  • 3 breaded fried chicken breasts


  • Preheat Air Fryer to 375F / 190C.
  • Place chicken inside the air fryer basket, leaving space between each piece.
  • Cook for about 4 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through.
  • Check the internal temperature with a meat thermometer to ensure it has reached 165F / 74C. Then serve and enjoy!


  • Let the chicken come to room temperature for about 30 minutes for maximum crunch and to ensure that the chicken will be heated all the way through.
  • Cook similar sized pieces together. If you reheat a breast and a wing together, you will end up with an overcooked wing and a breast that may still be cold in the middle. 
  • While you are reheating the chicken, keep a close watch on it. 4 minutes is an average cooking time, but you may need more or less depending on the size of your chicken pieces. 
  • Don’t overcrowd the basket. Leave space between the pieces of chicken so the hot air can circulate. 
  • If your chicken looks a little dry, spritz it with water before placing it in the air fryer.
  • There are 8 Blue Plan SmartPoints in one serving of this.
