  1. 4 boneless chicken breasts approximately 1 lb. or 450g
  2. 1 cup mayonnaise or Greek yogurt
  3. 1 tsp garlic powder
  4. 1 cup Parmesan cheese divided
  5. 1 tsp seasoning salt
  6. ½ tsp black pepper
  7. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  8. 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  9. 1 teaspoon dried thyme
How To Make Tender Chicken Delight
  1. Begin by cutting each chicken breast into three equal pieces.
  2. Place the chicken pieces in a bowl and let them marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
  3. Preheat your air fryer to 360°F (180°C) for about 3-5 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise (or Greek yogurt), half of the Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, seasoning salt, and black pepper. Mix until well combined.
  5. Spread the mayonnaise mixture over each chicken breast, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  6. Sprinkle the tops of the chicken breasts with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
  1. Place the chicken breasts in the air fryer basket in a single layer, leaving some space between each piece. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook the chicken in batches.
  2.  Cook the chicken in the air fryer at 360°F (180°C) for 18-20 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking time. The chicken is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and is golden brown on the outside.
  3. Once cooked, remove from the oven and serve this delightful dish to your eagerly awaiting guests or family members.


  1. Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheating ensures even cooking and crispiness. Most air fryers require just a few minutes to preheat.
  2. Seasoning: Season your chicken generously with your favorite herbs, spices, and marinades for maximum flavor.
  3. Lightly Oil: While one of the benefits of using an air fryer is reducing oil, a light coating of oil on the chicken can help achieve a crispy exterior. Consider using cooking spray or brushing the chicken with a small amount of oil before cooking.
  4. Arrange Evenly: Arrange the chicken pieces in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Avoid overcrowding to allow proper air circulation, which ensures even cooking and crispiness.
  5. Monitor Cooking Time: Cooking times may vary depending on the size and thickness of the chicken pieces and the specific air fryer model. Start with the recommended cooking time in your air fryer’s manual and adjust as needed.
  6. Flip or Shake: To ensure even cooking, flip the chicken halfway through the cooking process or shake the basket gently to redistribute the pieces.
  7. Check for Doneness: Use a meat thermometer to ensure the chicken reaches a safe internal temperature of 165°F (75°C). This ensures that the chicken is fully cooked and safe to eat while maintaining its juiciness.
  8. Serve Immediately: Once the chicken is cooked to perfection, serve it immediately to enjoy it at its crispiest and juiciest.
