Roast Chicken And Potatoes

I am sure you are thinking in your head of all your favourite chicken and potato recipes. It might be KFC and enjoying their fried chicken along with potato wedges, or that amazing roast chicken dinner you had with an air fryer whole chicken and some air fryer roast potatoes.
For me, my first thought was our favourite little café in Portugal that we loved that did the most amazing lemon and garlicky chicken with some sauteed potatoes. It was truly delicious and the inspiration behind this Greek roast chicken and potatoes recipe.
Using your favourite Mediterranean flavours such as garlic, lemon, oregano and balsamic vinegar along with a whole chicken and some potatoes cut into wedges.
Simply delicious and perfect for those of you with an air fryer that would love to learn a simple method for combining chicken with potatoes.

Or you can do just air fryer whole chicken and potatoes or try out some air fryer chicken breast with potatoes.
The possibilities are endless.
Can I Put Raw Chicken In My Air Fryer?
Yes, you can put raw chicken in your air fryer. Chicken in the air fryer is delicious and is super simple and similar to when you grill chicken in a George Foreman Grill or similar. It’s just faster!

Chicken And Potatoes Air Fryer Ingredients
Chicken – We used one medium whole chicken in this chicken with potatoes recipe. I find that a larger chicken just wont fit to the size of the air fryer especially when doing potatoes at the same time.
Potatoes – We used 4 medium white potatoes. You can also use baby potatoes if you prefer, I just go with what I have and what is in season.
Oil – Then we also used some extra virgin olive oil to help with the crispy skin on the chicken, to make the potatoes crispy and to stop the chicken from going dry. We also used some balsamic vinegar too as it really adds to the Mediterranean flavour and reduces your oil.
Flavouring – For that typical Greek chicken and potatoes flavour we added lemon, garlic, oregano and salt and pepper.
Can You Recommend An Air Fryer?
I often get asked which air fryers I recommend and which one I use. In 95% of our air fryer recipes, we use either the Philips Air Fryer XL or the Cosori XL because they are the best ones, we have found out of many air fryers we have tried over the years. You can click on the links above and read up on them.
Plus, we recommend you head over to our air fryer recipes category as we have more than 500 tried and tested everyday air fryer recipes and have been air frying for 10+ years.
How To Air Fry Chicken & Potatoes?
- Prep. Start by doing your chicken prep. Place half a lemon and 4 garlic cloves into the cavity of the chicken and then use string to tie up the chicken legs.
- Cook. Now we need to give the whole chicken a heads start on the potatoes so place the whole chicken into the air fryer basket breast side down and rub oil onto the skin and season with salt, pepper, and oregano and then air fry for 20 minutes at 180c/360f.
- Prep. Then whilst the chicken is cooking, prep the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into wedges and then add to a bowl with everything else, including extra salt and pepper and the remaining oil. Mix well with your hands and wait for the beep of the air fryer.
- Beeps. When the air fryer beeps turn the chicken over and re-add the oil and seasonings to the breast side. Then in the gaps around the chicken add the potatoes and also the lemon wedges. Then air fry roast chicken and potatoes for a final 28 minutes at the same time or until the chicken is fully cooked and the potatoes are crispy.
- Serve. Then serve the chicken with the potatoes and the lemon wedges.
You have now made a delicious potato and chicken dinner!
