Air Fryer chicken is best, coming out moist and tender, then adding garlic lemon butter over chicken breast brings it over the top. Set the air fryer at highest temperature 350°F, let that hot circulating air seal flavors into the chicken. The cooking time ranges between 16 to 28 minutes depending on size of chicken breasts. Enjoy this most flavorful chicken, oh it’s so good.
Marinating Garlic Lemon Chicken Breasts:
Marinating chicken breasts improves the flavor all the way through chicken. The marinate adds some extra moisture and infuses garlic lemon flavor throughout the whole chicken breast. Tenderizing chicken breast with special meat tenderizer cuts small deep cuts into chicken. The marinate will infuse better into the chicken breast trough small cuts.
Quick simple marinate uses lemon juice, garlic, oil, lemon pepper seasoning. Place tenderized chicken breasts into zip lock bag with marinate, squeeze out extra air from bag seal and refrigerate for 20 to 45 minutes.
