Family favourites

Today I'm back following Cate's list of things to use to Blog Every Day in May.  I love to cook and so sharing a favourite recipe that needs no measuring out, you can just make it up as you go along and doesn't need writing down, isn't a tough thing to do.
It's based around a Mary Berry recipe for 'all in one' chicken but around here it's known as Tray Bake Chicken.
So, for the easiest, tastiest recipe that anyone can adapt.  Feel free to freestyle as you wish but the basic idea is
Chicken thighs
Chicken legs
Onion (quartered)
Thick sliced chorizo
Potatoes - peeled and cut into 2" cubes
Pre heat oven to 180 degrees.  Put all ingredients in a tray, cut up a lemon and squeeze it over everything then throw the squeezed lemon in with it too.  Pour a drizzle of olive oil over everything.
Put tray in oven.
Go and read some blogs for 30 minutes.
Chop up some courgettes and add those to the pan with a handful of olives. 
Put back in oven for about 25 mins.
Done!  I tend to serve it with some thin green beans or some broccoli but basically, everything you need is in the pan.  The juices are quite delicious as the oil seeps out of the chorizo while it's cooking and mixes with the lemon juice.

Chuck it all in "recipes" are the best kind. This sounds simple and delicious.
