For the Romesco sauce

  • Preheat drawers 1 and 2 of the Airfryer to Roast at 205℃ for 8 minutes using the Sync Cook function. Deseed the peppers and cut into large chunks. Once pre-heated add the peppers to the airfryer along with a spritz of oil and cook. Cut the bread into bite size pieces and peel and crush the garlic cloves.
  • Once the peppers are roasted, add in the bread, garlic and flaked almonds and continue to roast for another 2 minutes at the same temperature.
  • Tip the contents of the two drawers into a large bowl, along with the olive oil, sherry vinegar and a generous pinch of salt and pepper, then purée with a stick blender.

For the Rosemary potatoes

  • Preheat drawer 1 of the Airfryer to Roast at 180℃ for 25 minutes and Sync Finish the 2nd drawer to Airfry at 205℃ for 20 minutes.
  • Quarter the potatoes and place in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle in the olive oil, add a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to evenly coat the potatoes in the oil and seasoning.
  • Load the potatoes into the roasting drawer of the Airfryer once preheated and cook, shaking the basket half way through the cooking time.
  • Finely chop the rosemary and keep to one side to finish the potatoes later.

For the Chicken

  • Lightly spray the chicken thighs with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Once the Airfry drawer has preheated place the chicken, skin side up, in and cook.
  • After 20 minutes, add the chopped rosemary to the potatoes and toss well to evenly mix. Roast in the Airfryer for a further minute.

To serve

  • Tumble the potatoes into a serving bowl and place the now crispy golden chicken on to a platter and serve alongside the romesco sauce.
