Rotisserie-Style Whole Chicken

Rotisserie-Style Whole Chicken

This recipe is created by our dear Tefal brand ambassador Lorena Lys. "This chicken is SO delicious and it comes out juicy on the inside and nice and crispy on the outside. The best part is that there is no preheating required in your Tefal air fryer." - Lorena


  • 1.5-2 kg chicken
  • 2-3 tbsp garlic herbed butter
  • 2-3 tbsp of dry rub spices (salt, pepper, sweet paprika, cumin)


  1. Wash and clean chicken and pat dry. Spread about 2 tbsps of the herbed garlic butter between the breast and the skin of the bird.
  2. Rub the dry rub all over the chicken on both sides. Place the chicken - breast side down in the larger basket of your Ultimate Fry Deluxe air fryer.
  3. Set the temperature to 180 degrees and the time to 30 minutes. Once this is complete, open the drawer of your air fryer and turn the chicken over – breast side up.
  4. Change the temperature to 200 degrees and cook the chicken for an additional 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your bird. Using a meat thermometer, check that the internal temperature of the bird is 75 degrees.
  5. Once cooking is complete, let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Lorena's Tip:

Here's how I made the herbed butter.Β This is fantastic on chicken, steak and steamed vegetables.

  1. Process 250 grams of soft butter with 2 garlic cloves, Β½ cup chopped parsley, Β½ cup chopped rosemary, Β½ cup chopped thyme, 1 tsp of paprika, 1 tsp of curry, 1 tbsp Dijon mustard, 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.
  2. I rolled the above into a log in cling film and put it in the fridge. Then you can cut in slices and freeze.
