Recipe :: Spanish Chicken with Chorizo & Garlic

Monday was a beyond beautiful day, so Tomas and I decided to take advantage of the weather and cook outside on the balcony. Tomas has a disco, which is basically a large pan that is powered by gas and can be used to cook outside. People usually use discos to cook rice dishes or stews (for example, paella or lentil soup).

I decided to go to one of my favorite sites, foodgawker, to search for "disco appropriate" recipes and came across Spanish Chicken with Chorizo & Garlic. It was pretty simple to make, and I love any meal that can be cooked using only one pan. While ours did not turn out like the photo on the blog, it tasted absolutely delicious! Very flavorful, but I would recommend it more for Fall or Winter as it was a bit of a heavier dish.

We did make a few changes to the recipe:
1.) We substituted regular sausage in place of the spanish chorizo because we do not have Spanish chorizo here. You can find Spanish chorizo in the US, but it is not the easiest to get your hands on, and when you do you're going to PAY. For the record, I don't think the substitution of sausages made that much of a difference.
2.) We used dry thyme instead of fresh thyme because that's what was available at the supermarket.

First, we cooked the chicken and the sausage.

Next, we took out the meat and cooked the garlic, onions and leeks

We put the meat back in the pan and added the chicken stock, white wine & spices.

Lastly, we added the beans.

Not the best presentation, but oh so good!

We're looking forward to a Spring and Summer full of disco-inspired dishes :)
