Air Fryer Teriyaki Chicken Breasts


When meal prepping for the week, you’ve got to try these Air Fryer Teriyaki Chicken Breasts that can be sliced and served on a salad or with any other side dish you like. This easy and healthy recipe only has two ingredients!


Units Scale
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 large pieces)
  • 1/4 cup prepared teriyaki sauce


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the chicken breasts and teriyaki sauce. Use tongs to move the chicken breasts around so they get fully coated on all sides with the sauce.
  2. Spray the basket of your air fryer lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F for several minutes.
  4. Then, use your tongs to lay the chicken breasts in the basket of your air fryer.
  5. Set the timer to 8 minutes. Then, flip the chicken breasts and cook them for another 8 minutes, or until they have started to turn a golden brown.
  6. Turn off the air fryer and let the chicken rest for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving.


  1. If you want to ensure that your chicken is cooked through, you can always test them with an instant read thermometer that should read a minimum of 165 degrees F.
  2. When buying a bottle of teriyaki sauce, read the label to be sure that it is gluten-free, if necessary.
  3. Store any leftover cooked chicken in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat before serving.
