Well, I am happy to say this chicken method might be the best yet! We used chicken thighs/drumstick attached style of chicken with this simple dry rub - so just a method here. Lightly drizzle Extra Virgin Olive oil onto the chicken and rub onto the chicken to coat well then add your dry rub. Let sit on the counter for 30 minutes before cooking.
Preheat the air fryer at 380 degrees for 5 minutes. Place the chicken skin side up into the basket and cook 15 minutes, then turn over and cook for 5 minutes. Then turn over to skin side up once again and continue to cook for remaining 10 min. So in total: 35 minutes to cook. The skin is so crispy yet the chicken is super moist and flavorful - plus easy clean up. Just wipe out the air fryer with paper towel and wash in hot soapy water with a good rinse. So love this - no messy oven to clean and clean up is a breeze!
In this post I wanted to share some new information on Canadian Chicken. I did a post way way back 2010??? Back then if you bought regular store bought chicken it was still loaded in anti-biotics. Not so any more Canada - Yayyyyy! I spoke to 3 different grocery store butchers and they all gave the same information. All chicken (if given anti-biotics at all) must have a 3 month window before they are processed to ensure all the anti-biotics are out out the chicken's system. Wow...this is huge in my world and 1/2 the cost of free range or organic.
This said we still try our best to have free range or organic as much as possible and we still do Vegetarian meals twice a week so we think it evens out to be a healthy choice overall for us.
Delicious Air Fryer chicken - serve with any side dish.
