Cooking Moist Chicken Breast in Air Fryer

My experience with air fryer has taught me three important things to note while cooking perfectly moist chicken breast in air fryer. i.e. 

  1. Preheat Air Fryer - This ensures even cooking from the start. Chicken cook golden browns from outside and juicy inside.
  2. Adjust the timings as per the side/make and model of air fryer. (more on this ahead)
  3. Flip Chicken Breast half way through cooking. This ensure that chicken cooks evenly. Also gives good idea of how long it will take to chicken to be fully done. (very important to avoid dry chicken breast)

Cooking Chicken Breast in Air Fryer

I used Ninja Foodi Max XL Air Fryer (5.5 quart) and cooked boneless skinless chicken breast for this recipe. As shown in pictures above, process of cooking is very simple:

  1. Marinate Chicken Breast for at-least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat air fryer and place marinated breast on air fryer rack. Cook 5 minutes.
  3. Flip after 5 minutes and add seasoned beans.
  4. Cook additional five minutes or until chicken is cooked through. If cooking beans, make sure to stir twice (every 2 mins) for even cooking. 

Air Fryer Timings for Cooking Chicken Breast

Time to cook chicken breast in air fryer vary based on two things:

  1. Size of Chicken Breast. For example, when air fried at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, smaller chicken breasts will be ready in 10 minutes where as large chicken breasts will take 12-14 minutes.
  2. Size of Air Fryer.  For example, if an air fryer is bigger in size (i.e. more space to circulate hot air), it will cook faster than smaller. So to ensure proper cooking, always preheat air fryer for 3 minutes. After first 5 minutes of cooking, flip chicken and then cook 5 minutes, then on keep an eye and check every 2 minutes for doneness.
