Table of Contents


2 Medium/Large Chicken Breasts (200g-250g)
Seasoning and Marinade of Choice
Optional dry rub:
½ teaspoon Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Chili Powder
½ teaspoon Onion Powder
½ teaspoon Paprika
¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
Pinch of Pepper


Preheat air fryer to 400°F (205°C) – don’t worry if it doesn’t heat up all the way – you just want it hot.
Add the chicken to a large plastic bag, and use a meat tenderizer to pound the chicken until it’s about ¼ inch thick.
Add dry rub ingredients to a small bowl, and mix until combined.
Sprinkle an equal amount of the rub on both sides of the chicken, and work it into the meat with your hands.
Coat the air fryer basket with baking spray, and add the chicken breasts to it.
Set the air fryer to 400°F and cook for 8 minutes (or until the chicken reaches 162°F). Flip the chicken at the 4-minute mark.
Remove from the air fryer, and let the chicken rest for a few minutes. It should reach 165°F while resting.
