Chicken Chorizo Stew
Our Spanish casserole follows the traditional combination of meat, beans and tomatoes that is typical of many stews eaten in Spain.
Sprinkle the paprika over the chicken thighs and cook quickly, until the skin is golden brown and the meat is sealed, remove from the pan and place in a casserole dish. Remove excess fat and then add the sliced chorizo, garlic and chopped onions cook till the chorizo is crisp and the onions are soft. Add the herbs Provencal and cook for a minute or two. Drain the beans, and add them, with the tomatoes cook for 5 minutes. Add the stock and cook for a further 5 minutes. Add the tomato, chorizo and bean mixture to the chicken and slow cook in the oven till the meat is tender.
