      Step 1

        In a small bowl, whisk the apricot preserves, ginger paste, and rosemary until well combined—Microwave the preserves for around 20 seconds to spread easier.

          Step 2

            Flatten chicken breasts with a meat mallet, and wipe them with a paper towel to remove excess moisture. It would be best if you rubbed salt and pepper seasoned with oil on it.

              Step 3

                Activate the air fryer and set the temperature to 400 degrees F. (200 degrees C). Grease the basket and then place the chicken breasts flat inside.

                  Step 4

                    Cook for 4 minutes in the air fryer. The chicken breasts should be flipped and rotated around. Apply a layer of the apricot mixture on the surface. Place the basket back in the air fryer and heat till the meat is no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, which should take 8 to 12 minutes. Insert an instant-read thermometer into the centre of the roast, and wait for it to register a temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees C).

                      Step 5

                        Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes on a platter covered with aluminium foil. Serve sliced chicken breast.

                              Instead of fresh rosemary, you can substitute 1/8 teaspoon dried rosemary.

                                Ginger paste is available in tubes in the fresh vegetable area of your local grocery store.
