  • 1 onion (Small)
  • 1 Leek (Small)
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 tablespoon sage
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 450 grams sausage meat
  • Salt (According to taste)
  • Pepper (According to taste)

The next is the checklist of ingredients for roast cooking. That is as followed;

  • ½ courgette
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 2 potatoes (Large)
  • 5 tablespoon cooking oil (preferably Olive oil)
  • Salt (According to taste)
  • Pepper (According to taste)
  • 5 carrots (medium size)



While both sets of ingredients are resting on the kitchen counter near you, let’s head towards the preparation part of the recipe.

The first thing to do is to clean the leek and peel the onions. Then dice both into slices. When done, convert them into a bowl and add the stuffing ingredients such as salt, pepper, thyme, meat, sage, and butter to them. Mix the content well. Take some time to get them mixed perfectly and then add the breadcrumbs to the bowl. You need to mix the content again so that the bread crumbs are evenly mixed through the content.

Once everything is finely mixed, gather the content and form it in the shape of a big ball using your hands. This stuffing ball will be pushed into the belly of the whole chicken. As the cavity of chicken is stuffed with the content, we are ready to move ahead.

Now you need to peel the carrots finely, and cut them into large sticks. Cut the quarter of courgettes into sticks comparatively smaller than the carrot sticks. Convert the diced carrots and courgettes into a bowl and add the salt, and pepper to them. Pour some olive oil and use your hand to finely mix the content. Let the bowl rest aside. Similarly, peel and dice the potatoes and let them wait for their turn.

Take the olive oil and brush it all around the bread side skin of the chicken. Leave no skin of breast side unattended. When there is an oily layer visible above the skin, rub the parsley, pepper, and salt all around the oily part.

Upon finishing the stuffing and seasoning process, take the air fryer basket out and place the chicken breast side down on it. Now repeat the oiling and seasoning process on the above side.

Now take the seasoned carrots and courgettes bowl and start placing them under the vacant edges of the chicken. Place them anywhere you find the space.

You are all set to turn on your air fryer. Place the basket in the fryer and let the chicken cook for 25 minutes approximately at a temperature of 360°F. Meanwhile, add the diced potatoes to the empty bowl of carrots seasoning. Mix them with a little salt and pepper in the same bowl.

ON lapsing the cooking time, take the air fryer basket out and collect all the veggies from the sides of the chicken and collect them in a separate bow. Now Flip the chicken upside down and fill the room around it with the dices potatoes this time. Let it cook again for another 25 minutes.
