Roasted Chicken

There’s nothing homier than a whole roasted chicken, fresh from the oven (or in this case, the XXL Digital Air Fryer). This recipe makes great use of the XXL’s large capacity and convection technology, which cuts cooking time by nearly half. 

Product used: NutriBullet XXL Digital 7L Air Fryer


  • 2kg Chicken
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1 bunch Thyme
  • 1 Onion, medium, quartered
  • 1 Lemon, quartered
  • 6 cloves Garlic

Ingredients (under the skin)

  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Minced Herbs (Parsley & Thyme)
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic

Ingredients (rub)

  • 1 tsp Piprika
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. Unpack the chicken and remove any giblets from inside the cavity. Season inside and out with salt and pepper.
  2. Stuff the cavity with thyme, onion, lemon and garlic.
  3. Prepare the olive oil and herb mixture, and distribute evenly under the chicken skin.
  4. Combine the rub spices together and cover the outside of the chicken with the rub.
  5. Select POULTRY setting and adjust cook time to 45 minutes. Press START and allow the Air Fryer to preheat for 3 minutes.
  6. Spray the Cooking Basket with olive oil before placing chicken inside, breast side down.
  7. Cook chicken, flipping halfway at the 20 minute mark. Spray top of chicken once flipped, and cook for the remaining time. With a cooking thermometer, check for internal temperature in the thickest part of the chicken to be at 75°C.
  8. Let the roasted chicken rest for 10 minutes before serving.
