Chicken and Chorizo Pizza Chips

During the summer we visited a lovely little Welsh town called Tenby. My family and I ate in the restaurants situated around the town. On the menu in a few of the non commercial restaurants were chips with sauces. One that seemed to be popular was pizza chips.

When I got home I decided to cook my version of these dishes. As we all love chips and pizza in this house I knew that this would be one dish that would be eaten with no complaints. Plus it’s a very simple dish to cook for a lot of people. So a perfect mid week meal or weekend dinner.
