Roasted Chicken w/Herbs ala Power Air Fryer


I considered this home cooker for a long time before buying 
yet another small appliance that would 
just take up space and collect dust.  
Now I wish I hadn’t waited so long 
as it turned out to be a great purchase!




It’s a 5 quart Power Air Fryer XL.  Using no oil or only a tablespoon or two of oil when cooking foods, this great home cooker lets you bake, steam, grill, sauté or fry your favorite foods, without the guilt.  

It probably resembles a convection oven, more than a deep fryer.  It cooks quickly, it’s easy to use and clean-up is a breeze.



Mmmm, mmm!  Crispy and delicious!


The best part was the delicious taste of the chicken it roasted, with its even, crispy crust on the outside, and its moist and tender meat on the inside. The heap of seasonings ~ rosemary and thyme, garlic and onion powders, was simple and perfect for flavoring up the chicken.  

Most of us like chicken and it goes well with about anything on the side, the price is right and it smells mouth-watering as it cooks.

We were very impressed with the end result of the chicken, and I know this small appliance is a keeper, as is the recipe!  






It was a delectable chicken and I’m really looking forward to a chicken sandwich with a dab of mayo for lunch today!


Roasted Chicken w/Herbs

Ingredients:

1 (5 pounds) chicken, whole
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Place chicken breast side down in the Air Fryer basket.  
Press Power button and set cooking time to 20 minutes at 360°.
When cooking time expires, turn the chicken over and repeat cooking time and temperature.
At end of cooking time, thermometer inserted into chicken should register 165°.

Enjoy!

  1. I was looking at this machine. Very cool that you're enjoying it. I look forward to hearing more about your adventures with it. Question: How does it smell inside the machine? Is there a plastic or die-off smell? We had that with our waffle makers so I'm curious about this machine.

    I LOVE the idea of baking potato wedges without oil.

    1. Hey, Ivy! It's great and there's no smell of plastic or anything from it. It makes a little noise but not as much as an exhaust fan over the stove. I really like it, it's easy to use and clean up is really easy and no splatter like in the oven or stove top. I'm making cod in it for dinner tonight. And potatoes are great in it!

    2. This is great to know. Thanks. We haven't decided yet which way we're going when we move things about in the kitchen yet, but I was looking at this same machine. Looks like a lot of good room inside, too.

      Thanks for your time, Pam.

  4. Dear Pam, This looks delicious!! I like the cornbread too. It is nice that you say it is easy to clean this as well. Sometimes gadgets are so difficult to clean and put together that you just store them away forever.
    Enjoy your sandwich today. xoxo Catherine
