to the tray.

In a cup, mix the paprika, chilli, and oilve oil. Pour half this mixture over the vegetables. Use your hands to ensure they are all coated in the oile and move the potatoes back to the edges of the tray.

Place the chicken thighs on top of the peppers, chorizo, and onions, skin side up. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the chicken. Cook in the oven for 1 hour, or until the chicken is cooked through. Drain any excess oil from the chorizo from the tray before serving with crusty bread.
