  • Preheat the air fryer to 180c.
  • Set up your work station. Place a large sheet of silver foil on the work top and add to it all the seasonings and the lemon rind.
  • Lay out your chicken breasts onto a chopping board and trim off any fatty bits or any little bones that are still there. Then season each side with salt and pepper. Rub the chicken seasoning into both sides so that it is slightly a different colour.
  • Place it in the silver foil sheet and rub it well so that it is fully seasoned.
  • Then seal it up very tight so that it cant breathe as this will help get the flavour into it.
  • Then give it a slap with a rolling pin so that it will flatten it out and release more flavour.
  • Place it in the air fryer for 15 minutes and check to see if it is fully cooked in the middle before serving.
  • Serve.


I have based the recipe upon one breast just because you can then adjust your ingredients for the more mouths you are going to feed.
For each extra breast you are cooking (in separate silver foil packets) add an additional 1 minute to the cooking time.
For chicken seasoning we get it from Spain but a nice chicken stock cube with some extra parsley can have a similar taste.
We have found the best place to source chicken breasts to make Whole30 Lemon Pepper Chicken In The Air Fryer is from ButcherBox. You even receive free bacon and $10 off your first order when you sign up with this link.
