Grilled Butterflied Half Chickens and Air Fried Potato Wedges
- 1 5lb whole chicken
- 1 tbsp potato slayer seasoning by Fire and Smoke Society
- 1/4 cup avocado oil
- 4 medium russet potatoes cut into wedges
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 1/4 cup cooking oil
- 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
Start by preheating your grill to 300°F. This is a low heat that will help ensure the chicken cooks through without burning on the outside.
Take your whole chicken out of the package and use paper towels to pat it dry. This helps remove any excess moisture from the chicken, which will help it brown better on the grill.
Use kitchen shears to cut along the breast bone and butterfly the chicken. This will help it cook more evenly on the grill.
In a small bowl, mix together the potato slayer seasoning and avocado oil. This seasoning has a blend of herbs and spices that will add a delicious flavor to the chicken.
Rub the seasoning mixture all over the chicken, making sure to get it into all the nooks and crannies. This will help ensure the chicken is well-seasoned and delicious.
Place the chicken on the preheated grill and let it cook for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature, making sure to insert it into the thickest part of the chicken.
While the chicken is cooking, prepare the potato wedges. Cut the russet potatoes into wedges and add them to a bowl. Season them with salt, pepper, and potato slayer seasoning, making sure to coat them evenly.
Preheat your air fryer to 390°F. This is the perfect temperature for cooking the potato wedges, as it will help them get crispy and golden brown.
Place the potato wedges in the air fryer and cook for 20 minutes, or until they are crispy and golden brown. You may need to shake the basket a few times during cooking to ensure the wedges cook evenly.
While the potato wedges are cooking, prepare the sauce. Mix together the mayo, cooking oil, and buffalo wing sauce in a small bowl. This sauce has a delicious tangy and slightly spicy flavor that pairs perfectly with the chicken and potato wedges.
When the chicken is done cooking, remove it from the grill and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing. This will help the juices redistribute throughout the chicken, making it juicy and delicious.
Serve the sliced chicken with the air-fried potato wedges and the sauce on the side for dipping. This is a delicious and satisfying meal that is perfect for any occasion!
