You'll need

800 gm small potatoes, such as kipfler, scrubbed and quartered 1 Spanish onion, cut into thin wedges 120 ml extra-virgin olive oil 2 tbsp each coarsely chopped thyme and oregano, plus extra leaves to serve Finely grated rind and juice of 2 lemons 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped 2 tsp smoked paprika 4 chicken Marylands, halved through the joint 2 chorizo, thickly sliced 300 gm cherry tomatoes or small truss tomatoes, cut into clusters 200 ml chicken stock 2 tbsp sherry vinegar, or to taste To serve: crisp leaf salad

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Combine potato and onion in a large roasting pan, drizzle with 60ml olive oil, season to taste and place in oven while you prepare the chicken.
  • 02
  • Pound herbs, rind, garlic and paprika in a mortar and pestle until a paste forms, stir in half the lemon juice and remaining oil. Transfer to a bowl with chicken, stirring to coat well, and stand to marinate for 10 minutes.
  • 03
  • Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add chicken pieces and cook, turning once until browned (2 minutes on each side). Add to roasting pan with chorizo and tomatoes, drizzle with any remaining marinade and return roasting pan to oven.

  • Meanwhile, return frying pan to medium-high heat, deglaze with stock and simmer until slightly reduced (1-2 minutes). Add remaining lemon juice, season to taste and pour into roasting pan. Cook until potato is tender and chicken is cooked through (20-25 minutes).
