This Chinese Rotisserie Duck Recipe is absolutely delicious and tastes just like the oh so popular Peking duck that you can order in the chinese restaurants.

Chinese Rotisserie Duck

Without all of the hassle of though. I will explain later in this post more about the traditional way that peking duck is made. And how this duck is slightly made the same but in a fraction of the time!

And be sure to serve this along side some Chinese Plum Sauce.

Then you’re sure to be in for treat tonight with this recipe!

HOW TO ROAST DUCK IN THE OVEN

Yes, you can also cook this duck in the oven. By placing it on a lifted baking pan, that has a grill. 

So that the duck is slightly lifted off of the pan. Which allows for the fat to drip away and crisp up the skin!

CAN YOU ROTISSERIE DUCK

Yes, that is what this recipe is for 🙂 You most definitely can rotisserie a duck.

My rotisserie can only cook a duck that is under 4 lbs though as it is a small machine. I used the

An air fryer machine actually! However if you have an outdoor rotisserie for your BBQ, you can do a much larger one than mine.

A 4 lbs duck can feed four people though, with sides of course. 

HOW LONG TO ROTISSERIE DUCK

You want the internal temperature in the thickest part of the thigh to be 180*F. However, slow and a low heat is best. To prevent over cooking. I like to cook this duck at 325 f for 60 minutes!

The Rotisserie I used is the CHEFMAN 6.3 Quart Digital Air Fryer+ Rotisserie

HOW TO ROTISSERIE DUCK

It is done the exact same way you would rotisserie a chicken! 

  • For this recipe though, prior to placing the duck on a spit to be cooked on the rotisserie, you will want to create the marinade. 
  • Then take the duck and slice it lengthwise across the skin and criss cross the other way. This allows the marinade to marinate the whole duck. 
  • Then place the duck in the marinade bowl and marinate for 24 hours. Flipping over half way through to allow it to fully marinate. 
  • Before cooking, allow it to rest on the counter for 30 minutes prior to spitting.
  • Then cook it at a low and slow cooking time for 60 mins, which is key to having the perfect chinese duck.
  • Basting every 20 minutes, during the cooking process is highly recommend. 
  • As it enables it to crisp up perfectly on the outside and remain juicy and tender on the inside.

HOW TO MAKE PEKING DUCK MARINADE

WHAT IS PEKING DUCK

This is a dish that originates from China and has become a very popular dish across North America.

Almost every chinese restaurant will serve this, however you typically have to order it ahead of time, by making a reservation.

And that is because there is an age old century technique that comes to preparing it.

  • Such as blowing air under the skin and basting it in a golden syrup of hot water.
  • Once those steps have been done, it is placed into a oven and cooked to a crispy perfection.

But with my recipe, I have you simply marinating the duck overnight for 24 hours and cooking it on a rotisserie. 

So I call it a CHINESE DUCK recipe vs PEKING DUCK! But the flavors are the same!

USING YOUR ROTISSERIE DOES JUST AS AN AMAZING JOB!

WHAT DOES ROASTED DUCK TASTE LIKE

Duck meat is closer to red meat than chicken. It also has a thicker skin than chicken. When cooked right, it will be tender, moist and a bit fatty. 

WHAT TO SERVE WITH CHINESE DUCK

Note: Don’t forget to keep the carcass/bones to make a homemade duck soup stock. 

Here is a recipe for an awesome soup Duck Pho Soup recipe that uses the carcass of this duck and one breast.
