This Pampered Chef Air Fryer Rotisserie Chicken delivers big flavour with only 3 ingredients.
Nothing can be easier but you will need a rotisserie attachment for you air fryer.
I let the chicken cook half way and then carefully took the chicken on the rotisserie rod out of the fryer and set it on a tray. I slathered on the mayo/parmesan mix and then gently returned the rotisserie to the oven to finish.
You have to be careful since everything is hot at this stage but with the extraction tool for the rotisserie it worked just fine.
Some of the parmesan mixture will make a nice crust on the chicken breast as you can see in the photos. Some of it slid off and landed in the drip tray.
I didn't want to let any of that crispy parmesan mixture go to waste so I scooped it up and served it along side the slices of chicken. You may want to drain it on a paper towel since that tray also captured all the chicken fat drippings as well.
It is a shame I can't fit a a tray of baby potatoes under the rotisserie to catch the chicken and parmesan dripping. There just isn't room in the cavity for that. But...you might be able to toss gourmet potatoes or potato wedges in the drippings and air fry while your chicken is resting.
One of the things I like best about air fryer recipes is that crispy exterior and juicy, tender inside of every thing you air fry.
I served this with Air fryer Asparagus with Prosciutto. I made some plain and I wrapped some in Prosciutto. Both were tender and delicious. The Prosciutto wrapped asparagus added some more Italian flare to the meal and was naturally my husband's favourite.
I cooked the asparagus while the chicken was resting.
Dinner in under an hour with very little hands on time. The rotisserie and trays all cleaned up beautifully with a little soak in the dishpan!
Wine Pairing for Air Fryer Rotisserie Chicken with Parmesan
Any crisp white wine would work here like a Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc (especially if you are serving the asparagus on the side), or crisp Chardonnay. If you want to be a bit more adventurous look for an Italian Lugana or Soave.
If you are a red wine lover looks for a medium bodied, low tanning red like a Barbera, or Valpolicella.
Air Fryer Rotisserie Chicken With Parmesan
- Air Fryer with rotisserie
- 1 3-4 lb chicken
- 3 tablespoon ground parmesan
- 3 Tbsps mayonnaise
- Rinse chicken and remove giblets if any. Tie the legs with kitchen twine. Insert the rotisserie skewer through the body of the chicken and secure the blades to keep chicken in place.
- Combine parmesan and mayonnaise and set aside.
- Air fry on rotisserie setting (400°) for 22 minutes.
- Carefully pull the rotisserie out and set chicken on a platter.
- Rub parmesan/mayo mixture over the chicken, particularly on the breast and leg areas.
- Return rotisserie to the fryer and cook another 23 minutes. Internal temperature of chicken should be at 165°.
- Allow chicken to sit 5 minutes before removing rotisserie and carving. Note that some of the parmesan/mayonnaise mixture may have slid off the chicken onto the drip tray. If so scoop out the crisped blobs and add to the serving platter of sliced chicken.
Note: My Air fryer is a Pampered Chef one and I absolutely love it! I have not tried others but based on my research the Pampered Chef with its 2 tray and cube configuration is more versatile than others. You can actually do a 3-4 lb rotisserie chicken in it! it toasts, roasts, bakes, reheats, dehydrates besides air frying. No folks... this is not a sponsored post - I am just sharing my enthusiasm!
