  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6. Put the potatoes in a roasting tin and mist with cooking spray. Sprinkle over half the paprika and season. Roast for 45 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until crisp and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, mist a deep lidded frying pan with cooking spray and cook the chorizo over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes, until it turns golden and releases its oil. Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon, retaining the oil, and set aside. Add the chicken to the pan and cook for 5 minutes, until golden brown all over. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes, until softened.
  3. Add the garlic and peppers and cook for 4-5 minutes. Return the chorizo and chicken to the pan and add the tomatoes, tomato purée, remaining paprika, oregano and olives plus a splash of water. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes then remove the lid and simmer for a further 5 minutes, until the sauce has thickened slightly. Stir through the parsley then sprinkle over the feta. Serve with the roasted potatoes.
