Air Fryer Turkey Breast
Sick of turkey breast turning out dry? No more! This easy air fryer turkey breast is the most foolproof way to make juicy, flavorful, definitely-not-dry turkey every time.
Maybe the only thing better than how it tastes is how easy it is to make. Just throw together a 5-ingredient seasoning mix, rub it into the turkey with some oil, and toss it in the air fryer for about an hour.
Seriously. It’s that easy.
I know that I’ve personally tried about every cooking method under the sun to keep my turkey breast from drying out. I can’t believe the solution was so simple!
So whether you’re cooking for a smaller group on Thanksgiving or simply want to enjoy tender, juicy turkey breast for an easy weeknight dinner, this air fryer turkey breast is the way to go.
Can I Cook A Frozen Turkey Breast In My Air Fryer?
Well, you can… but I wouldn’t recommend it. You’ll end up with a drier turkey breast, which is exactly what we want to avoid!
Instead, just transfer the frozen turkey breast to the fridge and let it thaw overnight. That way, it’ll be ready to go the next day, and you don’t have to risk your poultry turning out like sawdust.
Can I Make Turkey Breast Without An Air Fryer?
Of course you can. Folks have been making turkey breast for centuries!
But the reason I like to use the air fryer is simple: I’ve never found a more foolproof way to make a juicy turkey breast. It’s perfect every time!
Other methods like roasting or cooking on the stove always turn out dry. Not to mention, the turkey gets drier every time you reheat it.
The only exception is the slow cooker, which is well known for making even tough cuts of meat fork-tender… so tender that they fall apart! So really, it’s great if you want shredded turkey, but not if you want a nice, whole turkey breast.
So if you don’t want to use the air fryer, then there are plenty of other ways to cook up your turkey. But you may need to hunt around for some inventive ways to keep the meat nice and juicy!
