Servings: 1 whole chicken


  • 5 quart Air Fryer


  • 4-5 lb. whole chicken
  • 1 tablespoon oil or cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons of your favorite seasonings


  • Prepare the chicken: Spray the outside of the chicken with cooking spray to help the seasonings stick. Generously rub your choice of seasoning on the outside of the chicken.

  • To Freeze: Place leftover chicken in a freezer-safe container. Keep frozen for up to 6 months.
