AN AIR Fryer addict has shared how she had her own kitchen nightmare when she decided to cook a whole chicken in her appliance. 

TikTok user @airfryersam regularly shares recipes she’s made using her kitchen gadget.

The dishes she’s whipped up which have got a big thumbs up include salt and chilli pork ribs and pork belly. 

However, the keen cook recently updated her social media followers on a meal she’d had problems with.

@airfryersam uploaded a video of her attempting to cook a whole chicken for her dinner.

But she wrote alongside it: “The NIGHTMARE nobody tells you about cooking a whole chicken in the air fryer.

The foodie then showed how she’d placed the chicken breast side down in the air fryer tray.

She then warned her followers to “wait for it” as she showed how tough it is to get the legs to fit.

That’s because they continually try to pop back out of the confines of the tray.

Eventually, @airfryersam managed to get them in the tray so that she could shut the drawer and start the cooking process.

But her kitchen struggle was far from over.

When she opened it back up to half way through cooking to turn it over to ensure it cooked evenly, she ran into another problem. 

Once again, the chicken legs had crept up and were hanging out of the sides.

@airfryersam then joked she had to “fight with it for a while” once more.

After several attempts of trying to get it in the right position, she added: “It will not surrender.”

She went on to say: “It will not give up. Just when you think you have won… you haven’t. 

“A real Gordon Ramsay kitchen nightmare. And when you finally think you’ve won… Think again!”

@airfryersam then shows how she thought she’d mastered it – only for the legs to get stuck as she is trying to shut the drawer.
