  • First, preheat the Air Fryer (this is the one I use & absolutely love using!) to 360F. Next, combine 2 tablespoons of avocado oil with 2 tablespoons of Meat Seasoning and 1 teaspoon of sea salt. Mix until combined.
    Spices and oil inside the bowl ready tp rub the chicken.
  • Rub chicken with spice and place it breast side down inside the air fryer. Cook for about 50 minutes. After, flip chicken on the other side and cook for 10 more minutes or until the temperature inside the chicken reaches 165F.

  • I like to use Organic Grass-fed Chickens
  • You can totally use any of your favorite poultry spice (let me know what is your favorite spice, I would love to try it!), I usually measure 1 tablespoon per pound. 
  • I would highly recommend using oils that can be cooked in high temperatures like avocado oil or grape seed oil.
  • Store leftover chicken meat in airtight container inside the fridge for up to 3 days.  
  • Or use leftover chicken with bones to make this amazing Chicken Bone Broth
