Recipe: World's easiest roast chicken meal

I owe this recipe to Donna Hay and her "Fast Simple Fresh" show on the Lifestyle Channel.  When I saw it on TV I couldn't believe how easy it was, so I just had to try it.  
The flavours in this recipe are even more sensational than the lack of prep time involved.  I think this is known as a WIN!!  The chorizo infuses all of the other ingredients and makes it incredibly swoon-worthy, so much so that I have been telling everyone about this recipe, including my hair dresser.  He recently served it for a Sunday lunch with friends and apparently it was a big hit. I think that means I will get an extended head massage at my next appointment ;-)

1 whole chicken but into pieces.  Or if you're lazy like me, use 6 drumsticks, 6-8 chicken wings, maryland pieces (skin on) and chicken thighs
2 chorizo sliced lengthwise
1 punnet cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup Sicilian olives
1 lemon, cut into 4 pieces, lengthwise
1 head of garlic, cloves removed into pieces but skin on
Thyme or oregano
Olive oil
Salt & pepper to season

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
(You will love this): throw everything in the tray. Drizzle a little olive oil over the contents. Season. 

Put in oven for 45 minutes.  Remove, eat and I dare you not to swoon!  Serves 4, always try and make more to have some leftovers.  We never do.

  1. Lisa that's a great recipe, am going to try it! Need to get myself some fresh herbs from Rita's sustainable veggie stall and her cherry tomatoes. Simple recipes are great and thanks to Donna Hay too. Ester
