what will you make for dinner?

Chicken breasts, cooking chorizo, jar of roasted red peppers, gnocchi, cream, tomato passata and freshly baked bread for (hopefully) dipping in the sauce

Interesting challenge.

I'd slice into the chicken breasts to make a pocket, and stuff them with a slice of roasted pepper, and a couple of slices of the chorizo, then bake in the oven.

The rest of the chorizo would be cooked, then the peppers would be sliced into the pan too, along with the passata and some italian herbs ( sorry, going off piste here, but I'm presuming you have a wee herb store). Simmer till a little thickened, season with pepper and let sit whilst the chicken finishes cooking and the gnocchi cook. Stir in a little of the cream into the tomato/chorizo sauce, stir in the gnocchi and then serve in big flat bowls with a chicken breast on top of each plate.

I'd make 'lasagna surprise' grin

I'd basically do the same but there would be a LOT of garlic and a LOT of cream!

Yeah, I'd need the garlic too. And I'd probably add a shake or two of smoked paprika, just in case the chorizo didn't have enough, and a whole lotta fresh basil at the end....
