Spanish inspired Chicken and Chorizo bake
A beautiful dish made with simple ingredients like chicken, chorizo, olives with a splash of red wine, this meal can be a delicious meal for your dinner date or when you invite guests over. Impress everyone with this Chicken dish with not much work involved, no who doesn't like a easy yet super impressive dish?
It’s so easy to make but the outcome is super tasty and delicious. We loved this meal at home, it turned out so so good. The star of this dish is using s good quality wine, I have used La Celia Malbec and it worked perfectly well for this dish and also enjoyed a glass with the meal itself.
The use of good quality ingredients is all that matters in any recipe, so when you buy chorizo make sure you have the best one. I found mine in my local Tesco. I would recommend making this on a cast iron pan it’s gives a good colour to the chicken and then you can pop it in the oven, then from there straight to table, however You can even make this in a non stick pan too.
Serve this with grilled warm sourdough bread or even with rice, both are are options I loved mine with toasted sourdough, it was delicious to dip the bread in the sauce and enjoy it. It’s suitable for home freezing, freeze it on the day you make it. It’s so easy to put together and hardly takes much preparation time. The cooking time is all that takes. You can pop it in the oven and sip a cup of tea while it cooks.
Hope you enjoy this. Please leave a comment or tag me on social media if you make it, I would love to see your creations. Please remember to use my hashtag #soulfulandhealthy
