Can the Spanish Chicken with Chorizo recipe be made in an air fryer? I wonder if any of the steps differ as it looks really good and I would like to make it myself.

Our answer

Nigella's Spanish Chicken With Chorizo And Potatoes (from KITCHEN) is a one-pan supper where the chicken, potatoes and chorizo cook on the same baking sheets. The fat from the chicken and chorizo help to flavour and crisp up the potatoes.

While air fryers are great for roasting chicken, in this particular recipe we don't think that an air fryer is necessarily a good idea. The main reason is that an air fryer basket has lots of perforations in the base, which helps the air to circulate around the food. But at the same time, the fats are going to drip through the basket and collect in the drip tray and so will not coat the potatoes. So the paprika and spices will not permeate through the dish in quite the same way.
