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
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.
