  • 4 level tbsp plain flour
  • 4 level tsp Asda Smoked Paprika
  • 1kg pack Asda Chicken Thighs (skin on)
  • 1kg pack Asda Chicken Drumsticks (skin on)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium red onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1⁄2 x 250g Asda Extra Special Chorizo, thickly sliced
  • Small bunch thyme
  • 3 red peppers, de-seeded and cut into quarters
  • 150ml dry sherry
  • 600ml hot chicken stock
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Put the flour and paprika in a plastic food bag and season. Cut excess skin off the chicken thighs. Toss the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan and brown the chicken all over (you will need to do this in batches).

  • Transfer to a casserole and set aside. Add the remaining oil, onions, garlic, chorizo, thyme (reserving a little for garnish) and peppers to the frying pan and cook for 10 minutes or until the onions have softened.

  • Stir in the sherry, bring to the boil then pour over the chicken with the stock. Cover and then bake for 1 1⁄2 hours.

  • Sprinkle with thyme before serving with crushed potatoes, if liked.
