Vortex Air Fryer Roasted Chicken

The rotisserie feature is awesome in the Vortex. The trick is – you can only cook items up to four pounds. If you do bigger you risk breaking the rotisserie. It doesn’t really matter because you can cook and awesome five pounders just using the bake or air fry feature.

If you have some leftover, consider making a pot pie in your air fryer!

    Do I turn the chicken over when I get a prompt or not?

      You don’t need to – it will cook entirely with breast up.
