For the Sauce


  • In a large bowl, mix together Chicken, onions, peppers, oil, salt, turmeric, garam masala and cayenne. 
  • Place the chicken and vegetables in the air fryer basket.  
  • Set the air fryer for 360F for 15 minutes. Stir and toss half way through the cooking time.
  • Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a small microwave safe bowl, combine tomato sauce, water, garam masala, salt, and cayenne.
  • Microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir. Microwave for another minute. Set aside.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, remove and place chicken and vegetables in a large bowl. Pour the prepared sauce over them, and toss to cover the chicken and vegetables evenly with the sauce. Serve with rice, naan, or a side salad. 


  • You can also cook this dish stovetop. You would stirfry the chicken, onion, and bell pepper until they were mostly cooked, and then add the sauce along with a little extra water. Then, you'd cover the pan and let it simmer until the sauce had thickened, and the chicken and veggies were cooked through. Leave a little bite in the veggies and you're all set.
