Step 1

Brush the chicken breast with olive oil.

Step 2

Sprinkle one side with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Step 3

Place the breast in the air fryer basket seasoned side down. Then season the other side.

Step 4

Cook at 360° for 9 minutes (for 8 oz chicken breast). Then flip the chicken breast over and cook for another 9 minutes. Larger chicken breasts need more cook time, and smaller ones need less time (see Recipe Notes).

Step 5

Open the air fryer immediately so it doesn't continue cooking in the heat.

Step 6

Take the temperature in the thickest part with an instant read thermometer. The temperature should read about 158°-160° F. If it is below that, close the lid of the air fryer to let the chicken cook in the residual heat for a few minutes. Then check it again.

Step 7

Place it on a plate and loosely cover with foil and let it rest for 5 minutes. It will continue to cook in the residual heat (and the juices will go back into the meat). Then after 5 minutes take the temperature again. The temperature should be at least 165° F.

Step 8

Serve immediately, or save for meal prep or to have for another recipe.
