The instruction how to make Baked chicken with pumpkin and chorizo
- Preheat oven to 220u00b0C (200u00b0C fan-forced). Heat a large heavy frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tbs of the oil and half the chorizo. Cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chorizo to a 23cm x 33cm baking dish. Season the chicken well with salt and pepper. Add half the chicken to the frying pan and cook, turning once, for 6 mins or until golden brown all over. Transfer to the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
- Pour off all but 2 tsp of the oil from the frying pan. Add the pumpkin, swede, carrot, garlic and thyme to the pan. Cook for 6 mins or until the vegetables are caramelised and beginning to soften. Add the stock and bring to a simmer. Pour the mixture into the baking dish.
- In a small bowl, mix breadcrumbs, pepitas, remaining 1 tbs of the oil and remaining chorizo. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the chicken and vegetables in the baking dish.
- Bake for 20 mins or until the mixture is bubbling and breadcrumb topping is crisp and golden brown. Set aside for 5 mins to cool slightly. Sprinkle with parsley and extra thyme.
