  • Step 1

    Drizzle olive oil in the bottom of a non-stick roasting tray that the chicken thighs will fit into with some space between them. Put the onions, chorizo and lemon chunks in the tray, pour over the wine, then sit the chicken thighs on top. Season the chicken well. Roast for 45 minutes then remove the thighs, stir in the chickpeas and peppers, and sit the thighs back on top. Cook for another 10 minutes until the chickpeas are warmed through. Scatter with parsley before serving.
