Turkey Breast (Air Fryer)

1 Turkey Breast


Air fryer turkey breast
First, you want to make sure you have a fully defrosted turkey breast that will fit in your Air Fryer basket. Some of those bone-in breasts are huge and literally won’t fit in your everyday basket air fryer. I go for a breast that is 4lbs or less. I use my 5.3 Qt Air Fryer basket to cook my bone-in breast. 
Rub mayonnaise and seasonings all over the turkey breast. I also season under the skin.
Preheat your Air fryer to 360 degrees Fahrenheit. I lay my bone-in turkey breast on the side and cook for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, I open the air fryer basket and flip it and cook it for an additional 25 minutes. Your turkey breast is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit on a quick read thermometer.  
Allow your turkey breast to cool on a cutting board for a few 5-10 minutes before slicing.
My boneless turkey breast generally has a net around the meat. I like to keep the net on the meat so that the meat cooks together and slices better after cooking. If you choose to remove the net before cooking, your turkey breast will cook faster. 
Preheat your Air fryer to 360 degrees Fahrenheit. Season your turkey breast. Air fry on 360 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour, turning every 15 minutes. I find that my boneless breast takes a little longer than bone-in because of the way it is wrapped in the netting. Use a quick read thermometer to ensure the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
