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
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
2 Tbsp. Honey
1 Tbsp. Stone Ground Mustard
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Dried Ground Thyme
1/2 tsp. Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Smoked Paprika
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 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
