This Chicken With Chorizo And Tomatoes is the perfect weeknight dinner. My recipe is super simple and easy to make.
This meal making use of chorizo together with tomatoes is succulent and spicy and will go down a treat. Chicken is a protein we could eat every night of the week. I am a very fussy chicken eater and like most people I know, I only want to eat happy chickens. We are lucky enough to have a farm close to where we live that produces free range chickens. They are hormone free which is essential in my books. The best part of this is that I can order the chicken pieces that I like. I am not a huge fan of chicken breasts as they tend to dry out. And because of that we eat more thighs than anything else. So, my chicken shopping tends to reflect that. Close by the chicken farm is a shop where I buy my chorizo.
They make the most amazing cured products and they too sell free range meat. Here we can get venison when it is in season and the most amazing sausages.
