Juicy Seasoned Chicken – The Preparation

I love a well seasoned piece of chicken, that is juicy and uses quality spices!

The key is to coat the chicken breast with quality spices and make sure not to overcook. I like to use butter to accentuate the flavor of spices. Overcooking happens when the internal temperature has reached 165F and the juices begin to boil out of the meat until its dry. The best way to avoid overcooking is to use an internal meat thermometer. It is a life saver, literally!

Using two chicken cutlets, cut them in half. Set the now four pieces aside. In a small bowl, mix seasonings with soften butter. Butter is key to providing the delicious flavor for this dish. Once thoroughly mixed, spread the seasoned butter over each cutlet.

Now it is time to watch the magic happen. Place each cutlet in the air fryer on 370F for 10-15 minutes. I like to check it after about 10 minutes with my meat thermometer. The temperature should be 165F, if not, cook for an additional 3 minutes or until temperature is reached.
