This recipe is perfect for busy weeknights! The chicken is infused with bright lemon and fresh herbs, while the asparagus roasts to tender-crisp perfection. This easy air fryer recipe is a complete and flavorful meal that is low-carb and Paleo-friendly.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a bowl, toss the chicken breasts with olive oil, lemon zest, thyme, rosemary, garlic powder, and black pepper. Season with salt to taste.
  3. Arrange the chicken breasts in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Scatter the asparagus spears around the chicken.
  4. If using, place lemon slices on top of the chicken.
  5. Air fry for 15-20 minutes, flipping the chicken halfway through cooking, or until the chicken is cooked through and the asparagus is tender-crisp.
  6. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce, if desired.
  7. Tips:
  8. For thicker chicken breasts, you may need to increase the cooking time by 5-7 minutes.
  9. To check for doneness, insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken breast. The internal temperature should reach 165°F (74°C).
  10. You can substitute other herbs for the thyme and rosemary, such as oregano, basil, or parsley.
  11. If your air fryer doesn't have a large enough basket to fit all of the chicken and asparagus in a single layer, you can cook them in batches.
