Air Fryer Caprese Chicken is made with chicken breast, mozzarella cheese, and tomatoes. This is a healthy family dinner, that is prepared in less than 30 minutes.
I love cooking in my Air Fryer because it is quick, healthy, and delicious. Some of my favorite dishes cooked in it are Meatballs, Hasselback Potatoes, and Rib eye Steak.
Making this classic Caprese Chicken dish in the Air Fryer has a few advantages. Firstly, the poultry is cooked to perfection, with a crunchy outside and tender inside, in less than twenty -20- minutes.
Also, it has fresh and bold tastes yet, it is very easy to make. The air fryer is a delicious way to make pretty much any meal. The chicken cooks quickly in the AF and is then topped with fresh mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, and basil.
The fresh cheese here works the best, particularly when topped with basil. The aromas and flavors are simply outstanding. However, if you cannot find it fresh, use the regular store-bought version.
When cooked together, the cheese on top starts to melt, making a gooey and juicy meal. I like to drizzle some balsamic vinegar on top, but you can just use some virgin olive oil or simply squeeze fresh lemon. This is a classic and healthy summer dish, full of flavors and proteins, that can be enjoyed at the pool with friends and family.
