Air Fryer Curry Whole Chicken

This recipe is Whole30, Paleo, Gluten, and Dairy Free.

Did you know you can air fry a 5 pound chicken in an hour? This Curry Whole Chicken marinates overnight with most incredible sauce blend that is put under and over the skin and then its ready to pop in the air fryer and in no time you have the most crispy skin and juicy tender chicken! The leftovers make the best chicken salad for lunches too!


4-5 lbs whole chicken, I like Rastelli's
1 tbsp curry
3 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp salt
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
1/4 cup avocado oil

Combine the marinade ingredients in a blender till smooth (all except chicken)

Wearing rubber gloves, carefully lift the chicken skin and rub the marinade under the skin and also over the skin (both sides of the bird)

Cover and marinate 12-24 hours (the longer the better)

Place chicken in air fryer basket breast side down

Set air fryer to 360 and cook for 30 minutes

Flip chicken and cook 25-30 minutes more or until temperature reads 165˚ at thickest breast part

Let rest 15 minutes before carving
