The Accidental Locavore makes an easy chicken recipe with potatoes and chorizo. A fast main course chicken dinner with a Spanish twist.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 chicken thighs (bone-in with skin)
  • 6oz Spanish chorizo, cut into 1/2 inch disks
  • 1lb small potatos, cut in quarters (I used both red and Yukon gold potatoes)
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1/2 inch dice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano (if you have fresh, use about 2 teaspoons, finely chopped)
  • 1 small orange, zested


Step 1
Preheat the oven to 425°. Put the oil in the bottom of a shallow roasting pan (I used a hotel pan--rimmed cookie sheet). Rub the skin of the chicken in the oil, then turn skin-side up, salt and pepper the skin side.
Step 2
Add the chorizo and potatoes, tossing to coat with the oil. Sprinkle the onion and the oregano on top, then zest the orange over everything.
Step 3
Cook for 1 hour, basting every 20 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
