How to make turkey breasts in air fryer:
First, preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees. Don’t worry if your air fryer does not have a preheat setting, just let it run at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.
While the air fryer is preheating, melt the butter and mix with the minced garlic. Rub this all over the turkey breast.
In a small bowl, mix all of the other seasonings together. Once combined, rub the seasoning mixture all over the skin of the turkey breast.
Finally, put the turkey breast in the air fryer. It will take about 45 to 55 minutes based on the size of your turkey breast. Make sure the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
Once the turkey comes out of the air fryer, allow it to rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
Can you cook frozen turkey breast in Air fryer?
No, the turkey needs to thaw out first. Make sure to do this!
Tips for turkey breasts in air fryer:
- Each turkey breasts cooks differently depending on the size of your turkey breast. I recommend using a meat thermometer to ensure that your turkey is cooked to the proper temperature before slicing the turkey. It needs to have an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
- Don’t skip over the step allowing the turkey breast to rest. This will help keep the juices inside that make it moist and flavorful.
- Make sure you have the larger size air fryer. I know several people that started out with the smaller size and wished they had bought the larger one first.
