I have:
- Chicken quarters
- a few potatoes
- courgettes
- salad (green leaf, tomatoes, cuc and salad onions)
- chorizo
- creme fraiche....

and I need to use/combine something from the above for a tasty supper tonight!

Ideas anyone?

Roast the chicken, pots, courgettes and chorizo together And serve with salad?

Do you have any peppers or onions? Roast chicken, chorizo, peppers and onions. Serve with salad and roast potatoes.

As an alternative:

cook the chicken, potatoes and chorizo in a saute pan with a lid. Throw in a glass of white wine, sherry or vermouth if you have one. Chop the tomatoes and courgettes, add to the pan and simmer until the chicken and potatoes are cooked and the tomatoes and courgettes have dissolved into the juices. Add a couple of spoonfuls of creme fraiche and season.

Serve with a green salad and, ideally, some crusty bread

All in one tray? Hmm, yes, because the oil from the chorizo will coat the veg nicely. I have onions but sadly no peppers, but maybe a deseeded chilli will fire it all up a bit.....

Creme fraiche tomorrow!

The roast it up all approach was a triumph, thanks. Perfect easy week night supper.


vixsatis - I didn't see yours until just now. Sounds very nice too.
