Layer potatoes in bottom of pot on top of onions, top with chicken chorizo slices, top chorizo with corn, and finish with clams. Cover pot and cook for 15-20 minutes or until clams have opened and corn and potatoes are fork tender. 

  4. Use a slotted spoon to remove clams to a platter. Place corn in a serving bowl. Use a slotted spoon to remove chrorizo and potatoes to a serving bowl. Drizzle all with broth from the bottom of the pot and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve with remaining broth and lemon wedges on the side.
