– 2 ½ tablespoons BBQ seasoning – 2 teaspoons sea salt – 3 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil – 3 to 5 pound whole chicken – 1 cup chicken broth – 2 tablespoons butter melted

– In a small bowl, combine the BBQ seasoning, salt, and oil.

– Rub the oil mixture all over the chicken, under the skin and over the meat. Place the chicken in the air-crisp basket.

– Pour the broth in the bottom of the inner pot to your Ninja Foodi, and place the basket on top.

– Set your Foodi to HIGH pressure, and set the time for 15 minutes.

– When the time is done, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, and then release. Carefully open the lid.

– Brush the chicken skin with the butter. Set the Ninja Foodi to Air Fry at 400° F for 20 minutes. Cook until the chicken is golden brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the thigh registers 160° F. Allow the chicken to rest for 10 minutes before carving.
