Weeknight Spanish Chicken Chorizo & Potato Bake

Oh Mondays, admittedly not my favorite day of the week. To many emails to catch up on, kids back to school, typically the start of a busy hectic week,  & the first day back after a great weekend. Can we just start on Tuesday, I think I`d like it better. And then there`s the what`s for dinner question. Well, I have a great option for you! Today this simple man`s plan to better eating comes in the form of Weeknight Spanish Chicken Chorizo & Potato Bake. You`re going to love this! 5 minutes of active time & about an hour in the oven yields an amazingly delicious meal that`s just so crazy good. Perfectly cooked juicy chicken, tender potatoes & slightly crisped chorizo come together as kind of the perfect marriage. Once you make this I`m sure it`s going to become a regular addition to your dinner rotation. It`s just too fantastic & too easy not to.
Here`s what you`ll need for your Weeknight Spanish Chicken Chorizo & Potato Bake:
