This would have to be my daughter, Alexia's favourite dish, a very simple one pan dinner that is so easy to make and perfect for a sunday night dinner.

what you need
1 whole large free range chicken cut 1/2
2 chorizo sausages sliced
200mls chicken stock
1 kg potatoes quartered lengthways skin on
1 large onion sliced
2 gloves garlic finely chopped
fresh rosemary chopped finely
fresh oregano chopped finely
olive oil
sea salt & cracked pepper

what to do
Lay potatoes in the base of a heavy roasting dish, top with the sliced onions.
Rub the chicken with some of the olive oil, chopped herbs and garlic, and place on top of the Potatoes and onions.
Place chorizo around the chicken
Pour in chicken stock , and season well with the sea salt and cracked pepper.
Roast in a moderate oven till the chicken is well browned and cooked to the bone
