Air Fryer Whole Chicken

I absolutely ADORE my Air Fryer. There are so many things you can make in it. Since it’s just the two of us, we often enjoy a small, whole chicken during the week. I used to take loads of time the night before preparing a brine for the chicken that it would soak in overnight. With the Air Fryer, there is no need to brine a chicken. This air fryer whole chicken recipe turns out fantastic every single time. It’s healthy, tastes great and is super easy to make. Here is the recipe:
