Best Air Fryer Whole Chicken Spatchcock Style

I have yet another confession. I seem to have developed an addiction to air frying foods. It all started a couple of months ago when we received our 8 qt air fryer. Now I had tried air frying before, but not with a machine that could actually fit enough food for a family of 5. That was a game changer in our kitchen, and one of the first things I wanted to nail down was an air fryer whole chickenchicken recipe. We hope that you love this Best Air Fryer Whole Chicken Spatchcock Style recipe.

When Perdue Farms approached me and asked if I would like to try some of their new offerings, this was the first recipe that came to mind. The chicken used here is a Sonoma Red Organic Pasture Raised Whole Chicken. So what is a Sonoma Red chicken? Well, for one, it is a chicken that is slower growing that your average supermarket bird. The distribution of meat is a bit different as well; the thighs tend to be a bit bigger, while the breast and wings a bit smaller. The meat also has more flavor and better texture, at least in my opinion. This is a bird that doesn't need a marinade to taste great. It's a bit more expensive, but that's ok by me; I'll pay a bit more for a higher quality product that I know was humanely raised.

Now I don't know if you know this, but Perdue does more than chicken. Over at the brand new Perdue Farms website, you can find all sorts of high quality artisan products that go beyond chicken. Favorites that I have tried so far include the Niman Ranch Kielbasa (really good) and the Fat Tire St. Louis Style Pork Ribs. Both products were excellent, and I cannot wait to try the Niman Ranch Ribeye Steak (I'm a sucker for a good ribeye).

Every single item that is sold on the Perdue Farms site is farmed with sustainability and responsible animal care in mind. Green practices are a priority, as is raising animals that are free of hormones and antibiotics. Check out the Perdue Farms Website when you have a moment; I think you will be surprised at what you find. Now let's cook some chicken!

Place your chicken breast side down on a cutting board. Remove the spine of the chicken with kitchen shears. To do this you make two cuts, one on each side of the spine, from one end of the chicken to the other.

Cook in the Air Fryer at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes, or until the chicken is done. You want the skin to become crispy and golden, and you want the meat cooked through.

    Some good recipes for a air fryer

    First I was so excited to find someone with the powerxl air fryer oven. I have one and I’ve never seen anyone with one. I love it.  
    Second, this was the best roasted chicken I’ve ever made. I didn’t have smoked paprika on hand so I used regular paprika. I also had a 5.2lb chicken and added 10 minutes to the cooking time. Let it sit for 10 minutes and it was super juicy, cooked perfectly, crispy skin and very flavorful!!  Five stars and this will be added to my regular rotation of dinners! Thanks for posting!!!!
