Ingredients
 

  • 4 chicken legs, cut in two, chop the knuckles from the drumstick, so you have a bare bone
  • 200 g cooking chorizo, skinned and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 large red pepper, chopped into 1cm pieces
  • 1 yellow pepper, chopped into 1cm pieces
  • 2 small onions , finely chopped

  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • pinch chilli flakes

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 200C gas 6.
  • Heat a large ovenproof pan with the olive oil.
  • Season the chicken pieces well with salt and ground pepper.
  • Brown nicely, then remove from the pan.
  • Next, add the chorizo and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes, so the beautiful red oil comes out of the chorizo.
  • Add the peppers and onions and brown well.
  • Next, add the rice and coat well with the peppers and onions.
  • Add the paprika, chilli and water and stir well.
  • Place the chicken pieces on top and push down slightly.

  • Cook for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and the rice has absorbed all the stock.

  • When ready to serve, break up the rice and chicken and cover with lots of chopped parsley.
  • Serve with lemon wedges and extra paprika as a seasoning in you want.
