Simple, full of flavour, great for entertaining.


Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 spicy chorizo sausage, diced
  • 400g butter beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 pkt mini corn tortillas
  • 1 tsp sumac powder
  • 1 whole fresh lime, cut into quarters
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 4 chicken maryland fillets
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees (non-fan forced), 180 degrees (fan forced).
  2. Rinse & pat dry the chicken. Rub the skin in olive oil then coat with the sumac powder, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Pour the butter beans, diced chorizo and stock into the bottom of a casserole dish. Place the chicken on top (skin side up) and cook in a pre-heated oven for 45mins (or until the chicken skin looks crisp and dark brown). Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  4. While the chicken is cooling, toast the mini tortillas under the grill until crunchy and light brown (approx 4 mins each side).
  5. Using a sharp knife or mallet, cut the chicken pieces in half and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil and the fresh lime.
  6. Serve the bean/chorizo 'soup', topped with the chicken and a side of toasted tortillas in individual bowls, or scatter on a share plate for Spanish style tapas dining. Optional: garnish with fresh parsley immediately before serving.

Notes... You could use a whole chicken instead of the maryland pieces, just cut to size before roasting.

  • This looks very nice, thank you.
