How To Reheat Rotisserie Chicken Air Fryer?

If you’ve ever cooked a rotisserie chicken and spent way too much time figuring out what to do with the leftovers, this guide is for you.

The easy answer is to air fry it. Cook it in the same fashion that you would like your own oven-fried chicken and enjoy an even crispier crust than when it was served in-store.

Materials Needed:

  • Rotisserie Chicken
  • Air Fryer
  • Spatula

Step-By-Step Guide:

  1. Place rotisserie chicken in the air fryer on a wire rack.
  2. Set temperature to 375 degrees F.
  3. Set a timer for 20 minutes and allow the chicken to cook until crisp.
  4. After 20 minutes, allow the chicken to cool for slightly less than 5 minutes, then use your spatula to move it onto a plate.
  5. Enjoy!

Tips And Tricks

If you’re in a hurry and need to get your rotisserie chicken on the table quickly, use a lower temperature and shorter time. I find that cooking at 350 degrees F for 8 minutes works exceptionally well.

I don’t recommend cooking frozen rotisserie chicken. Only use chicken that has been cooked and then allowed to cool before assembly. Rotisserie chicken should be absolutely thawed before it’s placed in the air fryer.

If you have time, allow the rotisserie chicken to cool for a few minutes before removing it from the rack and allow it to finish cooling on a plate, this allows the flavors and juices to meld together nicely.
