If you’re looking for a delicious and hassle-free way to enjoy turkey breast, this recipe for Air Fryer Turkey Breast is the perfect solution. Made with minimal ingredients, it’s an easy way to enjoy tender, juicy, and flavorful turkey breast without having to cook a whole bird.
To begin, start by seasoning the turkey breast with your favorite spices, such as garlic powder, salt, pepper, and paprika. Then, place the turkey breast in the air fryer basket, making sure it fits comfortably and isn’t overcrowded.
Next, set the air fryer to 375°F and cook the turkey breast for about 25-30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. If you have a larger turkey breast, you may need to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
As the turkey breast cooks, the air fryer will work its magic, creating a crispy and golden-brown skin on the outside, while the inside stays tender and juicy. Once the turkey breast is fully cooked, remove it from the air fryer and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
