Notes

  • Be sure to pat the chicken dry.
  • If the chicken breasts are thin, decrease the amount of time.
  • If air frying more than two chicken breasts, do not overcrowd the air fryer basket to ensure even cooking. Cook in batches, if necessary.
  • Feel free to season the chicken with your favorite seasoning blend. 
  • Alternatively, marinate the chicken in a mixture of yogurt and spices for a few hours before cooking for extra tenderness and flavor.
  • Check the internal temperature at the thickest part of the breast to ensure it’s cooked through. It should read around 162°F (72°C). The chicken will continue to cook and reach the safe consuming temperature of 165° (74°C) while it rests.
