Balsamic Chicken and Chorizo

Balsamic Chicken and Chorizo
I made this dish again as a quick and no fuss meal. It’s quite healthy served with steamed broccoli or couscous. Alternatively you can have it with pan fried potatoes or sweet potato wedges.

Calories 816
204 per portion
Serves 4
4 medium chicken fillets
A finger length piece of chorizo sausage
1 red, 1 green and one yellow pepper
1 large onion
2 garlic cloves
5 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
100ml chicken stock
1 teaspoon of dried mixed herbs
Sea salt & black pepper


Preheat oven at 180°c. Drizzle some olive oil in a roasting tray, cut the chicken fillets in half lengthways and season them and place in tray. Slice the chorizo and add to the tray also.
Peel and slice the onion, de-seed the peppers and cut into thin strips. Bang the garlic with the back of knife, this releases the flavour more.
In a pan put a splash of oil and add your sliced onion and stir fry for a few mins until softened. Add in the peppers and garlic, fry for another minute then tip the mixtures over the chicken in the roasting tray.
Pour over the stock and balsamic vinegar, sprinkle over the herbs and roast in oven for 30 mins. Halfway through the cooking time, give it all a good stir around and spoon the juices over the top.

Check that the chicken is cooked through before serving.
