Air Fryer Bone-In Chicken Breasts


        Air Fryer Bone-In Chicken Breasts


2 split chicken breasts

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning more to taste

¼ teaspoon garlic powder


Preheat air fryer to 375°F.

Rub chicken with oil and evenly coat with the seasonings.

Place in the air fryer basket and cook for 25-27 minutes or until chicken reaches 165°F.


Depending on the size of your air fryer, you can double this recipe and make 4 chicken breasts. 

Olive oil helps the skin crisp and the seasonings to stick.

Use any seasoning you love. Premade lemon pepper is generally quite salty so I do not add extra salt to this recipe, season as needed.

As an option, you can also add vegetables to the air fryer for the last 10 minutes of cooking time.

Chicken breasts can vary in size so use a meat thermometer to ensure they don't overcook. (Check it early).

Chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165°F, I usually take it out a few degrees before as it will continue to cook once you remove it from the oven.

Always allow chicken (and other meats) to rest before serving. This helps to redistribute the juices and makes for a juicy chicken breast.
