How long to air fry chicken breast

Usually, it takes between 15 and 20 minutes to air-fry a chicken breast. Different things, like the thickness of the chicken breast, the temperature of the air fryer, and whether the chicken is fresh or frozen, affect how long it takes to cook. This is very important: the chicken must be cooked all the way through to 165°F (75°C). It will also cook faster in an air fryer if you slice the chicken breasts very thinly instead of thickly. With a meat thermometer, you can tell if the meat is done.
