Cooking instruments: the air fryer, a large bowl, a cutting board, a large knife with a wide blade, a lemon juicer, and a pair of tongs. Tip: for this kind of roast, where sealing the meat and turning the marinade into a crust fast is important, you will need an air fryer with preheat function. Check out the NuWave air fryer with automatic preheat.
Reinvent the traditional chicken roast with refreshing Asian flavors! The mix of cumin, ginger, and cinnamon would throw punches if it weren’t for the soothing yogurt. Together, they perfectly complement each other into a roast that will leave everyone at your table hungry for some more!
Wash the lemon and give it a good rub on a hard surface, like the kitchen counter, to break the cells and make it release its juices easier. Then cut it and squeeze it, setting aside the 2 tablespoons of fresh juice;
Peel and wash the garlic, chopping it finely. Then, sprinkle a dash of salt and start making a pile out of it, with the flat of the knife. Repeat the paddling motion that will turn it into a fine paste and set aside your tablespoon of garlic paste;
Start portioning all your other spices, to have them at hand.
Prepare the marinade
Put all the dry ingredients, with the yogurt and the lemon juice, into a bowl;
Stir well to obtain an even mixture;
Cut the chicken into pieces ideal for serving sizes;
Throw the chicken into the marinade, rub all over – use your clean hands to cover all the meat – and let it cool down, for about 20 minutes, into the fridge;
Cook the chicken in the air fryer
Turn on the air fryer and set the preheat function to 360 F;
When the temperature is reached, put the marinated chicken into the frying basket;
Let it cook for approximately 20 minutes;
When the marinade turned into a rich crust and the meat is tender inside, set it aside, on a serving platter;
Serve with a salad of greeneries and lime as a side dish.
Try it with a twist:
Not really a fan of daring combos like this one of pepper, garlic, ginger, cumin, and cinnamon? A simpler but just as refreshing alternative is the mix of yogurt with smoked paprika and ginger or garlic!
