The NuWave oven combines conduction, convection and infrared heating methods to cook food in about half the time required by a conventional oven. Roasting a whole chicken in a NuWave oven results in a tender, juicy bird, ready in about an hour.

Season the bird with salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic and onion powder.

Stuff half a lemon inside the carcass.

Run butter over the outside of the chicken.

Place the chicken breast-side down and cook on high for 20 minutes.

Once the machine beeps, flip the chicken over and cook on high for another 40 minutes. Check the internal temperature with a meat thermometer inserted into the breast. The chicken is done when the temperature reaches 165 degrees.

Let the chicken sit for 10 minutes before carving. This will let the juices settle and make for a much more tasty and moist bird.
