    Setup for direct grilling.

    Place a cast iron pan over the charcoal.

    Add some oil before adding the onions.

    G-fresh sent me some of this chilli salt to try out. It’s packs a nice punch and saves adding chilli to the dish.

    Cook off the onion before add the capsicums.

    Add 1 tablespoon of minced garlic.

    Cook until the capsicums begin to soften.

    Take the pan off the heat and transfer the onions and capsicums to a bowl to cool.

    Step 4: Place the Pan Back Over the Heat and Add the Chorizo.

    Brown off before adding the chicken.

    Season with the chilli salt.

    Once the chicken has heated through and soaked up the oil from the chorizo, take the pan off the heat.

    Step 5: The Onions and Capsicums Have Cooled, Add the Diced Tomato to the Bowl Along With the Spring Onion.
