Yields5 Servings
Prep Time15 minsCook Time55 minsTotal Time1 hr 10 mins
 1 4.5-5 pound whole chicken
 ½ fresh lemon
 ¼ whole onion
 4 springs of fresh thyme
 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
 avocado oil
 1 tsp ground thyme
 1 tsp garlic powder
 1 tsp onion powder
 salt & pepper to taste
1

If your chicken still has the giblets inside of it, you will need to remove them prior to cooking.

2

Stuff 1/2 of fresh cut lemon and 1/4 of a chopped onion inside the cavity of the chicken along with the fresh rosemary and thyme.

3

Make sure the chicken is completely dry on the outside. Pat dry with paper towels if necessary. A dry chicken will help it crisp in the air fryer with the avocado oil.

4

Spray avocado oil onto both sides of the chicken using an oil sprayer.

5

Sprinkle the seasonings throughout and onto both sides of the chicken. You may elect to only season the bottom side of the chicken at this step. Because you will need to flip the chicken during the air frying process.

6

Line the air fryer with parchment paper. This makes for easy cleanup. Load the chicken into the air fryer basket with the breast side down.

7

Air fry the chicken for 30 minutes on 330 degrees.

8

Open the air fryer and flip the chicken. Re-assess if more seasoning is needed on the breasts, legs, and wings. Add additional if necessary.

9

Air fry for an additional 20- 25 minutes until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Use a meat thermometer.

10

Remove the chicken from the air fryer basket and place it on a plate to rest for at least 15 minutes before cutting into the chicken. This will allow the moisture to redistribute throughout the chicken before you cut into it.
