Easy Mum Recipe: Fo' Shizzle My Chicken

Great recipe name, I think you'll agree... I don't know where I got this from - I think it is a mix-up of recipes that I have read, and me just experimenting with what works. We all love a one-pot recipe, right? It's easy, saves on the washing up and you just whack it in the oven and leave it - no stirring or messing involved!

So, first off all get all your ingredients together. I have not specified quantities here, like I said last time in my Egg Fried Rice recipe, it's not an exact science - just adjust the quantities to suit and play around with it.

So first, get it all together and do your preparation. We cut the oregano from what we have grown in our back garden but you could buy it dried if you wanted to.

My hands are looking rather manly today don't you think??

These are your ingredients:

So - really there are only three steps to this.

1. Peel your carrots, sweet potatoes, onions and potatoes if you want. I like to leave the skin on, but it's up to you. Chop everything up. You could leave the chicken breasts whole - whatever you like it's up to you.
2. Put it all in a big pot, stir up add a little olive oil on the top, but not too much - the fat from the chorizo sausage should help cook all the vegetables and give them that rich smokey flavour as well. Yummy.

All the raw ingredients ready to go
 3. Whack the pot in the oven. I'd say about 180 degrees, middle of the oven for around an hour. Keep a check on it, and just stick a fork in to check that the vegetables are cooked how you would like.

That's it!

Food photography skills!

Fo' Shizzle My Chicken - Chop everything, one pot, oven at 180 for an hour - DONE!


  1. Ooh this looks like my kind of meal! Think I will have to give this a whirl! Maybe throw some other veg like courgette/Aubergine into the mix?
