Hi, Friends! It’s Rita Joy from Harbour Breeze Home here. I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the lookout for new meal ideas for our busy household. Today’s One-Pot Meal: Chicken Chorizo Bake was a surprise discovery as I watched a snippet of a talk show with Jamie Oliver as a guest. Through the magic of tv, he whipped up this meal in mere minutes! I was inspired to try a variation of that recipe that very night, and have made it many times since.
It’s quick to prepare, healthy & filling, and bursting with flavor! The added bonus is that it’s all prepared in just one pan.

How to make chicken chorizo bake
You’ll find all the details in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post. So scroll on down. But first, I have some details and an overview of the steps just in case you’re curious.
1. Do the food prep
The first step is to cut up all the veggies. You can do this food prep a few days in advance if you need to.
When you are ready to make the meal, place them in a large baking dish.
2. Blend the ingredients
You’ll need to blend the chicken bouillon with some hot chorizo sausage, some garlic cloves, the red wine vinegar, and some dried rosemary. This is going to smell so good!
3. Pour boiling water into the blender
You need to use boiling water because it will help make all the difference in how everything tastes as it cooks.
4. Place everything in a baking dish
Now you just have to put everything in a baking dish and sprinkle some seasonings on top. Then it is ready to bake!
Bake at 400 degrees F covered with aluminum foil for 45 minutes. Then uncover, and bake 35 minutes more ~ or until bubbling and the chicken and veggies are cooked through.
