Air Fryer Chicken For Tacos:

Taco Food Bar:


  • Place in a zip loc bag your chicken breasts, olive oil and taco seasoning. Shake well until it is well mixed. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to marinate.
  • Remove the chicken from the bag, place it onto your baking dish and add a little taco seasoning on top. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the chicken breasts onto the medium shelf of your air fryer oven and cook for 25 minutes at 180c/360f.
  • Slice the chicken and serve with a taco bar or inside your favourite tacos.


You can cook the chicken without the olive oil, but it will be drier compared to just adding a little olive oil between your chicken breasts.
Our chicken breasts were large. If using smaller chicken breasts or butterflied chicken, you can reduce the time by 4 minutes.
We used the drip pan tray that comes with our air fryer oven, you can also use the air fryer grill pan in a classic air fryer.
This air fryer chicken for tacos recipe can also be used with a taco dinner kit such as Olde El Paso.
Because the taco bar ingredients are an optional extra, we have not included them in the nutritional info.
