Monday Meals: Air Fryer Chicken

Hello and Happy Monday! It’s been a minute since I’ve shared a meal, and I don’t want to brag, but I’m getting the hang of my Air Fryer, y’all!

A couple of weeks ago, it was just me for dinner, so I decided to try chicken in my Air Fryer. I just did a spin on my Baked Chicken recipe and used the Air Fryer. I loved it so much that I made it again for the family using chicken tenders.

Ingredients:

  • Chicken
  • 2-3 eggs
  • Splash of milk (not pictured)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Panko bread crumbs
  • Italian bread crumbs
  • Grated Parm

*I like to use Italian bread crumbs for flavor, Parm for saltiness, and Panko bread crumbs for crunch.

Instructions:

  • Using two dishes, put eggs, splash of milk, salt and pepper in one, and bread crumbs, Panko, and a couple of small handfuls of grated parm in the other.
  • Dip the chicken in the egg wash and then the bread crumbs and place in your Air Fryer.

The automatic Air Fryer setting for chicken is 380 for 25 minutes. That is what I did with the chicken breasts the first time I made it, flipping halfway through. For this recipe, since I was using chicken tenders 15 minutes at 380 degrees (flipping once midway through) was enough to cook them just right.

  • Enjoy!

We had our dinner with bagged Caesar salad and Bob Evans mashed potoatoes.

The Air Fryer and dinner hacks like bagged salad and microwave mashed potatoes provided us with a healthy and hearty meal in less than 20 minutes!

Now that it’s springtime, next time, I’m going to serve this Air Fryer chicken with one of my favorite side dishes!

What have you made in the Air Fryer recently? I’d love more ideas!

I hope you have a great week,

  1. I have been looking at air fryers. I don’t have a spot for it in my kitchen so I am thinking about an air fryer/toaster oven combo. I want to be sure to get one big enough to cook for all 4 of us and not have to do it in batches. Your chicken sounds delicious!
