An easy recipe for making a savory, juicy turkey breast in an air fryer. Using olive brine gives the breast flavor and also keeps it tender. I use spicy Tabasco® Olive brine for extra kick. Serve with cranberry sauce.

  • Take the bag out of the fridge and allow to rest until the breast reaches room temperature.

  • Preheat an air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Cook the breast in the air fryer for 15 minutes. Flip over the breast and cook for 5 minutes until turkey breast is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). If internal temperature is lower, keep cooking at 5 minute intervals until the correct temperature is reached.

The flavor on this was fantastic. For the brine I used jalapeño stuffed olive juice and dried spices. I used bone in, skin on 1/2 breast. It was a little under 3 pounds. I set the temp and time for 350 @ 30 minutes. I placed it skin side down and flipped it halfway. When I checked the temp it was about 120 degrees. I added another 8 minutes. Checked again 140. I add another 10 minutes and let it rest for 8. When I cut it it was undercooked at the bone. I sliced it and put the lice’s in the air fryer for 5 minutes it was tough. I’ll try it again and make sure to time it with the rest of dinner. Read More
