Air Fryer Turkey Breast

When we had friends over last weekend, I had a nice Fall Cocktail to offer, and was experimenting with the very tasty Italian Beef Stuffing.

What could be left, but a turkey?

But, since this wasn’t actually a holidaze dinner, I decided to go easy and make a couple of boneless turkey breasts in the air fryer. I had made one, bone-in, last year, and it was really good, but so many recipes I came across called for boneless, so…

•1 tsp Kosher salt
•1 tsp rosemary
•1 tsp Italian seasoning
•1 tsp dried parsley
•1/2 tsp dried thyme
•1/2 tsp black pepper
•1/2 tsp Aleppo pepper
•1/2 tsp garlic powder
•1/2 tsp paprika
•1/2 tsp smoked brown sugar

Turkey Breast:
•2 (3 lb or so) boneless turkey breasts
•Olive oil
•Cooking spray

Combine the seasoning ingredients together in a small bowl, apply cooking spray to your air fryer basket, and pre-heat your air fryer to 360º.

Remove your turkey breasts from the packaging, but go a head and keep the twine wrapping each breast in place.

Rub all sides of each breast with some olive oil, and then rub with the seasoning blend.

Position in the air fryer and cook for one hour, turning the breasts every 15 minutes, until a thermometer inserted in the center reads 165º.

Remove from the air fryer, cover loosely with foil, and set aside to rest for ten minutes before removing the twine, slicing, and serving.

The outsides of the breasts will look a bit crusty, but that’s OK; the meat inside will be moist and flavorful.

Ours was lovely with that Italian beef stuffing, rolls made by a friend, cranberry sauce, and Air Fryer Bussels Sprouts Salad.

Why wait for Thanksgiving?
