one pan chicken with chorizo and potatoes

Anything I am able to put in the oven for a few hours, and have a delicious meal without fuss is a winner.  This recipe in one of my favorites for a winter weekend lunch with friends or a weekday dinner.

The special part of the recipe, is once you get comfortable with it, you can add or remove some of the ingredients with what happens to be in your refrigerator.  Replace the chorizo with sausage, add some cherry tomatoes, include tarragon rather than rosemary.  Many different flavors work, so master it and then get creative.
