Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat air fryer to 400F degrees. For my Air Fryer, I just turn it on to 400F for about 8 mins while I season the chicken. Using a towel paper, pat the chicken breasts dry and rub with olive oil.

  • Open the Air Fryer basket and using a meat thermometer check the internal temperature of the chicken breasts. If they reach 160F degrees, it’s ready to eat, but if not cook for more 2 to 5 minutes. The time will depend on the thickness of your chicken breast. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Get similar-sized chicken breasts so they cook evenly in the air fryer.
  • Do not stack the chicken breasts as they will not cook through. The hot air from the air fryer needs to reach every part of the chicken breasts.
  • To store: Store leftover chicken breasts in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge. 
  • To reheat: You can reheat in an air fryer or microwave when ready to eat. You can also eat chicken cold.
  • To freeze: You can freeze chicken breasts in a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 3 months.
