Keep the family warm this winter with this delicious chicken and chorizo bake. I have been making variations on this theme ever since I started employing a steam oven (well, even before that in my regular oven, though it's far better wiped out the combi steam oven). the first idea for this particular marriage of flavors came from Nigel Slater – I can’t find a web link anymore but have a hand scrawled recipe for something titled Pumpkin Pan Fry which originally used bacon instead of sausage.

And that I know we just talked about Mr Slater and his recipes a few of weeks ago, but what am I able to say, I even have a food crush on the person. Eventually count I had 8 of his books in my collection, this one is my most cooked from but they’re all great. If you don’t own any of his titles I highly recommend them for both recipes and delightful writing.

As I said earlier, this is often very adaptable. Don’t like pumpkin? Use sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, or cauliflower. Want something green? Add a couple of green beans or broccoli. you'll swap in bacon or pancetta for the chorizo, pork chops or maybe fish for the chicken…hopefully you get the thought . Just adjust once you add things to the oven counting on how long they fancy cook.

For the quantities below i exploit both of my oven’s solid chrome steel trays, as cramming it all onto one means everything stews and you don’t get the great crispy edges which make the dish so good. Investing during a second full-size tray has been really worthwhile on behalf of me , i exploit it all the time (you can buy all manner of various sizes and depths do you have to wish, but my other is simply a rather deeper version of the one which came with my oven - almost like this). If need be you'll cheat with a perforated tray, just cover the bottom with baking paper before you begin .
