Spanish Chicken Stew Ingredients

  • 1 tbs of olive oil – use rapeseed oil if you prefer.
  • 1 red onion – diced
  • 1 clove garlic – finely chopped, you could use dried garlic powder or jarred chopped garlic if you prefer.
  • 1 Romano pepper – sliced
  • 500g diced chicken breast – you can make this using chicken mini fillets if you like, they’re often cheaper to buy.
  • 200g cooking chorizo sausages – I remove the skins and slice them into discs
  • 150ml red wine
  • 2 tins chopped tomatoes – if you can find polpa tomatoes use them instead, they make a super smooth sauce.
  • 1 tbs smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • Small bunch of flat leaf parsley – chopped

How to make Spanish Chicken and Chorizo Casserole

  • Heat the oven to 180C. I use a cast iron pan for this recipe that can be used on the hob and in the oven.
  • Add a splash of oil to the pan and gently sauté the onions and garlic over a low heat for 5 -10 minutes.
  • Tip in the diced chicken and seal the meat.
  • Add the chorizo and cook gently for 5 minutes so the lovely smoky spicy flavour mixes with the chicken.
  • Tip in the peppers and stir in the wine.
  • Add the tinned tomatoes, smoked paprika and dried oregano. Season with salt and black pepper.
  • Add the boiling water and bring the casserole to a gentle boil.
  • Cook in the oven for around 1 hour 30 minutes until the chicken is lovely and tender and the casserole thickened.
  • Sprinkle over chopped flat leaf parsley before serving.

  • Add in extra vegetables – try courgettes or stretch the recipe to feed more by adding a tin of chickpeas or butter beans.
  • Make this a one pot meal and add in new potatoes to cook in the casserole – you’ll need to adjust the liquid maybe add a little stock and check the casserole doesn’t dry out whilst cooking. 

How to serve Spanish Chicken Stew

  • Delicious for a laid back weekend dinner – serve with crispy lemon and rosemary roast potatoes or soft fluffy rice and a pile of fresh greens – broccoli, cabbage or green beans, simply dressed with olive oil, lemon juice and chopped capers. 
  • Leftovers are great in a baked potato next day or stirred through freshly cooked pasta.
