Air fryer rotisserie chicken is a favorite with its crispy skin on the outside and juicy meat on the inside. It allows you to put tacos, wraps or chicken soup on the table easier and faster.
It’s kinda like a warm hug on a cold day – it just brings comfort to your soul (well, if it’s seasoned right).
Have you ever wondered if there is a way to bring that same experience to your home kitchen easily?
Well, check it out – if you have an air fryer, you can easily make a rotisserie chicken in your own kitchen.
Either type of air fryer will work, whether it’s a large basket type or one with a rotisserie spit.
Ok, so first things first. Let’s talk about the key ingredients. For this air fryer rotisserie chicken, you’ll need dried spices, garlic, olive oil and butter.
Now, let’s get started –
Step 1: Seasoning the Chicken
In a small bowl, mix together your salt, dried seasonings, oil and melted butter. Rub this mixture all over the chicken, making sure to get it in all the nooks and crannies, because a seasoned skin is a crispy skin.
Step 2: Trussing the Chicken
Using kitchen twine, tie the chicken legs together. This will pull the bottom end of the chicken up and keep the chicken from rubbing against the sides of the air fryer.
Step 3: Cooking the Chicken
Set the air fryer to 375°F and cook for 40 minutes. Then, flip the chicken over and cook for an additional 30 minutes.
Step 6: Check the Temperature
Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken thigh, making sure not to touch the bone. The internal temperature should be 165°F.
If it’s not there yet, give it a few more minutes in the air fryer.
Step 7: Resting the Chicken
Once the chicken is fully cooked, take it out of the air fryer and let it rest for 10 minutes.
This will allow the juices to redistribute, ensuring a juicy and tender chicken. Then shred, shred, shred.
And there you have it, a delicious and juicy rotisserie chicken made right in your air fryer.
