  • 1 whole chicken 3 to 3.5 pounds
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon kosher salt


  • ½ tablespoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Trim excess fat and remove the giblets and all the stuff from the cavity. Pat chicken dry with paper towels.
  • Mix the olive oil with the spices in a small bowl.
  • Rub the marinade all over the chicken. You can truss the chicken legs using a kitchen twine so that they stay in place.
  • Preheat air fryer to 350F for 2 to 3 minutes. Place the chicken breast side down, in the Air fryer basket. Tuck the wing tips inside the chicken on both sides, so they won't get burned. Cook for 45 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken breast-side up and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes. Or until the internal temperature in the thickest part is 165F.
  • Remove the chicken from the Air fryer and let it rest for 5 minutes. Carve and serve.


  • Store- the cooked leftover chicken in the fridge in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days.
  • Reheat chicken in the Air fryer at 320F until warm.
  • Freeze - cooked chicken in the freezer up to 3 months.
