This Air Fryer Crispy Whole Chicken will be the best chicken you ever ate! Who would have thought you could have tender, juicy chicken in less than an hour with the most delicious crispy skin flavored with herbs and spices. The leftovers, if you are lucky enough to have them make the best chicken salad! I have at least a dozen recipes for different flavored chicken salads!

6 Cloves garlic
1 tblsp Lime juice
1 tsp each Salt and pepper
2 tsp Smoked paprika
1 Tblsp Cumin
1 tsp Thyme
2 Tblsp Coconut aminos
3 Tblsp Olive oil
