  • 2 TBSP chopped fresh dill, plus extra for garnish
  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper

Instructions

  1. Put the mustard, fresh dill, smashed garlic cloves, salt, pepper, and the lemon zest and juice into a large mixing bowl. Whisk everything well with a fork.

  3. Hit the chicken repeatedly with a meat tenderizer to tenderize and flatten, creating cutlets.
  4. Transfer the chicken breasts into the mustard sauce, dredging each one to coat, then place the bowl into the fridge for about an hour.
  5. . After an hour, take the chicken breasts out from the fridge and use tongs to place them into the air fryer basket. Spoon some of the mustard sauce over them; set the bowl with remaining sauce aside
  6.    .Cook the chicken breasts at 360º F for five minutes. Open the air fryer, flip the chicken breasts with tongs, and spoon the remainder the the sauce over them. Cook for another four minutes, or until the internal temperature registers at 160-165º F.
  7.  Remove the chicken breasts from the air fryer and place them onto a serving platter to rest for about five minutes.
  8. Garnish with a bit of extra fresh dill and serve with lemon wedges.                                                                                                                                                                          serving: 1serving, calories: 243kcal, carbohydrates: 2g, protein: 37g, fat: 9g, saturated fat: 1g, polyunsaturated fat: 1g, cholesterol: 98mg, sodium: 788mg, fiber: 1g
