  • Step 1

    Season the chicken with olive oil and the spices of your choice. Leave it on the counter for 1 hour to marinate

  • Step 2

    After the marinating is complete, add the chicken broth, bay leaf, black peppercorns and new potatoes in to the main pot of the Foodi

  • Step 3

    Place the marinated chicken on to the reversible rack, and place it inside the Ninja Foodi Multicooker

  • Step 4

    Assemble the pressure lid and pressure cook on high for 15 minutes

  • Step 5

    Once the pressure cooking is complete, carefully move the vent to the quick release position. Take off the pressure cooking lid, and remove around 3/4 of the chicken broth

  • Step 6

    Now to crisp the chicken and potatoes. Cut the potatoes in half and place them on to the reversible rack alongside the chicken, skin side up

  • Step 7

    Set the Foodi to air crisp for 20 minutes. Then turn the chicken and repeat for a further 15 minutes

  • Step 8

    While this is crisping, cook the couscous in the broth for around 10-12 min

  • Step 9

    Once cooking is complete, serve the chicken on top of the couscous and crispy potatoes, along with the broth
