How To Use Rotisserie In Air Fryer
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Your air fryer (of course)
- Metal skewers or rotisserie forks (whichever you prefer to use)
- Your favorite meats and vegetables (boneless chicken pieces, whole jalapenos, baby potatoes, etc.)
Start by preparing your ingredients. Boneless chicken pieces should be placed on a metal skewer, while you can pierce through more oversized items like potatoes and jalapenos with rotisserie forks.
Next, turn your air fryer onto the “rotisserie” setting (denoted by a picture of a chicken rotating in a circle). We recommend setting the temperature around 320°F for boneless chicken and 400°F for vegetables.
Place your ingredients into the Breville air fryer basket, then close the door and let it do its thing! You can keep a watchful eye on your food to ensure nothing is burning, but there’s no need to flip or rotate anything until the air fryer prompts you to do so.
Once finished, remove your food from the rotisserie and serve as desired!
