Air Fryer Chicken Breast

Chicken breast cooked in the Air Fryer comes out moist and juicy!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 1 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 6 ounces each
  • seasoning, such as Penzey's Mitchell Street or Northwoods
  • salt, omit if seasoning blend contains salt
  • freshly ground black pepper, optional


  1. Heat Air Fryer and Prep Chicken. Preheat Air Fryer to 375° F. for three minutes. Pat chicken breasts dry on each side. Sprinkle seasoning blend (and salt and pepper, if using) on each side of the chicken breast.

  2. Cook the Chicken. Spray the Air Fryer pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place seasoned chicken into the Air Fryer. Cook until chicken breast reaches 165°F, about 10 minutes for a 6-ounce breast.

  3. While it’s fine for the chicken breasts to touch, don’t stack them on top of each other. Cook in one layer. Repeat as needed. If cooking more than one batch of chicken, wipe out the pan between batches with a paper towel. This prevents smoking. Spray pan after wiping.
  4. Rest and Serve. Remove the chicken breasts from the Air Fryer. Allow to rest for five minutes before serving.
