1 ½tablespoonCourse Ground Black Pepper
¼CupWhite Wine Optional- See Note
2-3Tbsp.Lemon Pepper Seasoningstore bought or homemade.
In a large bowl, add the lemon juice, chicken broth OR white wine, garlic and onion powder, salt, pepper and thyme. Add olive oil and mix.
Place the chicken breasts into the bowl and place in refrigerator. Allow allow to marinade at least 1 hour, but up to 2-3 hours. DO NOT leave more than 4 hours, or the lemon can toughen the chicken.
When ready to go, remove the chicken from the marinade and sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning.
Cook in your air fryer, at 360 degrees F for 9 minutes. Open air fryer and flip the chicken breast over and cook for another 9 minutes. Larger chicken breasts will need more cook time, and smaller ones may need less time.
When done, open air fryer, and check chicken with a thermometer. Chicken should be cooked to 160 degrees F. If ready, allow to cool slightly (about five minutes) in the fryer basket, and serve!
