This air fryer turkey boneless breast recipe is a healthy way to enjoy the best turkey dinner! The recipe is gluten free and easy to make. You can have a large boneless turkey breast on the table for dinner fast.
If you don't have an air fryer yet, you need to get one. I was super resistant to getting another kitchen appliance, but I use my air fryer all of the time. Literally, at least four nights a week.
Whether I'm making meats or cooking frozen vegetables (in 9 minutes!!) my air fryer has found a permanent home on my countertop. I have used mine so much that I will be looking for another on Black Friday.
Can you air fry turkey?
Yes! I love to air fry the boneless turkey breasts from Costco. I'm sure you can get boneless turkey breasts anywhere, but Costco is the best price I've found. I rub the turkey breast with butter and then pour half the brine over it. I air fry one side and then do the same for the other. It is delicious!

How do you air fry turkey?
I take the boneless turkey breast out of the packaging and pat dry with a paper towel. I place the turkey breast into the air fryer basket. Then I rub the turkey breast with softened butter and pour half of my glaze over top.
I air fry the turkey breast and then take out of the air fryer immediately. Let stand on your cutting board for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting so the juices can settle. This is my new favorite way to enjoy turkey breast!

How long should I air fry a turkey?
Ultimately you need to make sure the center or largest part of the turkey reaches 165 degrees. Ensuring that your turkey is fully cooked is the most important part. For a three pound boneless, skinless turkey breast I cooked one side for 20 minutes at 350 degrees and then flipped to cook the other side for 15 minutes more. I used a digital meat thermometer to make sure the turkey had reached 165 degrees in the center of the meatiest part.
If I've purchased a smaller turkey breast or turkey tenderloin I lesson the cooking time by 5-7 minutes and check the temperature to make sure it is 165 or above in the thickest part of the meat. Turkey tenderloins are usually available year round at my grocery store.

Air Fryer Turkey Breast
- Total Time: 45 minutes
- Yield: 1 Boneless, Skinless Turkey Breast 1x
- Diet: Gluten Free
This air fryer turkey boneless breast recipe is a healthy way to enjoy the best turkey dinner! The recipe is gluten free and easy to make.
2 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
¼ cup Maple Syrup
2 Tbsp. Honey
1 Tbsp. Stone Ground Mustard
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
½ tsp. Dried Ground Thyme
½ tsp. Chili Powder
½ tsp. Smoked Paprika
½ tsp. Sea Salt
½ tsp. Coarse Ground Black Pepper
2-3 pound Boneless, Skinless Turkey Breast
Place the thawed boneless, skinless turkey breast(s) in the basket of your air fryer. Rub with 1 tablespoon of the room temperature butter.
In a small bowl or 1-cup measuring cup mix together the maple syrup, honey, stone ground mustard, onion powder, garlic powder, dried thyme, chili powder, smoked paprika, sea salt and black pepper.
Pour half of this glaze mixture over the turkey.
Cook the turkey at 350 degrees for 12-20 minutes.
Carefully flip over the turkey breast(s). Rub with butter and then pour the rest of the glaze on the turkey breast.
Cook at 350 degrees for another 8-15 minutes or until the inside temperature of the turkey breast reaches 165 degrees.
Immediately take the turkey breast out of the air fryer and let rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes.
Slice and serve.
The Costco Skinless, Boneless Turkey Breasts are my favorite. This turkey breast is delicious served with cranberry sauce and green beans. I roast frozen green beans in the air fryer at 380 degrees fo 9 minutes while the turkey breast is resting on the cutting board.
However, the turkey breast at Costco isn't available year round. I buy turkey tenderloin at the grocery store. They are usually 1.5 pounds, so I cook 2-3 of the tenderloins for dinner. You will need to use the lower cooking times shown above for these smaller turkey tenderloins.

Looks great. Is this fresh or frozen turkey breast?
Hi Teri! This is a fresh turkey breast from Costco. If you are going to purchase a frozen turkey breast it will need to be completely thawed for this cooking time to work. Hope that helps! ~Elaine
Great. Thank you.
Yum! A great way to cook turkey. Looks so good and easy to do.
Thanks Michelle! It's the easiest way to cook a turkey and I love that my oven is still open for other dishes. Enjoy! ~Elaine
