Mealthy Tip

Try adding fresh herbs like rosemary sprigs and thyme sprigs along with the garlic and lemon inside the chicken for extra flavor.

Place a few pats of butter under the skin of the chicken for added buttery goodness.

I haven't tried this but if you put the chicken in breast side down how do you tuck the legs and wings "UNDER" the bird?

I love that this recipe includes ingredients that I will likely have on hand, especially when I have a frozen chicken that needs cooking. This is a great, quick recipe to use on busy nights when we want something hearty and simple.

Easy, easy, easy...turned it over after 25 minutes and cooked 30 minutes more. Perfect crispy skin ‼️

The fact I can fit a whole chicken in my air fryer, I am already basically winning at life! I did make a few changes. I let the chicken marinate with buttermilk overnight for extra tender meat. It turns out a lot like rotisserie chicken, I love it.

This recipe was great, but I had problems with the cooking time. I follow the instructions and cooked for 45 min. The chicken had a beautiful crispy skin but was still raw inside. So I flipped the chicken and cooked another 40 minutes. I still need to play with the cooking time, because I don’t think it needed 40 min. Will try 20-30 minutes after flipping next time. But the flavors are amazing, and I love not heating up the kitchen while roasting a chicken! For clarity, the chicken was taken out of the fridge right before pre (maybe it should’ve been room temperature?), and I have a 6Q pot.
