1. Pat the chicken completely dry. Squeeze the lemon over the
chicken and season with salt and pepper. Put the lemon half into
the chicken’s cavity. Drizzle the chicken with olive oil. Rub with herbs
and garlic cloves. Put the garlic cloves into the chicken’s cavity
with the lemon. Truss if desired.
2. Place prepared chicken on a microwave- and oven-safe pan and
place in the Cuisinart® 3-in-1 Microwave AirFryer Plus. Select Combi
Cooking (CC-1), and set the temperature to 400°F and time for 60
minutes. The chicken is done when golden and crispy, and the chicken thighs register 165°F on an instant-read thermometer.
3. Carefully remove and let the chicken rest for 10 minutes; carve
and serve.
