Baking a whole chicken has always seemed like too much work, and I feared it would come out either raw and uncooked in the middle or overcooked. I never thought how easy it is to cook a whole chicken in my air fryer. It feeds a crowd, tastes delicious, and it’s succulent and ready in less than 60 minutes.

I love well-seasoned protein, so I make homemade spices to add flavor. You can make my chicken seasoning that’s perfect for this recipe.

Ingredients for Air Fryer Whole Chicken

For this deliciously browned roasted chicken we need only 3 ingredients:

  • Whole chicken – a 3-5 pound bird with giblets removed from the cavity.
  • Chicken Seasoning – This blend contains the perfect spices and herbs for chicken. If you don’t have all the ingredients for this seasoning, you can use paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Super classic seasonings that go well with about anything
  • Olive Oil or Butter – Choose wisely. Both are great, and I like the butter flavor.

How to Make Air Fryer Roasted Chicken

It’s so easy to make perfect roasted chicken if you follow the steps below:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 350F. If your air fryer doesn’t have this function, just set it to 35 minutes at 350F and let it run empty for 5 minutes.
  2. Rinse and pat dry the chicken with clean paper towels to absorb all the moisture. This makes the skins super crispy.
  3. Mix the olive oil with homemade chicken seasoning and rub it all over the chicken.
  4. Tie up the chicken legs with kitchen twine.
  5. Place the seasoned chicken, breast side down in the preheated Air Fryer, and baked for 30 minutes.
  6. Halfway through the cooking, flip on the other side, brush with the remaining seasoning mix and cook until done.

How long To Air Fry the Chicken?

Roasting Time depends on the size of your chicken. A rule of thumb is to roast for about 20 minutes per pound, followed by a 10 minute rest before carving to keep the chicken super juicy.

To test for doneness, use a meat thermometer. It should register 165F when inserted in the thickest part of the breast.

Chicken is done when the skin looks golden, and juices run clear.

Once the chicken is completely cooled, carve out the meat and store in an airtight container for up to 4 days, or you can freeze for up to 3 months.
