Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.
Spanish Chorizo, Chicken, Vegetable & Butter Bean Tray Bake
You probably know by now that I’m a massive chorizo fan, & so when the Spanish Chorizo Consortium invited me to take part in its #CookingChorizo campaign & create a recipe to feature in it’s cook book, I jumped at the chance. Take a look at the Spanish Chorizo Consortium’s website https://chorizoespanol.es/en/home-english/ for more inspiration. Some of my favourite chorizo recipes include Flamenco Eggs, Paella, Chicken & Chorizo Pasta & Spanish Pork, Chorizo & Chickpea Stew. Chorizo works brilliantly with white fish too. But I decided this time to make a Spanish inspired traybake pairing the chorizo with fresh veggies, chicken & butter beans. You know how I love one pan cooking! Brown the chicken then add all the other ingredients and roast in the oven. So simple!
Prep: 10 minutes
Cooking: 35 minutes
Total: 45 minutes
4 Chicken Supremes ( or use 4 breasts or 8 thighs, preferably skin on)
4 Spanish Chorizo Sausages sliced
4 garlic cloves left whole but crushed
2 sweet potatoes cut in 4cm chunks
1 large red onion cut into wedges
2 red peppers cut into 4cm chunks
150g vine tomatoes halved
400g butter beans drained
1 tsp Fennel seeds crushed
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp sherry or red wine vinegar
Salt & Pepper
Fresh Thyme to serve
Heat the oven to 180 fan, 200 conventional.
Heat an oven proof pan on the hob and add the oil. Season the chicken and sear skin side down for 5 minutes. Set aside.
Add all the Spanish Chorizo, vegetables (apart from the tomatoes), spices & butter beans to the pan.
Add the chicken portions. Make sure every ingredient has a good coating of the spices.
Add the vinegar and season. Make sure the skin of the chicken sits proud, then add the halved tomatoes.
Roast for 40 minutes turning the vegetables and chorizo once during the cooking time.
Finish with fresh thyme.
