Ingredients

  • 1 unseasoned boneless turkey breast (about 3-4 lbs.) See Note 1
  • 2 tbsp Land O Lakes® Butter, softened or 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp sea salt or kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp McCormick® Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp McCormick® Ground Thyme
  • 1 tsp McCormick® Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp McCormick® Whole Rosemary Leaves

Instructions

  • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F. If your air fryer doesn't have a preheat setting, just set it to 350°F and give it about 5 minutes to come up to temperature.
  • Pat turkey breast dry with paper towel, set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine: softened butter (or olive oil), salt, pepper, thyme, garlic powder and rosemary.
  • Rub turkey breast with butter/olive oil--use your hands! Then generously rub spices all over the turkey. Use your hands and get into all the nooks and crannies!
  • Air-fry turkey breast for 15 minutes one side (if using a skin-on breast, do skin side UP first).
  • After 15 minutes, flip and cook 15-20 minutes more until an instant read thermometer reaches 160°F (See Note 2).
  • Let the turkey rest for 5-10 minutes then cut into slices and serve!

Notes

Note 1: Pre-seasoned turkey breasts are all the rage right now, but do your best to look for an UNSEASONED turkey breast. The pre-seasoned ones are way too salty in my opinion and we'll be adding our own amazing spice blend! 
Note 2: If you are using a larger or smaller turkey breast, adjust time up or down accordingly. Just be sure your instant read thermometer reads at least 160°F.
