  • Step 1

    Prepare potatoes by placing in a large wooden spoon and using a sharp knife to cut even slices every ½ cm all the way along, ensuring the knife hits the spoon rather than cutting all the way through the potato.

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, mix oil, garlic, herbs and season to taste. Brush this mixture over potatoes. Place potatoes in an even layer in the air fry basket.

  • Step 3

    Grease oven tray. Place sliced mushrooms in the centre of tray. Sprinkle chicken breasts with paprika and wrap/top with bacon. Place chicken on top of mushrooms and pour over BBQ sauce. Top with cheeses.

  • Step 4

    Install the wire rack on level 2. Select AIR FRY, select 2 LEVEL, set temperature to 180°C, and set time to 30 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin preheating.

  • Step 5

    When the unit has preheated, slide air fry basket into rails of Level 4. Close oven door to begin cooking. After 5 minutes, place oven tray on Level 2 on wire rack. Close oven door and continue cooking.

  • Step 6

    Cooking of the chicken is complete when an instant-read thermometer inserted in chicken reads 75°C.

  • Step 7

    Serve chicken and potatoes hot with green vegetables.

    NOTE: Potatoes may take 5 minutes longer if larger.
