Recipe of the Week: Chicken, Chorizo Gnocchi Bake
This week our recipe is a delicious Spanish style gnocchi bake, perfect while there is still a chill in the air!
300g chicken breast
3 chorizo sausages
1 small red onion
1 small white onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
400g fresh gnocchi
fresh basil leaves
red Leicester (or your favourite cheese, the quantity is your choice!)
dried mixed herbs
Dice the chicken breast, slice the chorizo sausages into 1cm thick rounds.
Fry off the chicken until golden in a large saucepan and then add the chorizo sausage.
Finely dice the onions and add to the pan.
Crush the garlic and stir until all combined.
Add a generous amount of dried mixed herbs, and then add the chopped tomatoes.
Leave to simmer for a few minutes.
Whilst the chicken mix is cooking, boil the gnocchi in slightly salted water for 2-3 minutes, taste to check it is cooked through.
Drain thoroughly and add to the saucepan.
Mix until combined, and then pour into a suitable dish for the oven.
Sprinkle with a good helping of cheese, add some fresh basil leaves and a sprinkling of salt and black pepper.
Place in the oven at 180c for 5 minutes or until the cheese is all melted!
