A simple stuffing starts with Onion and Garlic, Sausage and Bacon, Mushrooms, Peas, Carrots, Parsley & fried Bread. This is stuffed into the bird smeared with a mixture of Ginger & Garlic paste, Spices, Salt, Pepper & Vinegar.

I absolutely love my air fryer but had to give it to my son as it was too small for me. I once made a whole Chicken in it, but the top of it was touching the element. My hubby recently found this Ninja foodie that is a pressure cooker and an airfryer in one. While I love my Instant Pot, I’m happy to have a gadget that will do both for me.

This recipe combines two methods of cooking – pressure cook and air fry. The combination of the two will give you a moist and juicy Chicken with great crispy skin.

While I’ve chosen to make a simple Goan style roast for this recipe, you can really use any kind of marinade of your choosing to get this bird on your table really quickly.

The great advantage to having this air fryer is that you can also just heat up leftovers really quickly instead of using an oven or a microwave.
