Chicken, chorizo and sweet potato bake

Chicken, chorizo and sweet potato bake

4 chicken thighs (off the bone);

2 chorizo sausages;

1 sweet potato;

2 tbs oil (preferably a flavoured oil such as a garlic steeped olive oil);

4 sprigs fresh thyme;

Salt and pepper to taste.


Preheat a fan forced oven to 180 celcius.  Spread oil in a baking dish big enough to take the ingredients in one layer.  Place the chicken thighs evenly in the dish.  Slice the chorizo into 2cm slices and scatter into dish.  Peel and dice the sweet potato into pieces just slightly bigger than the chorizo, and scatter into dish.  Strip the thyme leaves from the stalks and scatter over the dish.  Sprinkle a little salt and pepper over the dish and bake for approximately 40 minutes.
