Chicken thighs with chorizo, beans, and courgette - Boneless thighs are easier to deal with, but skin and bone lends flavour to the meat and keeps the chicken tender. A great dish to prep in advance, it is easy to re-heat and actually benefits from being left for the flavours to meld. Sobrasada may be substituted for chorizo. Place it in the dish last thing, before it is left to simmer, and it will melt into the sauce, providing richness and flavour.
