Air Fryer Turkey Breast

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast with Gravy is my go-to when I want a Thanksgiving meal without the fuss! But I wanted to make a quick breast so I can test some new turkey leftover recipes. Some favorites from the archives are this Leftover Turkey Harvest Cobb Salad, or this Leftover Turkey Sweet Potato Fritatta, to name a few.

Turkey Breast made in the air fryer.

I love my air fryer, and have been sharing tons of air fryer recipes with you for quite some time. You may even know I even came out with the Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook (affil link) this past May!

A friend recently asked if you can make turkey breast in the air fryer, so of course I ran out to the store, and looked for a small enough breast that would fit in the basket. It wasn’t hard to find, this was made with a 4 pound bone-in breast which was pretty average in size.

Tips:

  • Depending on the size of your air fryer, a 4 to 5 pound breast should fit fine in a 5 quart or larger air fryer. Just be sure the height of the meat is below the top of basket before you start.
  • Time will vary depending on the size of your breast, to be sure it’s cooked perfect I recommend using an Instant read thermometer to test the internal temperature.
  • If your breast is frozen, thaw it overnight in the refrigerator.

How To Carve a Turkey Breast

  • Allow the cooked breast to rest on a carving board for at least 15 minutes under foil loosely tented to allow the juices to redistribute.
  • With a large sharp knife, run the knife along side of the breast bone using long even strokes.  If you are using a serrated knife use a sawing motion.
  • Follow the bone all the way toward the bottom of the board.
  • Bring your knife around to the front and connect where you started carving at the top of the breast bone.
  • Cut down the ribs. Follow it around and down to the bottom to connect to the bottom of the first breast bone cut.
  • Pull the meat away from the bone and slice. Repeat the same on the other side.

Air Fryer Turkey Breast comes out so moist and juicy and perfectly cooked with a beautiful deep golden brown skin. And bonus, it cooks in a fraction of the time it would in the oven!

  • 4 pound turkey breast, on the bone with skin (ribs removed)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher
  • 1/2 tablespoon dry turkey or poultry seasoning, I used Bell’s which has not salt
  • Rub 1/2 tablespoon of oil all over the turkey breast. Season both sides with salt and turkey seasoning then rub in the remaining half tablespoon of oil over the skin side.

  • Preheat the air fryer 350F and cook skin side down 20 minutes, turn over and cook until the internal temperature is 160F using an instant-read thermometer about 30 to 40 minutes more depending on the size of your breast. Let is rest 10 minutes before carving.

Without the skin the smart points will be 0.
