Put Your Air Fryer To Use With This Healthy Family Dinner Recipe

iFamilies are spending less and less time sitting around the same dinner table together. While conflicting or generally busy schedules are likely to blame, we’re certain that there’s time for everyone to still get together and enjoy each other’s company. The risk we run of not getting together for sit-down dinners over a quality meal is the fraying of family ties. If you are truly short on time, we recommend putting an air fryer to use. These appliances fry food much the same way the conventional deep fryer does, but it uses super-heated air in lieu of unhealthy frying oil. With that in mind, we’re here to offer a recipe for roasted chicken with herbs; it’s something you’ve likely cooked more times than you care to count in the oven, but this one has a twist – see if your guests can tell the difference.

You’ll need:

– a 5-pound whole chicken with skin
– 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
– 1 teaspoon of onion powder
– 1 teaspoon of sea salt
– 1 teaspoon of black pepper
– .5 teaspoon of thyme
– 2 teaspoons of olive oil


  1. Season the chicken and rub with olive oil.
  2. Let sit at room temperature for 45 minutes before cooking.
  3. Place the chicken breast side down in the fry basket of your air fryer appliance. Press “M” button and scroll to the “Chicken” icon.
  4. Press the “Power” button and adjust cooking time to 20 minutes at 360 degrees.
  5. When time runs out, carefully turn the chicken over and press the “M” button. Scroll to the “Chicken” icon.
  6. Press the “Power” button and adjust cooking time to 20 minutes at 360 degrees.
  7. Test the chicken with a thermometer for proper temperature, which should be 165 degrees.
  8. Let rest for 20 minutes before serving.
