Other ideas

The beauty of this dish is that you can dress it up or down according to your taste and what you have available. Add as many or as little veggies as you like, mushrooms, chopped peppers, courgette, fresh tomatoes left on the vine all go well in this dish. Add new potatoes when in season. Sprinkle over some cheese, manchego, being Spanish, goes well with the chorizo but any cheese will work. Tuck some lemon wedges under the chicken for a citrus infusion.

Absolutely loved this recipe. Easy and super tasty. - 22 Aug 2014


This is a nice dish, but I wouldn't say it's fantastic. I added chopped carrots, sweet potato, courgettes, aubergine and mushrooms. At the end of cooking I added mozzerella pearls for a few minutes till they melted. - 29 Apr 2012
