Can you put raw chicken in an air fryer?

Yes Absolutely; I cook my boneless, skinless chicken breasts for 10 minutes at 380°F before flipping and cooking for another 5-6 minutes, or until the internal temperature hits 165°F.

Does the air fryer make chicken dry?

If your air fryer chicken is too dry, you most likely overcook it. Check for doneness with a cheap rapid-read thermometer. At 165 degrees F, chicken is considered done.

Pro Tip: In my experience, when using skinless and/or boneless beef, this may get quite dry. The skin works as a barrier, keeping some moisture in the meat. It is also true that meat with a bone running through it helps the flesh retain moisture. When you remove that, the air fryer produces extremely dry and tough meat! If there is no oil or fat on the surface of other foods than meat, you will end up with something very dry!
