    We really liked this – thanks for posting. It took quite a bit longer in my air fryer, but that could just be my air fryer. I don’t think I’ll use parchment next time – we didn’t like how soggy it made the bottom. Think I’ll try spraying cooking spray liberally – even if it sticks – it will be better than a soggy bottom . This helped me learn the basics of air frying chicken breast and now I can tweak a bit . Thanks very much
