  • 4 oz. dried chorizo sausage, sliced into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup baby new potatoes, halved
  • 2 Wild Wonders® Peppers, cut into ½-inch thick strips
  • ½ medium red onion, cut into ¼-inch thick slices
  • 5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 Kumato® Tomatoes, quartered
  • 4 thyme sprigs
  • ½ cup dry sherry
  • 2 tsp. smoked paprika


  • Heat a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the chorizo and cook until browned and some of the fat has rendered. Transfer the chorizo to a plate lined with paper towels and set aside.
  • Add olive oil (if needed) to lightly coat the bottom of the pan and heat. Season the chicken thighs with Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Once oil is hot, add the chicken to the pan skin side down and cook, undisturbed, over medium heat until the fat has rendered and the skin is crispy and brown, about 6 to 7 minutes. The chicken should be close to being cooked through (about 145°F). Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  • Drain the oil from the cast iron, leaving a thin layer of oil coating the bottom and add in the new baby potatoes, cut-side down, and cook until browned, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add in the peppers, onions, garlic, and smoked paprika and continue to cook until softened.
  • Add in the sherry and allow to simmer until the liquid is reduced by half and the potatoes are fork tender. If potatoes need more time, add ¼ cup water or stock and continue to simmer as needed.
  • Add in tomatoes and allow the sauce to continue to simmer until thickened, and tomatoes softened, about 7-10 minutes.
  • Return the chicken thighs, skin side up, and chorizo pieces to the pan over the vegetables and continue to cook until the chicken’s internal temperature reaches 165°F. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
