Recipe Intensity: Easy


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Fresh lemon wedges for serving


  1. If you have time, you can marinate the chicken breast fillets in a mixture of olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper for about 30 minutes to enhance the flavor. However, marinating is optional, and you can proceed directly to step 3 if you prefer.
  2. After marinating (if applicable), preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Pat the chicken breast fillets dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  4. Rub the chicken breast fillets with olive oil on both sides.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, paprika, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  6. Season the chicken breast fillets generously with the spice mixture, ensuring both sides are coated evenly.
  7. Place the seasoned chicken breast fillets in the air fryer basket in a single layer, leaving space between them for air circulation.
  8. Air fry the chicken breast fillets at 400°F (200°C) for about 12-15 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking, until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and the exterior is golden brown and crispy.
  9. Once done, remove the chicken breast fillets from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing or serving.
  10. Optionally, serve the air fried chicken breast fillets with fresh lemon wedges for added flavor.
  11. Enjoy your juicy and flavorful air fryer chicken breast fillets as a main dish alongside your favorite sides.

Note: Cooking times may vary slightly depending on the thickness of your chicken breast fillets and the efficiency of your air fryer. Always use a meat thermometer to ensure the chicken is cooked through.

Feel free to adjust the seasoning and spices according to your taste preferences. Enjoy your delicious and healthy air fried chicken breast fillets!
