Prepare chicken breasts in the airfryer with a little fat


  1. Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board and cover with a large sheet of cling film. Pound evenly thin with a rolling pin, meat tenderizer, or the palm of your hand.
  2. Optional: Place the chicken on a plate and sprinkle with kosher salt. Store uncovered in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 day.
  3. Remove the chicken breasts from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper (if you didn’t salt the chicken, add the salt now).
  5. Place the chicken breasts in a large bowl and drizzle with the olive oil. Sprinkle the spice mixture on top. Toss the meat, spreading the spices evenly on both sides.
  6. Preheat the Airfryer to 190°C. Place the chicken breasts in the Airfryer and cook for 6 minutes.
  7. Remove the basket from the fryer and use kitchen tongs to gently turn the chicken breasts over. The total cooking time depends on the air fryer model and the size of the chicken breasts. Smaller chicken breasts only take about 8 minutes, larger ones may take 14 or more minutes. Check the meat frequently towards the end to make sure it doesn’t dry out.
  8. Place the chicken breasts on a plate. Cover and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy!
