  • olive oil
  • chicken thighs 4 (bone and skin on)
  • onion 1, halved and sliced
  • cooking chorizo 100g, chopped into pieces
  • butter beans 1 x 400g tin
  • chicken stock 200ml
  • flat-leaf parsley ½ a small bunch, chopped


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat a little oil in a wide, shallow pan. Season the thighs all over, then put in the pan skin-side down and cook until crisp and golden. Turn and cook on the other side for a couple of minutes.

  • Step 2

    Take the thighs out of the pan and add the onions. Cook for 5 minutes, then add the chorizo and cook for a couple of minutes. Tip in the butter beans and stock, then sit the chicken back on top. Transfer to the oven for 30 minutes to finish cooking the chicken. Stir the parsley through the butter beans. Serve the chicken and beans in shallow bowls with crusty bread, if you like.
