1. Remove the crisper plate from the Cosori Smart Air Fryer basket.

2. Pat the chicken dry inside and out with paper towels.

3. Place the lemon, orange, shallot, thyme, garlic cloves, and rosemary into the cavity of the chicken. Tie the legs together with kitchen twine.

4. Rub1 one tablespoon of the olive oil over the chicken, then season the outside of the chicken with salt.

5. Place the chicken breast-side down directly into the air fryer basket, without the crisper plate.

6. Select the Chicken function, adjust the temperature to 365°F and time to 45 minutes, then press Start/Pause.

7. Combine the chicken stock, orange zest and juice, lemon zest and juice, minced herbs, and honey in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. 

8. Simmer and lower the heat, until reduced by half. 

9. Place the cornstarch into a small bowl and add 1 tablespoon of the glaze. 

10. Whisk together and pour back into the saucepan. Turn the heat up to medium-high and cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce has thickened, then turn off the heat and add the salt and pepper.

11. Flip the chicken over so the breast is facing up once the timer goes off.

12. Select the Chicken function, adjust the temperature to 365°F and time to 25 minutes, then press Start/Pause.

13. Remove the chicken when done and transfer it to a platter or tray to rest for 10 minutes.

14. Whisk the juices from the bottom of the air fryer basket into the glaze for extra flavour if desired.

15. Serve the chicken with the warm citrus honey glaze poured over the top.
