Best Air Fryer Turkey Breast Recipe

Anyone else looking forward to Turkey Day in a few weeks? We love our Thanksgiving turkey. I have fallen in love with my air fryer, so I had to give a bone-in turkey breast a try before the big day. O-M-G! This is the BEST turkey I've ever eaten! Super tender and juicy. I didn't even brine the turkey and it was the juiciest turkey I've ever eaten. If you have an air fryer, you MUST make this for the holiday. Heck, I make this turkey almost monthly since I got my air fryer. It is so easy to make. The turkey meat is great for casseroles, soups, and sandwiches.

How to Cook Bone-In Turkey Breast in the Air Fryer

Cooking a bone-in turkey breast in the air fryer is super easy. I started by cutting the ribs off of the turkey breast. You want to cut the ribs off of the breast so it will sit flat in the air fryer basket. I just used a pair of scissors and they came off in a jiffy. It was super easy to cut them off the breast.

Next, I marinated the whole turkey breast in some Italian dressing and Worcestershire sauce. I let it marinate overnight in the refrigerator. If you don't have that much time, just let it hang out in the marinade for at least an hour. 

Once the turkey breast has been marinated, remove it from the marinade and place in the air fryer basket. Cook the breast until it reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF. I suggest an instant-read thermometer to check the temperature. You don't want to serve raw turkey!

If you don't want to marinate the turkey, I suggest brining the turkey. Here is our favorite turkey brine: https://www.plainchicken.com/2013/11/brined-thanksgiving-turkey.html

I used the Philips XXL Air Fryer and was able to fit a 4.5-pound whole turkey breast in the basket.

How Many Minutes to Cook a Bone-In Turkey Breast Per Pound?

To reach a safe internal temperature of 165ºF, you want to cook your turkey breast about 12 to 13 minutes per pound. So, if you have a 4-pound bone-in turkey breast you will cook the turkey breast for about 50 to 55 minutes.
