Cheats Chicken and Chorizo

I was craving my Chicken and Chorizo Bake, but really didn’t have the time to make it from scratch this recipe using Mum’s BBQ Sauce is the perfect mid-week supper solution for those who want the comfort of home-cooked food without standing over the stove for too long!


This recipe is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo & Whole 30 Approved.

2 bell peppers, finely
6 chicken thighs
1/2 batch of Mum’s BBQ Sauce
200g Chorizo sausage, sliced into small pieces
2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 180Β°c/356Β°F.
  2. Heat the olive oil until smoking in a large pan, place the chicken skin side down and reduce the heat. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the skin is golden and crispy. Flip over the chicken and cook on the other side until sealed.
  3. Remove the chicken from the pan and place in a large oven proof dish.


  4. Remove the excess oil from the pan and fry off the chorizo.
  5. Once the chorizo is nice and crispy remove from the pan and set aside.
  6. Add the pepper to the pan and lightly saute for 2-3 minutes.
  7. Add the chorizo back into the pan along with the BBQ sauce, mix well before pouring over the chicken.


  8. Cover the dish with tinfoil and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and everything is piping hot.
  9. Serve and enjoy as is or teamed with some zoodles to bulk it up!
