As Thanksgiving approaches, families are already making plans for the perfect holiday feast to enjoy with loved ones. However, preparing a large meal for dozens of guests can be stressful, and toiling away for hours to feed only two to four people can be equally as daunting. The solution? Try cooking a turkey breast in the air fryer.

Turkey Breast in the Air Fryer

While 15-20 pound turkey won’t fit in even a large-capacity air fryer, a small 2-4 pound turkey breast will. A turkey breast provides the perfect solution for our Thanksgiving woes. If the largest turkey in the store still won’t feed your whole dinner party, but your party isn’t large enough to justify the time and expense of cooking another whole turkey, why not consider air frying a turkey breast? In addition, if you don’t live close to your family or have only a small circle of friends, opt for a cozy and delicious Thanksgiving meal by cooking a turkey breast in the air fryer?

Fast, Efficient, and Delicious

A 2-5 pound turkey is fast and efficient. While your large turkey is cooking, simply pop the small breast in the air fryer and cook while your large bird is finishing up, or, if you aren’t cooking for a large party and choose to skip the leftovers, air frying a turkey breast provides the perfect solution to your intimate Thanksgiving gathering. At a temperature of 350 or 360, a small turkey breast will be ready in around 45-50 minutes.

The Perfect Finish

Let your air fryer provide the perfect turkey this Thanksgiving. Thanks to your air fryer’s rapid air technology, the turkey breast will cook quickly and evenly, crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, juicy turkey breast that will make your oven seem hum-drum. Pair your turkey with all your holiday favorites, like mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, dressing, and gravy for a perfect holiday feast.
