How to Truss and Rotisserie a Whole Chicken in the Vortex Plus/Omni

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I am by no means a professional chef. Actually, in my younger years, I hated cooking. So the idea of trussing a chicken (10 years ago I probably would have had to look up that word in a dictionary) is intimidating. There are lots of ways to truss a chicken depending on how you are going to cook it, but I found this way is easy and holds the bird together really well while it is revolving on the rotisserie.

The video below is a step by step guide showing you how to truss or tie your chicken in order to prepare it for the rotisserie. I also show you easy ways to set up and place the rotisserie spit for the Instant Vortex Plus and the Omni.

You can also use this method of trussing a whole chicken for cooking in the oven or in other air fryers or rotisseries.

If you scroll down I also have the instructions written out with pictures if you prefer printing it out.

  1. Hi Lana,
    You are just adorable!
    I am on a MAC, and cannot use Flash to view your latest video. Any way you can put it on YouTube?
    Thank you!

  2. I couldn’t figure out how to find the instructions with the pictures to print it out. The video is very useful, but I could see that having a print out would be handy while actually doing the trussing. Thanks.
