This was jolly awesome as I won the latest Philips AirFryer during Philips Blogger Cooking Challenge and got my hands to unwrapped it. My last dish at the challenge was with fish and so at my own comfort pantry I decided to play with chicken. For this session I bought a whole no antibiotic chicken from our local supermarket which weights about 1.2kg. It looked brilliant and amazing just right for the three of us over dinner.

Scouting in my fridge I found a great stash of Chinese herbs and I know what I am going to cook, my version of the beggar chicken. Here I used dried longan, wolfberries, red dates, solomonseal rhizome “Yu Zhu”, Chinese yam “Huai Zhan” and “Tong Kwai” to give the chicken a great flavour and aroma..
