How to make air fryer chicken breast recipe

  1. First make sure that the chicken breast slices are not too thick or cooking will take longer. If necessary, you can beat them with a meat tenderizer until they are about 1 cm thick.
  2. Place the chosen spices together with the salt on a plate and mix them well. “Bread” the chicken slices on both sides and place them in the air fryer basket. It's important not to overlap them so if they don't fit, cook them twice.
  3. Spray them with a couple of puffs of oil spray and cook them at 180°C for 7-8 minutes , turning them halfway through cooking. Make sure they are well cooked before serving them: the times often vary from model to model.

Serve the chicken breast with a side dish of your choice. For a light dinner you can opt for a green salad, but if you want to pamper yourself then prepare the potatoes in the air fryer and an excellent homemade mayonnaise .

The chicken breast will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator, well covered with cling film. Since it will tend to dry, we recommend using it in addition to your salads.
