Air Fryer Whole Roasted Chicken

You guys, I’m in love with this Air Fryer Whole Roasted Chicken.

I shouldn’t be surprised; I love rotisserie chicken. If I swing by the grocery store after work, there is a good chance I’ll come home with a rotisserie chicken for dinner, because I can’t resist the low price point, the convenience, and the delicious smells coming from the deli warmer.

The one thing cooked chicken from the store doesn’t have, though, is my mother-in-law’s poultry rub. I was introduced to this tasty seasoning one Thanksgiving, and it’s been in active rotation on our poultry scene ever since.

I have a slow cooker whole chicken recipe I love, and a slow cooker roasted turkey breast recipe that is great, but when I’m short on time, and when I’m looking for a crispier skin, this Air Fryer Whole Roasted Chicken is perfect.

I used my Secura Large Capacity 3.2-Liter air fryer, which is just big enough to hold my 5 pound chicken,and is great for typically fried or baked foods like french fries, chicken strips, and egg rolls! (affiliate link)
