    We were blown out with the taste. It was the bomb dot com. I loved how it turned out so juicy and tasty. As did my son, he couldn't wait to taste a piece. I will definitely be making this again.

    Delish. I didn’t mix the dry rub with oil, stuffed cavity with celery and onion and thyme after rubbing cavity. Let sit for a good 30 min after cooking tented with aluminum. So moist. Amazing.

    Cooked at 375 for 1 hour, turning halfway. I set the timer for 30 minutes and then turned. That way I didn't have to reprogram the time on the air fryer. Used digital thermometer , 160 in the thigh, 155 breast. Legs tied and breast side down. Rubbed it all over with olive oil and heavily sprinkled with Cajun seasoning. First time using my air fryer and the hubster and I were amazed at how juicy and delicious it was. Definitely making again!

    Delicious! I omitted the salt and brined the bird for a few hours, took it out of the brine and placed it in the refrigerator to dry out the skin for another few hours. Very crispy skin and juicy breast!

    The chicken turned out perfectly! Very crispy on the outside and very juicy on the inside. The temperature was on point. I didn’t use the same exact seasonings or oil type. But I used the exact time and temperature. I used vegetable oil 9-pepper blend, salt, pepper, kickin chicken and lemon pepper.

    Amazing. I changed some of the seasoning, but the method worked. My new favorite thing to make in the air fryer.
