The best Air Fryer Rotisserie-Style Chicken

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine Kosher salt, sweet paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried thyme, and ground sage to create the spice blend.
  2. Pat the whole chicken dry and spritz it with olive oil. Rub the spice blend all over the chicken evenly.
  3. Optional: For a neater appearance, tightly tie the chicken’s legs together with a piece of butcher’s twine. You can refrigerate the chicken at this point, uncovered, until ready to cook.
  4. Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C).
  5. Place the seasoned chicken in the air fryer basket, belly side down.
  6. Air fry the chicken for about 25 minutes, until the top is browned. Then, carefully flip the chicken and continue cooking for another 25 minutes, or until the juices run clear and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) when checked near the thigh joint with a pairing knife or meat thermometer.
  7. Once the chicken is done, let it rest for 10 minutes before carving and serving. The skin is optional but adds extra crispiness and flavor.

No Air Fryer? No Problem (Oven Version): 

To bake the chicken in the oven, preheat it to 400°F (200°C) and roast the chicken until it’s golden, crisp, and the juices run clear when you insert a knife between the leg and thigh joint or when the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C), which will take about 1 hour or longer depending on the size of the bird.

Serving Suggestions: 

Enjoy the Air Fryer Rotisserie-Style Chicken with your favorite sides, such as mashed potatoes, green beans, or roasted veggies. The versatility of this dish makes it a perfect choice for various meals and gatherings.

Storage and Reheating: 

Any leftovers can be refrigerated for up to four days or frozen for up to three months. Reheat the chicken in the air fryer or oven until it’s warmed through and enjoy the deliciousness all over again.
