2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon cumin

2 (12 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
In a mixing bowl, combine paprika, thyme, cumin, cayenne pepper, onion powder, black pepper, and salt together. Then, move the mixture into a flat plate.
Massage oil using hand into each chicken breast until fully coated. Then, soak each piece of chicken breast in blackening spice mixture, make sure to force and squeeze it down so spice sticks on all sides. Let it sit for 5 minutes then, set a side while preheating the air fryer.
