Christmas Chicken

The warm spice blend that is rubbed on this roast Christmas chicken is what makes it perfect for serving for Christmas dinner.

This delicious chicken is cooked in the air fryer, which gives you crispy skin and frees up oven space for cooking your favorite side dishes. 


Crispy: Air frying chicken is not only fast but also gives the chicken incredibly crispy skin, and everyone knows that’s the best part.
