This recipe has always been a family favourite and is now a favourite amongst my friends with it being so cheap and fool-proof for those who aren’t the greatest of chefs like us! For this recipe, all you need is one big pan and a fairly large casserole dish (so it is easy on the washing up!) and then these affordable ingredients:
8 Chicken thighs (I sometimes use chicken breasts/ legs, it depends on your preference)
1 Chorizo, sliced
1 400g tin of chickpeas, drained
1 onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 can of chopped tomatoes
200ml chicken stock
Handful of kale, thickly chopped
Sprinkle of thyme (not essential but definitely worth it if available)
This recipe serves 4. I often like to make the 4 portions and freeze what I don’t eat for another day which is much more economical and saves wasting ingredients. To save the pennies, I buy my veg and meat like the kale, onions, garlic and chicken in this recipe, from Grainger Market as you get much better value for money than the supermarkets.
I believe that any recipe with chorizo in it will be delicious and this is no exception! The dish is so easy and cheap, an essential for any student’s menu.
