Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • ½ tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tsp garlic granules
  • 1 tsp smoked sweet paprika
  • 2 tsp mixed herbs
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • steamed rice and greens such as broccoli or green beans or a green salad, to serve (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Coat the chicken in the oil and set aside. In a bowl, combine the salt, garlic, paprika and mixed herbs with a good grinding of black pepper, then scatter onto a plate.

  • STEP 2

    Roll each oiled chicken breast in the seasoning and put in your air fryer basket. Cook at 180C for 18-20 mins, turning after 10 mins. To check it is cooked, pierce the chicken with a knife at the thickest part to see if the juices run clear. Or insert a temperature thermometer and it should read 70C. Serve with rice and greens or a salad.
