Air Fryer Turkey Breast with Herb Butter

Posted on
It’s amazing how easy it is to make a beautiful roast turkey breast in your air fryer. Honestly – I’m amazed every time. You’d think that it would get too brown or burn on top, being so close to the element, but it doesn’t. Instead, it turns a gorgeous brown and only needs to be flipped over a couple of times – ending with the turkey skin side up is key for crispy skin.
