I will start off by saying this is absolutely fabulous. Words, cannot describe it. It was one of the best things, I have made in the air fryer to date. It is so good, I have no words to describe it, although I’m a food blogger, so I guess I will have to try.
I will be the first person to admit, that I never really wanted to roast a chicken before until I got my air fryer. I mean really, it’s just a regular piece of chicken, but whole, baked for an hour and it has some sort of flavoring on it. Not, very exciting to make. But, since my kids are eating a ton these days, I thought I would try my hand at making my 1st roasted chicken, in the air fryer.
And, I shouldn’t have waited, my kids were literally grabbing the meat off the bones. All of the meat was moist and delicious, they loved the skin too, which is weird because they usually don’t eat the skin. This one had tons of flavor and had a great crispy flavoring.
The size of the bird that you can cook will depend on how large your air fryer is. I have a 5 quart one, and my chicken was just over 3 pounds, and it fit wonderfully. You can season the chicken with anything, today I went with a copycat recipe for homemade rotisserie chicken. The same one that you will find in Costco or your local supermarket.

Set your chicken into the air fryer basket. Rub oil over it.
Then spread the chicken with the rub.
After 30 minutes, and then flip.
Don’t forget to Pin:
- 3-5 pounds whole chicken
- 3 tablespoons oil

- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon onion powder

- 1 teaspoon white pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Start by cleaning your chicken, remove the package of heart/gizzards, liver, etc. and run water through it, until it comes out clean.
In a small bowl mix all of the spices together.
Then rub the oil on one side of the chicken, and the rub mixture. Then set the temperature to 350 degrees F, for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, flip, oil the side and season the side, set for another 30 minutes.
Chicken is done, when it reaches 180 degrees F.
Let cool, slice, plate and enjoy!
