Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 4-5 pound Whole Chicken
  • 1 lemon, zested then quartered
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon thyme, chopped
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 onion, cut in wedges
  • 3 cloves of garlic, lightly smashed
  • 2 bunches broccolini, ends trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Small Bowl
  • Medium Bowl
  • Step 1

    In a small bowl, mash together the softened butter with the herbs, lemon zest and generous salt and pepper.

  • Step 2

    Very carefully, starting at the neck end of the chicken, separate the skin from the meat on the breast. Slather some of the butter mixtures under the skin of each breast. Then cut a small slit in the skin of both thighs and do the same. Finally, take the remaining butter mixture and slather the whole outside of the chicken. Season and stuff the cavity with the lemon wedges, onion and garlic.

  • Step 3

    In a bowl, toss the broccolini with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Step 4

    Install crisper plates into both baskets. Place chicken in the Zone 1 basket, then insert basket into the unit. Place broccolini in Zone 2 basket, then insert into unit.

  • Step 5

    Select Zone 1, select ROAST, set temperature to 350°F, and set the time to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Select Zone 2, select AIRFRY, set temperature at 375°F, and set the time to 8 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Select SMART FINISH. Press center of dial to begin cooking.

  • Step 7

    When the timer is done, be sure to check the internal temperature at the thickest part of leg and breast. You want it to be 165 degrees. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before carving. Serve alongside broccolini.
