Tender and Juicy Air Fryer Chicken Breast is golden crispy outside and moist and delicate on the inside. This is bursting with flavor and so good! Chicken breasts can be so finicky when cooking because they can dry out so fast, but the air fryer takes the guesswork out for you and you will have the juiciest air fried chicken breasts that are great for dinner or any of your meal prep needs ! Just 3 simple seasonings and a little avocado oil spray are all you need!

Ingredients for Air-Fryer Chicken Breast

Substitutions for the Air-Fryer Chicken Breast

  • Swap organic chicken breasts for organic chicken thighs: Set your air fryer timer for 8 minutes and then check for doneness with a probe thermometer, as they are usually smaller than chicken breasts and may cook at a faster rate.
  • Use different seasonings depending on what you are cooking the chicken for! I use the basic salt, pepper & garlic powder blend when prepping chicken that will be used for things like chicken salad, wraps, salad toppers, etc.. If you want chicken for tacos, use taco seasoning! If you are doing chicken Italian, use Italian seasoning! You get the idea! Any seasonings will work, and it is fun to experiment!

How to make Air-Fryer Chicken Breast

  • Preheat air fryer to 370 degrees
  • Spray both sides of chicken breast with avocoado oil spray
  • Mix together 1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon 16 mesh pepper, and 1.5 tsp of garlic powder.
  • Evenly and lightly sprinkle seasoning mixture over both sides of the chicken breast. Don’t overly seasoning, you can always add more to taste after it cooks!
  • Place chicken in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Air fry at 370 for 8 minutes. After 8 minutes flip the chicken and cook for 2 more minutes. After 2 minutes check to see if the chicken is cooked through to 165 degrees. If it is not cooked through to 165, cook at 2 minute intervals – checking temp every 2 minutes- until cooked through until 165.
  • Let rest for 5 minutes after cooking, then slice and serve.
