  1. Combine paprika, thyme, cumin, cayenne pepper, onion powder, black pepper, and salt together in a bowl. Transfer spice mixture to a flat plate.
  2. Rub oil over each chicken breast until fully coated. Roll each piece of chicken in blackening spice mixture, making sure to press down so spice sticks on all sides. Let sit for 5 minutes while you preheat the air fryer.
  3. Preheat an air fryer to 360 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 5 minutes.
  4. Place chicken in the basket of the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes. Flip and cook an additional 10 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

great flavor and very simple. Wife not such a fan of the heat so next time, and there will be a next time, I'll reduce cayenne to 1 teaspoon. Thank you for the seasoning mix.
