Chicken Chorizo Pepper Melt

Chicken fillets topped with chorizo, peppers, onions, red chilli and loads of mozzarella. Cooked in the oven till the chicken is done and the cheese melts nicely.  Might look a bit messy, but whatever it tasted good!
My fridge clear out recipe turned out rather nice indeedy!
You will need:
chorizo sausage - sliced - about 5 inches or whatever you've got
2 skinless chicken breast fillets
1/2 a green bell pepper - sliced
1 red onion - sliced
1 red chilli pepper - de-seeded and sliced
a good handful of grated mozzarella cheese
a pinch of paprika
salt and black pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 200c/400f or Gas 6
Heat up a frying pan and throw in the chorizo.  Cook until it starts to crisp very slightly and the you have it's lovely orange colour oil in your pan.
Remove and set a side.
In the same pan without washing it, add in the sliced onion and cook for a minute or so before throwing in the pepper and chilli.
Keep stirring, you don't need it to colour too much, just get it so it's cooked and the onions and peppers are soft.
Put the chicken fillets between two sheets of cling film and bash with something bashable till they are thinner.  Be careful not to go too mad with the bashing! If you do they will tear.
Oil a shallow dish and season the fillets with a little salt and pepper.
Put then side by side into the dish.
Top with the onions, peppers and chilli.  Now put on the cooked chorizo and finish with a generous handful of grated mozzarella and sprinkle over a pinch of paprika.
 Cover with kitchen foil and cook for about 20 minutes.  
Remove the foil and cook for a further 10 minutes or so - until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese has melted.
Serve immediately with whatever else you fancy - some big fat crispy chips perhaps?
