Air Fried Chicken Parmesan

I try to cook as much I can in an air fryer to avoid the extra fat of pan frying. This Chicken Parmesan recipe comes out as good, or better than pan frying. Add to your favorite pasta and sauce for a delicious, lower calorie, version of an Italian Classic 🇮🇹 🍝

It’s as simple as cutting the chicken breast in half to make 2 thinner breasts.


Dredge the chicken in egg and seasoned panko breadcrumbs. Then put in your air fryer basket.

Cook chicken until almost done. Top with sauce and cheese and continue cooking for 3 minutes. There is a link to a great sauce recipe below.


Place the chicken on top of your favorite pasta and sauce to complete this fabulous classic!
