Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes
– 4 chicken thighs or 2 chicken breasts
– salt and freshly ground black pepper
– 2 tbsps. olive oil
– 1 romano red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
– 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
– 60g chorizo piece skinned, sliced into 10
– about 8 sage leaves, chopped
– a few fresh thyme sprigs or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
– zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
– crusty bread and salad leaves, to serve
1. Slice the chicken into finger-width strips or chunks and season well while a wok or frying pan heats up. Add half the oil and brown the chicken all over for 5 minutes. Push the chicken to one side in the wok.
2. Add the rest of the oil, red pepper, garlic, chorizo, sage and thyme, and fry for a few minutes. Add the lemon zest and juice.
3. Stir well and heat through for a minute. Serve with bread and salad or green veg, if you like.
TIP: You can use 2 ready-roasted/chargrilled red peppers for extra speed.
