Cooking Instructions

2. Reheat the chorizo in a pan until crispy, adding the shredded chicken to warm through and coat in the chorizo oil.

3. Halve the reserved leeks lengthways and pan-fry in butter until caramelised. Serve the polenta topped with the leeks, chorizo and chicken. Garnish with parsley.
