How to Reheat Chicken Breast in Air Fryer Without Drying It Out
The best way to avoid drying out the chicken is to slice it first, so it cooks quicker. Then add a little bit of oil before air frying. Make sure you don't air fry it too long - you want it to be thoroughly heated to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C), but not more than that.
If you're reheating thin chicken breasts you don't need to slice them first.
