Recipe type: Main
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 whole chicken, approximately 0.8-1kg
  • 10 pcs garlic
  • 1 small red onion, cut into quarters
  • 3 pcs whole bay leaves
  • 2½ tsp mixed herbs/Italian seasoning
  • 2½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp paprika powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
Instructions
  1. Wash and clean the chicken well. Pat the chicken as dry as possible using paper towels. Stuff the cavity of the chicken with the garlics, red onion and bay leaves. Stitch up the cavity using toothpicks. Rub and massage all the rest of the ingredients (except the honey) all over the chicken. Set aside the chicken overnight in the fridge.
  2. Air fried the chicken on the rack at 180 degrees C for approximately 30 minutes or until cooked. Remove the chicken and using a pastry brush, brush the honey all over it. Bring the chicken back to the still hot air fryer and leave it in for another 5 minutes.
  3. Serve the roast chicken with fries or salad as desired. Enjoy !
Notes
1) To test for doneness of chicken, use a skewer to poke through the thickest part of the chicken, usually the thigh area. If the skewer can go through easily, it means the chicken should be cooked already.
2) Apply the honey too early will cause it to burn easily if air fried for too long. Hence, it is last applied and using the remaining heat of the air fryer to allow it to be absorbed onto the chicken skin.
