How to cook a turkey breast in an air fryer:
The first step is to place your raw turkey breast on a plate. Melt the butter in a microwave-safe dish. Add a minced clove of garlic to the melted butter.
Rub the turkey with the melted butter and garlic combo. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
Top with fresh herbs like sage, thyme, and rosemary.
Top with fresh lemon slices and place into the air fryer.
Place in the air fryer basket. Cook at 350 for 25 minutes until the internal temperature is 165F degrees. (*Note cooking time will vary depending on how large your turkey breast is, if it is bone-in or boneless, etc. Please check the temperature with a digital thermometer after 25 minutes.
What Are The Benefits Of Using An Air Fryer?
There are several benefits to using an air fryer when cooking. It’s a wonderful kitchen gadget that everyone should try out at least. Here are some of the benefits to cooking with one:
- They are easy to clean. I totally love that you don’t have to spend a lot of time cleaning your air fryer, unlike a traditional fryer.
- You can make low-fat food that tastes fried. If you are trying to eat food that’s low fat, air frying is a great option. You aren’t frying food in a vat of oil, so it tends to be healthier.
- Things cook more evenly. Because the air circulates all around inside the air fryer, it can heat your food more evenly. It can cook the top and bottom of your food without having to flip it over.
- Air fryers cook foods faster than oven frying. If you are wanting food that’s crispy and flavorful, but don’t have tons of time, consider an air fryer.
- Crispy fries…enough said!
How Long Does Cooked Air Fryer Turkey Breasts Last?
Air fryer turkey breasts will last in the fridge 3-4 days if stored in an airtight container (if you don’t have constantly hungry teens!) You can also freeze it for up to 2-3 months. If you ever notice that the turkey breasts have become slimy or smell bad, then they aren’t good anymore.
Otherwise, you can reheat it in the microwave, oven, or even in the skillet with a little oil. Just heat it until it’s hot then serve.
