5 - 3 reviews


  • 1 chicken leg
  • 2 tsp of your favourite seasoning (I recommend smoked paprika, cayenne, garlic and cumin mixed together)
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 475ml chicken broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2-3 black peppercorns
  • 325g new potatoes
  • 50g giant couscous
Prep Time


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

  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

  3. Place the marinated chicken on to the reversible rack, and place it inside the Foodi

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

  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

  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

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

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

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