From now on this is the only way I can justify cooking chicken breasts. The meat was tender and juicy, which is rare for cooking breast. Straightforward, easy to follow recipe perfect for air fryer newbies.

Garlic, onion, salt, and pepper are all you need for this recipe. Cooks this chicken perfectly on the inside and out. I made a few breasts, cut them up and pack them for my meal prep throughout the week. Winning!
