  • Air Fryer


Air Fryer Roast Chicken

  • 1.5 kg whole chicken
  • 2 tablespoon chicken seasoning
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • spray oil


  • 180°C/350 F for 35 mins (5 mins pre time to season chicken) Note 1
  • Remove chicken from packaging, place on plate and pat dry with paper towel
  • On a small plate add chicken seasoning with olive oil, whisk till consistently combined
  • Place chicken in shallow bowl, pour over seasoned oil and use clean hands to massage seasoning over chicken (both sides and all around)
  • Place chicken into Air Fryer basket (or tray) bread side down. Cook for 20 mins, then pull handle out, rest on heat proof surface and use tongs to flip chicken to breast side up.
  • Cook chicken for a further 35 mins, till skin is golden brown and crispy


  • Note 1 This is not the 1st step of the recipe, however, in my experience, it is the thing that everyone looks for the most when reading the recipe. If your Air Fryer does not require pre heating (most models do not), then simply turn on the Air Fryer and cook the chicken once you have place it into the basket or lined tray.
