Smoked Paprika Chicken & Chorizo Bake (Low-carb)

Keto Chicken and Chorizo Bake

This is why you must try my Cauliflower Rice recipe! I added the cooked cauli-rice to the chicken roasting dish halfway through and it absorbs all that glorious smoked paprika flavour. This is chicken & chorizo bake is a great family dinner that can be enjoyed with a fresh side salad. This chicken and chorizo bake uses the Fats of Life Cauliflower Rice recipe, which you will notice only serves 4. You should therefore make 1 and 1/2 times that cauli-rice recipe to yield enough for 6 people (and this is also how the macros were calculated.)

Instructions
  1. Assuming the Cauliflower Rice has been cooked and ready, continue with the recipe. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F.
  2. Season the chicken thighs with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Drizzle one tablespoon olive oil (or melted lard) over the chicken and sprinkle over the smoked paprika. Use clean hands to massage the mixture into the thighs.
  4. Heat the second tablespoon olive oil (or melt the lard) in a large, non-stick pan and fry three of the chicken pieces skin-side DOWN until the skin is golden and crispy. Turn each piece over and cook on the underside for only a minute. Remove and place skin-side UP into a large casserole dish or deep baking tray. (Use a dish larger than what you think you will need, as you will be adding plenty of cauliflower later.)
  5. Repeat the process with the remaining olive oil (or lard) and chicken thighs. (We work in batches to avoid over-crowding the pan.)
  6. Place the roasting dish into the oven for 20 minutes.
  7. After 20 minutes, remove the chicken pieces from the dish using tongs and set aside briefly. Add the chorizo and the cooked Cauliflower Rice into the dish and mix well in all the rendered fat and juices. If you feel it may need a little more oil, drizzle some over and mix in.
  8. Return the chicken pieces to the dish, nestling them in the cauliflower mixture.
  9. Return to the oven for an additional 10-15 minutes until the chicken has sufficiently cooked through. A meat thermometer probe is useful here, remove from the oven when the internal temperature reads 72°C / 163°F in the thickest part of the chicken.
  10. Season with Pink Himalayan Salt and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve with a side salad.

Recipe Notes

This recipes uses the Fats of Life Cauliflower Rice recipe, which you will notice only serves 4. You should therefore make 1 and 1/2 times the cauli-recipe recipe to yield enough for 6 people - as this is how the macros were calculated.

Since olive oil is somewhat unstable when heated, I do advise you select lard to fry food. It's inexpensive and can be found in the same aisle as butter.

  1. This was very delicious! I did substitute pork for chicken this time because we were all chickened out. I do not like cauliflower but I was pleasantly surprised how delicious it was. Thank you!
