Actifry Chicken Casserole Recipe | Hint of Helen

Your Actifry can cook way more than chips and roast potatoes. After my recent success experimenting with Sausage & Bean Actifry Casserole, I thought I’d give another winter warmer a go; the chicken casserole.

Its a ‘one-pan’ dish, packed full with potatoes, carrots, chicken thighs, leeks and onions – minimum washing up and effort, and a really delicious dinner!

4. Whilst your carrots and potatoes are cooking, chop the onion, leek and crush the garlic
