This is a great meal and it can be prepared the day before which is what I do a lot with meals so it helps when you get home after a busy day. You don’t have to decide what to cook just pop it in the oven.
800g potatoes chopped for boiling.
1 tbsp milk
1 onion chopped into small pieces
4 chicken breasts cut into small pieces
2 garlic cloves crushed
1 red pepper chopped into small pieces
170g chorizo sliced
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chilli powder
2oz cheddar cheese grated
salt and pepper
Oil for frying
Place the potatoes in a pan and cook for 20 minutes or until ready for mashing.
Drain and mash adding the milk and butter.
Heat the oven to 200 / Gas 6
Fry the onions in a bit of oil for around 10 minutes on a low heat, stirring occasionally.
Add the chicken and garlic and continue to cook for 5 minutes until lightly browned and sealed.
Add the pepper, chorizo, paprika and chilli and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Add the passata and salt and pepper and simmer for 10 minutes.
Pour into an oven proof dish this can either be 1 large dish or use smaller individual dishes which was what I did.
Spread the mash potato over the chicken and chorizo mixture.
Sprinkle over the grated cheese and bake for 50 minutes.
Serve and enjoy.
