One Pot Pork with Chickpeas recipe

Preparation Time: 30 minutes | Cooking Time: 2 hours

This delicious one pot dish has bags of flavour - pork leg is cooked with tomatoes, chorizo, garlic and green olives. Chickpeas are added to make this a true one pot dish - you don't need to serve any veggies or side dishes as everything is right there in one pot.


  • 500g diced pork leg
  • 1 x 400g tin chickpeas, drained
  • 100g chorizo, casings removed
  • 100g green olives
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 300ml chicken stock
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Small handful freshly chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil

Method of Preparation:

  1. Heat the oven to 130C. Chop the chorizo into chunks. Thinly slice the onion and mince the garlic cloves.

  2. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-bottomed, oven proof saucepan. Add the pork and brown on all sides, then scoop out with a slotted spoon and set to one side.

  3. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook until softened. Stir in the chorizo and paprika and cook for 3-4 minutes until the chorizo starts to release oils.

  4. Stir in the tomatoes, chicken stock, cooked pork and salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 1 hour.

  5. Stir in the chickpeas and olives and cook for another hour. Stir in the parsley and lemon juice and zest before serving.

Use black olives if you like instead of green olives. Recipe serves 4.
