Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan
Air fryer Chicken Parmesan is the perfect crunchy chicken recipe without any oil or frying.
- Serves: 4 persons
- 2chicken breasts
- 1 ½cups panko breadcrumbs
- 1teaspoon Italian seasoning
- ½cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
- 1teaspoon salt
- ½teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1large egg
- ¼cup milik
- ⅓cup flour
- 1cup marinara sauce
- ½cup fresh mozzarella cheese
Step 1Gather your ingredients. Preheat the oven to 375 F and the air fryer to 370 F.
Step 2Butterfly each chicken breast in half, then cut so you have a total of 4 cutlets. Pound out the chicken breasts to 1/4-inch thickness. You can go thinner, if you wish. Place the chicken breast in a plastic bag while you are pounding to prevent a mess.
Step 3Add the breadcrumbs to a baking sheet, shaking to spread into one even layer. Toast in the oven until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer the breadcrumbs to a shallow bowl, then stir in the Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.
Step 4Divide the salt and pepper amongst 2 separate shallow bowls. Combine the egg and milk in one bowl and beat to combine.
Step 5Add the flour to the remaining bowl and stir to combine with the salt and pepper.
Step 6Dip the pounded chicken breast into the flour mixture, flipping to coat both sides.
Step 7Add the floured chicken to the egg mixture. Coat both sides so there are no flour bits showing.
Step 8Add the chicken to the breadcrumb mixture and coat both sides with the breadcrumbs, pressing to help the breadcrumb fully adhere to the chicken. Repeat with the remaining 3 chicken breasts.
Step 9Add two of the chicken breasts to the basket of the air fryer (if you can fit more in yours, while keeping them in one even layer, do so).
Step 10Air fry the chicken for 12 minutes at 370 F or until the outside is crispy and the internal temperature is 165 F. There is no need to flip the chicken. Keep the chicken breasts hot in the oven while you repeat with the remaining 2 breasts.
Step 11Top each breast with a few spoonfuls of marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Step 12Air fry at 370 F for an additional 3 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Repeat with the remaining breasts. Serve immediately.
