Ingredients

  • 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 2 tablespoon Avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Italian Seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon Smoked paprika
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Place the chicken breast on a cutting board and using a sharp knife, cut each breast in half lengthwise (see notes) resulting in 4 chicken cutlets.
  • In a small bowl, mix the seasonings in with the oil and spread the mixture on top of each chicken breast cutlet.
  • Place in the air fryer and cook at 370F for 10-15 minutes.  Check after 10 minutes for doneness with an internal meat thermometer.  Should be 165F.  Continue cooking until temperature reached.
  • Remove from air fryer and serve.

Notes

  • To cut the chicken in half lengthwise - place one hand flat on top of a chicken breast and, holding your knife parallel to the cutting board, slice it horizontally from the thick end to the thin end.  (see photo in post above)
  • Avoid Overcooked Chicken - Cook the chicken breast until the internal temperature is around 165F.  
  • Checking for Doneness - To properly check the meats internal temperature, you need to check the temperature of the center of the meat.
