  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Place the chicken on a clean work surface. Combine the oil, paprika, oregano and garlic in a bowl. Season. Drizzle over the chicken and rub all over to coat.
  2. Step 2

    Place the chicken in a large roasting pan. Use kitchen string to tie the legs together. Arrange the potato, chorizo and onion around the chicken in the pan. Roast for 30 mins or until potato is just tender.
  3. Step 3

    Transfer the potato to a clean work surface. Cool slightly. Use folded paper towels to gently press down on potatoes to flatten slightly. Return potatoes to the pan with the capsicum, lemon, olives, stock and sherry, if using.
  4. Step 4

    Roast for 30 mins. Add tomatoes to the pan. Roast for a further 15 mins or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear when the thickest part of the thigh is pierced with a skewer. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Set aside for 10 mins to rest.
  5. Step 5

    Arrange the potato mixture around the chicken on the platter and sprinkle with the parsley.
