Recipe: Air Fryer Parmesan Crusted Chicken


This happens to be my favorite way of cooking chicken now. I've said it once and I will say it again, if you don't have an air fryer, you need to get one. I can make perfectly cooked, delicious chicken in 15 minutes. Simple as that. No mess with frying oil and half the clean up.

Pair the chicken with rice, pasta, salad, mashed potatoes or your favorite side dish. Its really a versatile protein that can be used in many different ways. You can even change up the seasoning for a whole different taste with the same time in the air fryer. Simple as that. 

Save this recipe for later, you are going to need it.

Course: Main Course

Servings: 4 people

Time to Make: 20 minutes


4 Chicken breasts
1 Cup of flour (Or gluten free flour)
1 Cup of bread crumbs (Or corn flakes, crushed)
1/2 Cup coarsely grated parmesan
2 eggs
Salt and pepper


1. You will need three shallow bowls. In bowl #1 pour your flour. Bowl #2 is for your eggs, make sure they are beaten and mixed up well. In bowl #3, mix your bread crumbs, parmesan and salt and pepper to taste. place the bowls aside.

2. Flatten chicken breast with a mallet to about a 1/4 of an inch.

3. Dredge chicken in the flour, fully covering it, then dredge in the egg mixture, before dredging in the bread crumb mixture. Each dredging should fully cover the chicken breast before moving on to the next.

4. place breaded chicken breast in the air fryer trying not to overlay the chicken so they cook evenly. You might need to make 2 batches if the chicken breasts are larger.

5. Cook chicken on 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

6. Serve right away with your favorite side dish.
