This recipe is very easy as you make it in one roasting dish and at only 400 calories per serving, it’s great if you’re watching your weight

If the calories don’t worry you too much, just add some more spuds and a bit more chorizo. The tomatoes and chorizo release all their juices into the pan and make a wonderful sauce for the chicken, which is delicious when combined with the sweetness of the roasted garlic! If you’re making this for two, simply halve the ingredients.


Serves 4

  • 2 large red onions
  • 100g chorizo
  • 24 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 small chicken breast fillets
  • 4 cloves of garlic (flattened but not chopped)
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary and or a generous sprinkling of oregano or mixed herbs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 200C/ 400F/Gas Mark 6
  2. Peel the onions, cutting them in half and then each half into quarters
  3. Slice chorizo into 1cm thick slices
  4. Place onions and chorizo into a large roasting tin together with tomatoes, chicken, garlic, herbs and seasoning
  5. Drizzle with olive oil and bake in the oven for 15 mins before removing and giving a good stir, squashing some of the tomatoes so they release more of their juices into the pan.
  6. Place in the oven for a further 15 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.

Serve with 4 small, boiled new potatoes (included in the 400 calorie count) and a generous serving of green vegetables such as broccoli or spinach.
