- 1 4-lb Whole chicken
- 6 tbsp Danish Creamery European Style Unsalted Butter (softened)
- 3 cloves Garlic (crushed)
- 1 tbsp Fresh parsley
- 1 tbsp Fresh dill
- 1/4 tsp Sea salt
- 2 tbsp Olive oil
- 1/2 tsp Sea salt
- 1 tsp Paprika
- 1/2 tsp Black pepper
In a small bowl, mash the butter with a fork. Add the garlic, parsley, dill, and sea salt. Mash again. Set aside.
Run your hands under the chicken skin on the breast and legs to separate it from the chicken underneath. Place dollops of garlic butter all over underneath the skin and then press down over the skin to spread around underneath.
Drizzle olive oil over the chicken, over the skin, on both sides. Sprinkle with sea salt, paprika, and black pepper, also on both sides.
Place the chicken in the air fryer basket, breast side down. Cook for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F (176 degrees C).
Flip the chicken over and cook for 25-35 more minutes, until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast reaches 160 degrees F (71 degrees C). Temperature will rise about 5 degrees while resting.
Remove chicken from the air fryer and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before carving.
Serving size: 1/4 of entire chicken
