How to Cook a Frozen Whole Chicken in 1 hour with a Ninja Foodi


  1. Pour 1 Cup of water into the Ninja Foodi and place whole frozen chicken in the Air Fryer basket. If Chicken won't fit then remove the air fryer basket.
  2. Place the Pressure Cooker Lid on the Ninja Foodi and pressure cook on high for 40 mins. Make sure the vent is selected to SEAL! After the 40 mins carefully release the pressure and remove the pressure cooking lid.
  3. Apply some oil to one side of the whole chicken, then sprinkle some salt and pepper and some of your favorite chicken seasoning.
  4. Air Fry for 10 mins at 400 degrees. Then flip the whole chicken and repeat step 3 and Air Fry for another 10 mins at 400 degrees.

I wouldn’t risk it after looking at these reviews

It depends on the amount of lbs. Your chicken is. Add or subtract for weight. They very in weight. Also adjust for freezer temperature. Deep freezing runs slighly colder. Use a meat thermometer to check if cooked all the way thru. Then you get the perfect roasted chicken.


My 5lb chicken was still frozen on the inside inside after the total time. The top layer was cooked perfectly though. Went to shred it and serve it and the middle was still raw.


Well, it is the maiden voyage of my Foodie 5 in 1. The 4lb. Chicken is on pressure right now, we’ll see how it goes. Thanks for the recipe….truly appreciate it.


Unfortunately the 40 minute pressure cooking for my 6lb frozen chicken was way to long, I PR and it was already falling apart making it very difficult to turn. I still crisped it but it ended up being dry. I think I will cut back the pressure cooking to 30 min and see what happens.
