Preparing the Chicken

Before you can air fry a whole chicken, you need to prepare it. Start by washing the chicken inside and out with cold water. Pat it dry with paper towels and season it with salt, pepper, and any other desired seasonings. Place the chicken in the air fryer basket and set aside.

Air Frying the Chicken

Once the chicken is prepared, you can begin air frying it. Preheat the air fryer to 375°F. Place the chicken in the air fryer basket and cook for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, check the internal temperature of the chicken with a meat thermometer. The internal temperature should be 165°F. If it is not, continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes.

Finishing the Chicken

Once the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the air fryer and let it rest for 10 minutes before carving. This will allow the juices to redistribute throughout the chicken, resulting in a juicy and flavorful meal. Enjoy!
