  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 pound russet potatoes (about 2 medium potatoes)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


1. Prep the Potatoes:

  • Wash and cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes.
  • In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.

2. Cook the Potatoes:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  • Place the seasoned potatoes in a single layer in the air fryer basket.
  • Air fry for 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through.

3. Prep the Chicken:

  • While the potatoes are cooking, pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towels.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon paprika, 1/2 teaspoon thyme, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Coat the chicken breasts in the seasoning mixture.

4. Cook the Chicken:

  • After 10 minutes, remove the basket from the air fryer and carefully push the potatoes to one side.
  • Place the chicken breasts on the other side of the basket.
  • Air fry for an additional 10-12 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).

5. Rest and Serve:

Transfer the chicken and potatoes to a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes before serving.


  • You can use different seasonings to flavor your chicken and potatoes. Some popular options include Italian seasoning, Cajun seasoning, or chili powder.
  • If your air fryer has a small basket, you may need to cook the chicken and potatoes in batches.
  • For thicker chicken breasts, you may need to increase the cooking time by a few minutes.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken for perfect doneness.
