Air fryer crispy parmesan chicken is such an easy and delicious weeknight dinner recipe!
Basically you combine a few simple ingredients to make a garlic parmesan sauce.
Then top with panko bread crumbs for that gorgeous golden brown color and crunch.
The air fryer will take over from there and have your kitchen smelling heavenly within a matter of minutes.
How to make air fryer crispy parmesan chicken
Start with four thin cut chicken breasts.
If you do not have thin cut chicken, simply cut two regular sized chicken breasts in half to create four thinner pieces.
And for the sauce that goes over top start with 1/2 cup of Mayo and 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese in a bowl.
Add some garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, kosher salt, and pepper.
Then spread this mixture evenly over top of each chicken breast.
Top each with some panko bread crumbs and place them in the air fryer basket.
I recommend pressing the panko into the garlic parmesan sauce.
Set your air fryer to 400 degrees for about 12 to 14 minutes or until the internal temperature is above 165 degrees.
