Chicken with Chorizo

Recipe makes 4 servings


1 ½ lb (675g) boneless skinless chicken thighs
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp Spanish smoked paprika
2 Tbsp (28ml) extra virgin olive oil
2 medium (110g each) yellow onions, sliced
4 oz (110g) Spanish chorizo or another low-carb sausage of choice, thinly sliced
2 medium (120g each) bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch thick strips
3 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 cup (180g) diced tomatoes
1 cup (240ml) chicken stock (more as needed)
2 fresh thyme sprigs
1/4 cup (54g) pitted Spanish olives, sliced

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper and rub with the smoked paprika.
Heat the olive oil in a casserole pan over medium heat; add the chicken thighs, and cook, turning often, until evenly browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Add the onions and chorizo to the pan and sauté, stirring frequently, until the onions are translucent, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the peppers, garlic, and tomatoes, and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, 5 to 8 minutes. Return the chicken thighs to the pot, add thyme sprigs, and pour in enough chicken stock to cover it.

Reduce heat to medium-low, cover with the lid, and cook for about one hour or until the chicken is tender. Stir in the olives and continue cooking for about 10 minutes longer. Serve warm.
