  • Season all sides of your whole chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Place the whole chicken in your Airfryer with breast down and bum up in the air. Any bits that are still exposed (when sat in the Airfryer) brush with the marinade.
  • Cook for 20 minutes at 185c/365f.
  • Then after 20 minutes turn the chicken over so that the breast is pointing up. Brush the marinade over the breast and any other exposed skin.
  • Cook for another 20 minutes at the same temperature.
  • When the chicken has beeped. Remove it from the Airfryer and put to one side to rest.
  • While it is resting cook the wedges. Slice up the mixed potatoes into wedges shapes and place in the Airfryer for 20 minutes on 185c. Sprinkle them with a little dried paprika before cooking.
  • Remove the potato wedges once cooked and give them a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
  • Serve the potato wedges with the Nandos Whole Chicken.


I always use a pastry brush for adding the marinade to my chicken. It makes less mess and then gives you an even coating.
Sprinkle your salt and pepper from above (think your shoulder height). This will give a much better coating.
Because the chicken has just cooked with the olive oil in the Airfryer, it means that you can cook the potato wedges oil free and they will still be moist and crispy.
I love to sprinkle fresh herbs over the breast of my whole chicken when I have turned it to cook the breast side. It gives it a fantastic glow and rosemary or chives work best.
