Rinse chicken and remove any gizzards/neck inside the bird.
Place chicken in a large bowl and add in buttermilk, hot sauce, garlic and salt.
Cover and refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours up to overnight. Flip bird half way through marinating.
Remove chicken from buttermilk and shake off excess
Mix together remaining ingredients
Coat 1/2 seasonings on side of bird facing up
Place chicken in air fryer breast side down and coat other side with remaining spice mix
Air fry at 375 for 30 minutes
Flip with tongs (it's not easy if it's a big bird) and check temperature of chicken. Depending on current temp will let you know how much time to add to the chicken.
If chicken is in between 100-125 - add 30 minutes, if between 125-140 - add 20 minutes, if between 140-160 - add 10 minutes.
When temp is between 160-165, remove chicken from air fryer and set on platter. Let rest for a few minutes while you get the rest of dinner on the table.
