How To Reheat Rotisserie Chicken?

1. Microwave

The microwave is the quickest and most convenient way to reheat rotisserie chicken. To start, place your rotisserie chicken on a microwave-safe plate, cover it with a microwave-safe lid, or wrap it in microwave-safe plastic wrap.

Set the microwave to 50% power and reheat the chicken for 2-3 minutes per serving. Be sure to check the temperature of the chicken before serving, as it can heat unevenly in the microwave.

2. Oven

Reheating rotisserie chicken in the oven is a great way to retain moisture and crisp skin. To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place the rotisserie chicken on a baking sheet and cover it with foil. Reheat the chicken in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

3. Stovetop

If you want to reheat your rotisserie chicken and add a little extra flavor, try reheating it on the stovetop. Start by heating a little bit of oil in a skillet over medium heat.

Once the skillet is hot, add the rotisserie chicken to the skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until the chicken is heated through. This method is great for adding a little extra crispiness to the skin.

4. Slow Cooker

If you have time to spare, reheating your rotisserie chicken in a slow cooker is a great way to keep it moist and flavorful. Start by placing the rotisserie chicken in the slow cooker and covering it with your desired seasonings or sauces.

Cook the chicken on low for 2-3 hours or until heated through. This method is great for adding additional flavor to your rotisserie chicken.

5. Air Fryer

This is another great way to get the crispy skin, preheat your air fryer to 400F. Place the rotisserie chicken in the air fryer and cook for 8-10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165F.

Regardless of the method you choose, check the chicken’s internal temperature with a meat thermometer before serving to ensure that it has been heated to a safe temperature. And enjoy your delicious and moist rotisserie chicken!
