Step 1

In a small bowl, mix the salt, pepper, garlic powder and oregano together.

Step 2

Spray the chicken breasts on the presentation side (smooth side) with cooking spray of choice. I use avocado oil spray.

Step 3

Sprinkle some of the seasoning blend on each chicken breast, and use hands to pat and help the seasoning stick.

Step 4

Place the chicken breast, seasoned side down, in the air fryer.

Step 5

Spray the bare side, which is now facing up, and sprinkle on the remaining seasoning.

Step 6

Cook for 10 minutes on 360 degrees.

Step 7

Flip over (tongs are extremely helpful), and cook until internal temperature reaches at least 165, about another 8 to 12 minutes on 360 depending on the size of your chicken breasts. (Mine were about 7.75 ounces each, and 10 minutes on the 2nd side was perfect.👌🏻That's 20 minutes total. See cook time notes section below.)

Step 8

Remove the basket from the air fryer, and allow the chicken to rest for about 5 minutes before cutting into it. This lets the juices redistribute and helps the chicken be juicier.
