1 chicken breast


  • 1 (8 ounce) chicken breast

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • salt to taste

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • garlic powder to taste


  1. Preheat an air fryer to 360 degrees F (182 degrees C).

  2. Brush both sides of the chicken breast with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder on one side. Set chicken breast, seasoned side down, into the air fryer basket and sprinkle the other side with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

  3. Air-fry for 9 minutes, flip, and cook until chicken breast is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 9 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  4. Transfer chicken breast onto a plate and loosely cover with foil. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
