1kg cooked & drained white beans

Salt & pepper
Pinch of paprika
Tsp of sea salt

Rub the Spatchcock halves in the spice rub and leave to marinate for 30 minutes.
Lightly sear the Spatchcock in a little olive oil then put to one side.
In the same pan add the onions and sauté until tender then add the garlic, chorizo & bacon.
Cook gently for 5 minutes until the chorizo is cooked through then add the parsley stalks.
Add the chopped tomatoes bring to the boil for a couple of minutes add the chicken stock bring to the boil then add the white beans. Bring to the boil and lightly season.
Place into a large oven tray and then place the Spatchcock halves on top skin side up and roast in a 180°C oven for 25 minutes or until the skin is crispy & golden and the Spatchcock is cooked through.
Allow to rest for 10 minutes so that the Spatchcock soaks up extra juices and stay moist.
Dress in a deep bowl for 10 entrees or 5 main courses with a little olive oil and chopped flat parsley.
This can be cooked in individually in terracotta dishes as well.
