Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the air fryer to 360°F (180°C).
  • Spray the chicken breast with olive oil, and season with chicken spices. 
  • Place chicken breast in air fryer basket, and set to cook for 14-20 minutes. 
  • The time will depend on how thick the chicken breast is, and will also vary depending on the type of air fryer you have. Chicken is cooked if the juices run clear when you stick a knife in the thickest part. If you are unsure check with a meat thermometer – internal temperature should be 165°F (75°C).
