How Long to Cook Chicken Breast in an Air Fryer
How long you should cook your chicken in the air fryer depends in part on the size of your raw chicken breasts:
- Small chicken breasts: 7 to 10 minutes
- Medium chicken breasts: 10 to 12 minutes
- Large chicken breasts: 12 to 16 minutes
For the best results, set your air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and flip the chicken halfway through to ensure that it cooks evenly.
Your chicken breasts are done when they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. The best way to check this is with a meat thermometer. Keep in mind that with air-fried chicken, you may need to let it rest for a few minutes after taking it out of your air fryer, and the carryover heat will continue to cook it a little more while it's resting.
