Air Fryer Roast Chicken

Getting reviews...
We love the air fryer for all sorts of items, but we love it best for cooking a whole chicken. The skin renders and gets perfectly crispy while the inside stays incredibly moist and flavorful.

Special equipment:
a 3.5-quart air fryer
  1. Preheat a 3.5-quart air fryer to 370 degrees F and spray the basket with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Rub the outside of the chicken with the olive oil.  
  3. Sprinkle the chicken inside and outside with 1 tablespoon salt and several grinds of pepper. Fill the cavity with the herbs, garlic and lemon. Put the chicken in the basket breast-side up, pushing it down so it does not touch the top of the fryer.  
  4. Roast the chicken until it is golden and crispy and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the thigh, avoiding bone, reads 165 degrees F, 50 to 60 minutes.
