[Keto Recipes] Air Fryer Turkey Breast

A friend recently asked if you can make turkey breast in the air fryer, so of course I ran out to the store, and looked for a small enough breast that would fit in the basket. It wasn’t hard to find, this was made with a 4 pound bone-in breast which was pretty average in size.


  • Depending on the size of your air fryer, a 4 to 5-pound breast should fit fine in a 5 quart or larger air fryer. Just be sure the height of the meat is below the top of the basket before you start.
  • Time will vary depending on the size of your breast, to be sure it’s cooked perfectly I recommend using an instant-read thermometer to test the internal temperature.
  • If your breast is frozen, thaw it overnight in the refrigerator.


  • Allow the cooked breast to rest on a carving board for at least 15 minutes under foil loosely tented to allow the juices to redistribute.
  • With a large sharp knife, run the knife along the side of the breast bone using long even strokes.  If you are using a serrated knife use a sawing motion.
  • Follow the bone all the way toward the bottom of the board.
  • Bring your knife around to the front and connect where you started carving at the top of the breast bone.
  • Cut down the ribs. Follow it around and down to the bottom to connect to the bottom of the first breast bone cut.
  • Pull the meat away from the bone and slice. Repeat the same on the other
