When I received my new air-fryer oven, I already new what the first dish I wanted to try- rotisserie chicken. Many years ago, I ate at the Kenny Roger’s Roasters in Athens, Greece. These restaurants were in random places internationally. I love the flavor.
This recipes is pretty much a copy of the chicken and the corn muffins, which takes cornbread to another level. serve with BBQ baked beans and slaw.
WINE NOTE: A Californian oaked Chardonnay or any Burgundy style Chardonnay is a good pairing with the chicken and the muffins.
