  • ▢2 split chicken breasts
  • ▢1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ▢1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning more to taste
  • ▢¼ teaspoon garlic powder


  • Instructions 
  • Preheat air fryer to 375°F.
  • Rub chicken with oil and evenly coat with the seasonings.
  • Place in the air fryer basket and cook for 25-27 minutes or until chicken reaches 165°F.
  • Notes
  • Depending on the size of your air fryer, you can double this recipe and make 4 chicken breasts.
  • Olive oil helps the skin crisp and the seasonings to stick.
  • Use any seasoning you love. Premade lemon pepper is generally quite salty so I do not add extra salt to this recipe, season as needed.
  • As an option, you can also add vegetables to the air fryer for the last 10 minutes of cooking time.
  • Chicken breasts can vary in size so use a meat thermometer to ensure they don’t overcook. (Check it early).
  • Chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165°F, I usually take it out a few degrees before as it will continue to cook once you remove it from the oven.
  • Always allow chicken (and other meats) to rest before serving. This helps to redistribute the juices and makes for a juicy chicken breast.
