  • 2
    Place chicken in air fryer basket, standing against sides of basket if necessary. Set to 350°F; cook 15 minutes. Turn chicken; cook 5 to 8 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F).

Expert Tips

  • Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer does not have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings.
  • Standing chicken against the sides of the air fryer basket prevents the chicken pieces from touching, which helps the chicken cook evenly.
  • These simple chicken breasts are great for an easy weeknight dinner, but they are an easy, versatile way to prep chicken for other uses. Make it on the weekend and use in chicken salad, bowls or sandwiches throughout the week.
