The question I'm asked most frequently when I tell people I cook chicken breasts in the Air Fryer is, “but are they dry?” — and the answer is no, they're actually moist! You can mix it up with different seasonings to keep it interesting! Chicken breast is one of the 200+ zero point foods on the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan, so of course, it's a staple in my home.

If you don't have an air fryer yet, check out this post to see which one will fit you best! I highly recommend either of the ones below!

Breville BOV900BSS Convection and Air Fry Smart Oven Air, Brushed Stainless Steel

I'll be honest, chicken in the air fryer isn't the fall-apart kind you get from the Instant Pot, but it's still perfect for salad, sandwiches, or even eating plain. I like to make chicken salad with mine, with some mustard, cayenne pepper, and pickles. It's an easy 0 point lunch or dinner that is filling, flavorful, and high in protein – plus, it's easy to make!

Weight Watchers is such a simple way of life, it's amazing to see the transformations women and men of all ages make by following such a delicious “diet”. You won't fall off the wagon with Weight Watchers as easily as you may have with other diets because you can eat pretty much anything you want, within moderation. So you don't have to restrict all your carbs, or avoid fruit (I'd NEVER follow a diet that forbids fruit), etc… you literally eat what you want and make sure it fits within your point allotment for the day. There are even low point desserts!
