This recipe will show you how to cook chicken breast with a delicious crispy coating. This recipe makes enough coating for 4 chicken breasts. (if you only have 2, make half or save half in the freezer for later)
First, even out the chicken breasts using a meat tenderizer, or the slide of a rolling pin. This will help the chicken to cook more evenly. (this part is optional, but can help prevent overcooked chicken)
In a large bowl, mix together parmesan cheese, panko crumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, paprika, salt and pepper.
Beat the eggs in a separate bowl. Add one chicken breast and coat evenly on each side.
Take the chicken and dip into the panko crumb mixture.
Preheat the air fryer for 2 minutes at 375°F. Add in the chicken breasts in a single layer. Cook for 12 minutes then flip them with a fork.
Cook an additional 12-15 minutes depending on the size and quantity of chicken breasts. Check for doneness by slicing one open to see the inside - chicken will no longer be pink and juices run clear.
The exact time for cooking will depend on the size of the chicken and your air fryer.
The chicken will be done when the inside is no longer pink and juices run clear. The internal temperature should reach 165°F with a meat thermometer.
