For this recipe I have suggested that you slightly undercook the Basic Roast Chicken to allow for the cooking time needed for this dish and to ensure that you have perfectly moist and delicious chicken.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20–30 minutes


  • 1 × Basic Roast Chicken, cooked for 20 minutes less than stated
  • 500 ml Basic Tomato Sauce
  • 100 g black olives, pitted
  • 100 g chorizo, sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 30 g fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • 20 g fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Salad greens, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 220 °C.
  2. Cut the basic roast chicken into 10 pieces: 2 breasts (cut in half), 2 wings, 2 thighs and 2 drumsticks.
  3. Pour 250 ml of the basic tomato sauce into an ovenproof dish. Arrange the chicken pieces in the sauce in a single layer and scatter the olives, chorizo and garlic over the chicken. Pour over the remaining sauce.
  4. Sprinkle over the herbs and season with a little salt and black pepper.
  5. Bake for 20–30 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling.
  6. Serve hot with salad greens and cold wine.
