One of the easiest and tastiest dishes you can make in an air fryer is a chicken breast. Succulent and juicy every time. Cooked at a higher temperature for a shorter period will give a golden crispy look. Just awesome.

    I did my chicken breasts for 13 minutes at 400F and they were still only 120F inside when I took them out. Recommend raising the temperature and/or cooking time.

      Probably because you did multiple chicken breasts instead of one at a time. Do one at a time for required results

    I do 350 for 25 minutes. Comes out perfect and juicy.

    I decided to go in between, did 375 for about 18 minutes. Very nice, loved the color, almost rotisserie like. The only downside is the limited cooking space, I was still cooking chicken after dinner was done. But now there are healthy leftovers!

      Thanks Leslie. It’s good to see yet another success.

    We cooked ours for 350 for 25 minutes and it was as tough as beef jerky.😣 Would recommend checking it sooner. We put just the spiced four on it and it did not brown. They were boneless, skinless, not sure if that mattered.

      Hi Adelina,

      If you cook it at a lower temperature for longer, then it will likely result in less tender chicken. The trick is to cook it faster at a hot temperature so the skin browns but doesn’t dry out the internal meat. Also being skinless can have an effect on the browning the outside. I would suggest cooking at a higher temperature, for a shorter period of time, and perhaps spraying a bit of oil on the breast (since it’s skinless). The oil should help brown the outside. Also note that the thickness of the chicken breast can also make a difference. It’s also possible it was just the particular chicken that was tough. Others have had success with various times and temperatures.

    I cooked my chicken breasts on 360 for 25 minutes but it was still raw in the middle so I had to microwave it till it was done I am not impressed at all

    I followed this recipe exactly — I think the trick is to preheat the AirFryer. My chicken breast (1) came out perfect restaurant quality. I am a pretty good cook and was not expectly much since this was my first use of the AirFryer. Excellent recipe — I would probably give it a 9-10. Thanks so much

    I cooked 2 boneless breasts for about 18 minutes at 380. I brushed just a bit of oil on them before cooking. I also brushed on some BBQ sauce with 5 min left and it was 160 inside and juicy. Preheat your fryer beforehand

    Put chicken seasoned in airfryer…no flour…cook until crispy…best chicken ever!

    Prepared two(2) chicken breast; boneless/skinless, one 8oz and one 11oz. Preheat to 390; cooked 13 minutes….was not enough. Insides were still a bit raw so suggest in thick(1inch or more) cook 15-18minutes. We will filet our chick breast next time & try it for 13minutes. Will temperature check when this last 10minutes is done. Prep was spices, light coat of olive oil, Preheat 390, cook 13. As stated above; it may take longer depending on thickness. NOTE: Ours was thawed. Internal temp 160, juicy, delicious.

    The problem people have with undercooked chicken is most likely due to the thickness of the breast. If you are using full sized fresh chicken breasts, I suggest slicing the breast in half lengthwise before frying. 390 degrees for 13 minutes with a preheated air fryer worked out perfectly for me after doing this.

    I just cooked chicken in my Cozyna air fryer for the first time, based on this recipe. I coated it with McCormick Smokehouse Maple spice, sprayed it with olive oil, and put in the (preheated) fryer basket. Cooked for 6 min. @ 400, flipped it, another 5-6 min. @ 400. It is PERFECT. I did slice the chicken half-breast so it was thinner, about 1″ instead of 2″, and it plumped up in the fryer and came out 1.5″ thick. I’ll do this again. Thank you!

    Also consider the size and wattage of the Air Fryer being used.

    20 minutes at 390 for four full breasts — perfect! I rubbed olive oil and seasoning on the breasts and added bbq sauce the last 5 minutes. Loved it. Thanks!

    I used 1 boneless skinless breast with an egg wash seasoned flour coating Then sprayed.with Pay on both sides. of chicken and the basket. Preheated air fryer for 390. When done preheating, I cooked for 15 min. The chicken was perfect. No pink meat but so juicy that when I cut it it dripped clear juice. Absolutely perfect. This is the first time I have ever used an air fryer.
    My only complaint is this is a NuWave Brio 3 qt and although box says it includes a manual and cookbook. I have seen several comments about this air fryer stating these were also missing from their box. You have to get in touch with NuWave who then tells you to download from internet. WHY? I do not have a computer or printer and use an Android tablet. I could do this from someone elses printer but why should I bear the cost of paper and ink and have to attach to binder or staple sides so I have a book. No manual, Can’t file for warranty. I am calling again to tell them I want this mailed to me and hope they will.

    Can I cook four chicken thighs bone in at the same time in the air fryer and for how long

    • gleff October 29, 2018 at 6:09 am - Reply

      Hi Valerie,

      You can cook 4 thighs at the same time, but it would largely depend on the size of your air fryer. If they fit without overlap the cooking time shouldn’t vary much, but if there is overlap you may want to shake the contents of the basket more often to ensure you get even cooking, and perhaps even add a little more time for cooking. Your circumstances will differ to others, but remember you can open the air fryer while cooking to check on it, so you should be able to get it perfect. Just remember though that when you cook meat on a bone, it’s important to cook it properly so if the meat is overlapping with other meat, it may not get hot enough close to the bone hence why you would want to add a bit more time.

    Chicken thighs worked really well as they seem to have more natural oil in them. It was amazing and so easy. If using boneless chicken then cut thicker pieces in half. Always better to check , rather than risk overcooking it.

    Does anyone know how to make french toast in the air fryer? All I get is hard, not burnt, toast.
