Happy Friday! Where are my air fryer fans? You know who you are! I’m back today to share a recipe for Air Fryer Parmesan Chicken. This really is one of our family’s favorite meals and it’s literally FOUR ingredients!
That’s it? Yep, that’s it. This is my go-to when I’ve taken chicken tenderloins out of the freezer. I use tenderloins rather than chicken breasts because I find that they cook a bit quicker. If I can save time preparing dinner, I’m in! You, too? I thought so. This air fryer parmesan chicken is ready in under 15 minutes!
All you need to do is get out two pans. In one will be a mixture of the Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. In the other, you’ll put your beaten eggs. My egg container is actually a loaf pan, and it works great.
After you dredge your chicken breasts in the egg and then the breadcrumb mixture, you place them right into the basket of the air fryer.
And voila! You have delicious crispy-on-the-outside and moist-on-the-inside chicken. Perfection. I usually whip up some of these brussels sprouts in the air fryer, too, to serve alongside the chicken.
Now who’s ready to dig in?

This turned out so great. I did have to use Panko breadcrumbs, but it was still delicous!
