Place your chicken breasts (I usually do 3 at a time in the air fryer) in a shallow dish. Spread the marinade all over, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 3 hours at least (up to 10).

When you’re ready to cook, preheat your air fryer to 400. Then, spray the basket with cooking spray. Place the chicken into the basket and cook at 400 for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes, flip the chicken and cook an additional 10 minutes. Then, let sit in the air fryer and rest for 5.
