Tank Cooks Buttermilk Air Fryer Whole Chicken

To cook a whole chicken in an air fryer, you will need: 

1 whole chicken, about 3 lbs, an air fryer large enough to fit a whole chicken – at least a 6-quart basket and your preferred seasoning (salt, pepper, herbs, etc.) and buttermilk. 

  1. Rub the chicken with the salt, making sure to coat it evenly. 
  2. Marinate chicken for a few hours or as long as overnight in buttermilk in the refrigerator. 
  3. When ready to air fryer, remove from buttermilk, pat dry, and let it rest to room temp 1 hour before. 
  4. Place the chicken in the bottom of the air fryer basket, and start the chicken breast side down. 
  5. Cook the chicken at 350F for 25 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. 
  6. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before carving and serving.
