  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 (1 1/2- to 2-pound) boneless, skin-on turkey breast

  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced garlic


  1. Line bottom of air fryer basket with foil; preheat to 350°F for 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, stir oil, rosemary, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Pat turkey breast dry using paper towels; gently loosen the skin by running your fingers between it and the meat. Rub the oil mixture on both sides and under the skin. Arrange garlic slices evenly under the skin.

  3. Place the turkey breast, skin-side down, in the prepared basket; cook for 20 minutes. Flip skin-side up; cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted near the center registers 165°F, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and loosely cover with foil; let rest for 10 minutes. Slice into 1/2-inch-thick slices and serve warm.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
