Expert Advice

  • Here are expert cooking instructions for guava chicken that you can air fry:
  • To get the most flavor, marinate the chicken for two to three hours before cooking. The chicken will be more tasty the longer it marinates.
  • Use skinless, boneless chicken thighs for this recipe as they have more taste and are more juicy than chicken breasts. If you would rather, you may use chicken breasts, just watch out that they don’t get too done.
  • Save some marinade for basting: After the chicken has marinated, save aside some marinade to baste the bird as it cooks. This will contribute to the chicken’s moisture retention and flavor.
  • To ensure that the chicken pieces cook evenly, don’t pack the air fryer too full; instead, leave some room between them in the basket. If you are too crowded the chicken might not cook through in the basket.
  • Check the internal temperature of the chicken with a meat thermometer to make sure it’s done. For chicken to be safe to eat, it must be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  • Serve the guava chicken with a side of rice to counterbalance the sweetness of the sauce. Rice or quinoa work nicely with this dish.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs: Before serving, sprinkle chopped fresh herbs, like parsley or cilantro, over the chicken to give some color and freshness.


  1. One-pound chicken breasts, deboned and skinless
  2. One tablespoon each of honey and olive oil
  3. One tsp of paprika
  4. One tsp red pepper flakes
  5. One-third teaspoon of kosher salt
  6. one-third tsp black pepper
  7. One cup Guava Sauce


  • For 3–5 minutes, preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a small bowl, combine honey and olive oil; whisk to achieve a thinner consistency. Toss the chicken chunks with the olive oil and honey in a sizable mixing basin. Season to taste and well mix to coat.
  • Add the chicken chunks to the air fryer basket and lightly coat it with nonstick cooking spray. Assign Five minutes of cooking time. After tossing the chicken in the guava sauce, put it back in the air fryer for an additional 4 to 7 minutes.
  • Enjoy with a fresh cilantro garnish!
