Air Fryer Whole Chicken

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

Air Fryer Whole Chicken is so easy, and everyone in my house loves it. My favorite kitchen toy is an air fryer by far. As soon as we got it I was in love with it.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

A year later we got another one. It is bigger with more settings such as baking, toasting and broiling together along with the initial air fryer function.

Now, this is not an air fryer review of any kind, but I really like this one in regards to how many functions it has.

However, I wouldn’t get this one again just because it is a bit too loud compared to my old one.

I’ve been wanting to make a whole chicken for a while now and since this air fryer is big enough, the chicken, that is around 4 pounds, fits easily.

So after marinating the chicken overnight in the fridge I finally had a chance to make it.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

It took me around an hour and a half, turning two times around to get that crispy skin. It was worth it.

To be honest, I thought that it will be done much faster but at the same time, I didn’t want to risk cooking it at high temperatures.

It was low and slow, in a way, although for the first 30 minutes I air-fried it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then a for an hour it was cooked at 375 degrees.

This all depends on how big your chicken is. Make sure that the internal temperature is at least 165 degrees.

You must poke your meat thermometer at the thickest part of the chicken so it can read the most accurate temperature.

Recipe

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

Yield: Makes 1 Chicken, Serves 4 to 6
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Additional Time to Marinade: 12 hours
Total Time: 13 hours 35 minutes

Air Fryer Whole Chicken is so easy, and everyone loves it. My favorite kitchen toy is an air fryer by far. As soon as we got it I was in love with it.

Ingredients

  • 1 chicken, 3 lb to 5 lb (1.3kg to 2.2kg)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Place the whole chicken in the large pot or a bowl (You can also use an extra-large ziplock bag to marinate). Remove the chicken giblets. Rinse the chicken inside and out. Remove any excess fat and leftover pin feathers and pat the outside dry.
  2. On the side mix olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, salt, and pepper then rub all over the chicken. under the skin, inside and all around. Close it or cover it and place it in the fridge for 10 to 12 hours, or overnight.
  3. You can roast this in the oven for 45 to 50 minutes at 375°F, but today we gonna use air-fryer.
  4. Take the chicken out of the marinade and add butter under the skin and rub if possible all around the chicken.
  5. Air fry for 30 minutes at 350°F with back down and breast up, then turn it around and cook for 30 minutes with the breast down so the back could get a nice golden color as well at 375°F.
  6. After that turn, it again allows it to air-fry for an additional 30 minutes also at 375°F. If your chicken is bigger like 5 pounds it might take up to 40 additional minutes.

The cooking time depends a) on your air fryer and b) on the size of the chicken. Always use a meat thermometer to detriment if the chicken is cooked through. The safe internal temperature for cooked chicken is 165° Fahrenheit (75° Celsius). When you're cooking a whole bird, it should be inserted into the thickest part of the thigh but not touching bone.

Chicken Fajita Skewers

Chicken Fajita Skewers are fresh, tasty, healthy, colorful, and the ultimate summer grilled food that everyone loves. My family loves it especially with a bowl of Spanish rice and beans.

To lighten up my recipe, I used a mixture of oil with lime juice and my own herbs and spices to marinate chicken.

The combination of this extravagant oil and delectable chicken definitely called for a family cookout!

The oil provided a rich, tender taste that left all of our mouths watering before we could dive into the meal. When serving this meal you and your family are guaranteed to never be left disappointed. It is really that good!

Skewers

The dish is pretty amazing and we did not step away too far from the authenticity. However, to lighten up my recipe, I used skewers instead of serving it traditionally in tortillas.

You can use any oil that you prefer, which was fantastic. The oil keeps chicken moist and juicy while grilling. Also, I love using my own spice and herb blend for his chicken fajita instead of the store-bought.

I believe it is much healthier, plus you are in control of which herb and spice you are going to use. That makes sense, right?

So, this summer I have decided to share with you the best of my recipes from the grill. It is my absolute favorite way of cooking so I cannot wait to share!

Chicken Fajita Skewers

Chicken Fajita Skewers

Yield: Serves 6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Chicken Fajita Skewers are fresh, tasty, healthy, colorful, and the ultimate summer grilled food that everyone loves.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons (42 g) oil
  • Juice of 1 lime, preferably ripe
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro or flat-leaf parsley
  • 3 pounds (1.3 kg) chicken breast, cubed (approximately 3 whole chicken breast)
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 orange bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized chunks
  • 1/2 large red onion, chopped into bite-sized chunks

FAJITA SEASONING

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Instructions

  1. Combine the seasoning and set aside. Now, mix together oil and lemon juice.
  2. Cut chicken with a sharp knife into approximately the same bite-size pieces as cubes, then rub seasoning all over. Drizzle oil and lemon juice mixture over seasoned chicken and massage it. Cover and place the chicken in the fridge and allow to marinate for about 30 minutes.
  3. Thread the marinated chicken onto the skewers with the peppers and onions. There is no right and wrong, I just like to mix it up, so the skewers look colorful and pretty. Place back in the marinade and allow to marinate until you are ready to cook.
  4. Cook the chicken fajita skewers on the grill for about 20-25 minutes. Turn and brush with oil every 10 minutes, or until chicken juices run clear. Allow it to rest for a few minutes.
  5. Serve with rice and beans, tortillas, and salad.

Notes

You may use beef for this as well. I recommend my seasoning recipe, but you may use store-bought too. In the case, you are using store-bought, just add cilantro or parsley, corn oil, and lime juice for extra tasty and tender chicken skewers.

You may use fajita sauce and drizzle over the skewers to keep the chicken juicy.

Everything Bagel Baked Chicken

Yield: 4 SERVINGS
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Resting Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes

Extremely tasty Everything Bagel Baked Chicken Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 Chicken Breast halves with the rib/bone and skin
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley per chicken breast
  • EVERYTHING BAGEL SEASONING:
  • 3 tablespoons Black Sesame Seeds
  • 3 tablespoons untoasted/raw Sesame Seeds
  • 3 tablespoons Dried Onion Flakes
  • 2 tablespoons Poppy Seeds
  • 2 tablespoons Golden Flaxseeds or brown flaxseeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2-3/4 teaspoon Sea Salt or to taste

Instructions

  1. Make “Everything Bagel Seasoning”.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F
  3. Remove and separate bone and rib from each chicken breast as you can see in my pictures above. Leave the skin on because it creates a nice crust.
  4. Add a drizzle of oil on each chicken breast after you separated from the bone and rub top and bottom.
  5. Add Everything bagel seasoning on the plate and coat each chicken breast, top, and bottom with the seasoning, then dust it with dried parsley and place on previously greased/oiled baking sheet.
  6. Drizzle just a tad more oil on top of the chicken.
  7. Bake chicken for 40-45 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken and if the internal temperature thermometer reads 165°F (at the thickest part of the chicken) then the chicken is cooked and safe to eat.
  8. Allow chicken to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing it. This way the chicken is going to be juicy on the inside. All the oil that is leftover on the baking sheet, keep it to drizzle over the chicken before serving.

Notes

You can use chicken tights with the skin, however, if you do not like skin at all please remove it or purchase skinless chicken.

If you don’t have poppy seeds or flaxseeds, please omit, I believe that sesame seeds are must because it gives you that nutty sesame seed aroma, taste, and flavor. You can serve it over rice, salad, sandwiches, wraps, lettuce wraps, etc.

It is really delicious however you serve it. You can cook veggies on the baking sheet that you cooked chicken. Please, do not through away that leftover oil. It got so much flavor.
