The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Water for the Sauce
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the potatoes into 2cm wide wedges (no need to peel). Pop the wedges onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. Once hot, lay the chicken into the pan and cook until browned, 3-5 mins each side. While the chicken cooks, trim the green beans. Halve, peel and thinly slice the red onion. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Once browned, pop the chicken onto a baking tray and roast on the middle shelf of your oven until cooked through, 15-20 mins - set your pan aside for later. When cooked, remove from your oven, cover with foil and allow to rest for a couple of mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Meanwhile, pop the BBQ sauce, honey and water for the sauce (see ingredients for both amounts) into a small bowl and stir together. TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min.
Pop your (now empty) frying pan back on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the green beans and onion. Stir-fry until the beans start to char and the onion has softened, 2-3 mins. Stir in the garlic, turn the heat down to medium and cook for 1 min. Then add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil. Allow to cook until the beans are tender, 4-6 mins. Transfer to your plates and drain any excess water.
Pour the BBQ sauce into the (now empty) pan, stir well, then bring back to a bubble and allow to reduce slightly. Add the chicken to the pan and spoon the sauce all over. Serve the BBQ chicken on your plates with the beans and wedges alongside. Spoon any remaining sauce from the pan over the chicken. Enjoy!
STEP 5 MOD: If you've chosen to add chorizo to your meal, add it to the pan before the beans. Fry until it starts to brown, 1-2 mins. Then add the beans and onion and continue as instructed.
