There are so many ways to reheat rotisserie chicken but one of the best ways is to use is the air fryer. How long to cook it depends on if the chicken is in larger pieces or shredded and if the skin is on or off. The air fryer circulates heat all around the food so it’s important to avoid overcrowding the air fryer basket.

Time Saving Tips

  • Shred rotisserie chicken and freeze in single serving zippered bags with the date labeled on the outside. They will keep about 8 weeks and are perfect for adding to individual soups, salads, and sandwiches.
  • Be sure to preheat the air fryer before cooking or reheating any food. The air fryer works best by circulating hot air around the food, cooking it from the outside and keeping the food crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside!
