Spanish Chicken Bake

The biggest meal that I've cooked out of The Hairy Dieters cookbook so far is this continental meat-feast. It was pretty simple, to be fair, although it took ages to skin and bone all of the chicken legs. Whether you can buy pre-boned, pre-skinned chicken thighs in Tesco I have no idea. I normally just buy breast.

The only real problem I had was that my oven takes ages to heat up and never quite reaches the temperature it suggests from the dials. It's a second-hand gas-ran affair, but I got it for free so I'm not complaining. I've just got to remember to up the time a little from THD's recommendations. As a result of this, the potatoes were a bit crunchy but the rest was cooked through- and damned tasty. The chorizo, which was hard to slice up, was the best part.

And then came the turning point in my life.

I invited my parents 'round for a meal. This has never happened before. They gave the meal the thumbs up.
