Balsamic Air Fry Bone-In Chicken Breast Recipe

One of the simplest bone-in chicken breast recipes I've ever made! This air fry bone-in chicken breast is smothered and cooked in a delicious honey balsamic marinade that perfectly balances sweet and savory. Incredibly flavorful and juicy, these tender chicken breasts will make any weeknight dinner feel special!

  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 2 chicken breasts 1x



2 bone-in chicken breasts

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon grapeseed oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Prepare the marinade: In a large bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, honey, soy sauce, grapeseed oil, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes. Add the bone-in chicken breasts.
  2. Bone-in chicken breast: Cut diagonal slits in the middle. Add the bone-in chicken breast in the large bowl.  


Garnish with chopped parsley. 

Bonus Tip: Letting the cooked chicken breast rest for a few minutes before serving allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a juicier and more flavorful chicken.
