Baked chicken with potatoes and chorizo: easy recipe for one
We will agree that baked chicken is a dish that tastes like home. And it can be a very simple recipe that can be enjoyed by a single person, even with little knowledge of cooking. This is what I wanted to demonstrate to my boyfriend by showing him this recipe for baked chicken with potatoes and chorizo, since I'm afraid that his recipe book when he stays home alone is quite scarce.
A good quality chicken hindquarters is a very comfortable piece to buy in units, great if we are alone and still want to enjoy a good dish. The skillet or iron skillet is very practical for these recipes but can be prepared in any suitable source. The touch of chorizo above all will give flavor to the baking and the juices at the end.

Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Check the chicken's hindquarters for any remaining feathers, and remove any excess fat or skin. Dry with paper towels. Wash the potatoes and the tomato.
Grease a medium or small cast iron baking dish, casserole or skillet with a jet of extra virgin olive oil. Scrub the chicken to smear it well on all sides, adding a little oil under the skin. Season and cover well with Provencal herbs.
Distribute around the potatoes cut in half -or whole, if they are very small-, the chopped chorizo and the tomato cut in two. Season everything and water with a thread of oil.Add the zest of the orange to the chicken and the white wine to the bottom. Save the fruit to squeeze the juice.
Bake for about 50-60 minutes, adding a little more wine or water during cooking if the bottom is too dry. Remove the chicken and vegetables, selecting some pieces of chorizo if desired and they are not too toasted.
Wet the bottom with the orange juice and scrub well to collect the juices, which can be reduced by carefully placing the skillet on the fire. Glaze the chicken and serve.
Serve the chicken with the vegetables and some pieces of chorizo, if they have not been toasted too much.
