My Chicken Sausage Bowl with Roasted Apples & Parsnips make a delicious seasonal meal. Hi friends, this is Jennifer from JENRON DESIGNS. Today I am sharing a double feature that used both your Instant Pot & Ninja Air Fryer with my recipe for my Chicken Sausage Bowl with Roasted Apples & Parsnips.

This is such a delicious option that uses fresh fruits and vegetables that are currently in season this time of year. My Chicken Sausage Bowl with Roasted Apples & Parsnips is low calorie, savory dish that utilizes both the Instant Pot and Ninja Air Fryer all in one recipe.

Of course, you will want to wash and dry all your fresh produce. Then peel your parsnips, just as you would a carrot, and cut into thin disks. Repeat the process for your apples, I personally decided to leave the peels on my apples, since we like the extra fiber, that is up to you.

Liberally coat with 1 tbsp of olive oil, and half of the listed spices in the recipe, which are minced thyme leaves, salt, cinnamon, and smoked paprika. Roast in the Air Fryer at 390 degrees until crisp, approximately 10-12 minutes. Be sure to check them halfway through the cooking time and toss the mix around to ensure even cooking.

While your veggies are cooking, add 1 tbsp olive oil to your Instant Pot on the saute setting. Add in garlic, diced onions, and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring until onions are softened and translucent approximately 2-3 minutes. Then add in the chicken sausage and brown for an additional 5 minutes.

You should not have any excess grease with the chicken sausage, but if you do I recommend straining it off.

Then deglaze the pot by stirring in 1 cup of stock, along with the lemon and orange zest. Pour in your mixture of the bulgur wheat, and remaining spices. Seal and set your Instant Pot to cook at manual high pressure, for 10 minutes. Allow venting to happen naturally, do not quick release. When it’s no longer venting on its own, press the button to release any leftover pressure. Then stir in sour cream while hot.
