- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Zest of 1 lemon
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
Marinate the Chicken:
- In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, ensuring they are well coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or up to 4 hours) to allow the flavors to meld.
Preheat the Air Fryer:
- Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.
Air Fry the Chicken:
- Remove the chicken from the marinade and let any excess marinade drip off. Place the chicken breasts in the EaZy MealZ Non-Stick Crisper Basket in a single layer. Air-fry the chicken for about 18-20 minutes, flipping them halfway through, until they are cooked through and reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
Rest and Serve:
- Once cooked, transfer the lemon herb chicken to a plate and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a burst of color and added freshness.
- Savor the succulent Lemon Herb Chicken that's been marinated to perfection, its tender and flavorful interior complemented by the zesty essence of lemon and fragrant herbs.
This Lemon Herb Chicken offers a delightful medley of flavors that's both vibrant and comforting, perfect for a wholesome meal that's easy to prepare using your air fryer.
