Reheating Rotisserie Chicken Ingredients
Chicken – Start with your cooked chicken. It is okay if you have eaten some of it already and you want to cook the rest. If any skin has been removed from your roast chicken, rub lemon juice into these bits as it will stop it from being dry when reheated.
Thermometer – I don’t use a thermometer with most air fryer recipes, but to check that an air fryer whole chicken is piping hot again as there is nothing worse than food poisoning its best to check with a thermometer.

How To Reheat Rotisserie Chicken Without Drying It Out?

You can’t reheat a chicken at a higher temperature because it will dry out the chicken and instead of reheating the chicken it will cook the chicken again.
Reheat Refrigerated Rotisserie Chicken
Check out this picture of our rotisserie chicken sat in the fridge.
It has leftovers from our minced beef hotpot above it and its just waiting to be reheated in the air fryer.
What we did was grabbed the leftover whole chicken from the fridge, then placed it straight away into our air fryer.
Don’t think just because its chilled, doesn’t mean you have to wait and bring it to room temperature first, because you don’t.
You can literally buy a whole chicken from Tesco’s and then load it into the fridge for dinner the next day and then reheat.
