Quick, simple and oh-so-tasty, this air-fried Chicken Parmesan is the perfect weeknight dish to have on hand. It’s just as crispy as the classic, if not crispier!



  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 oz. each)
  • 1 cup pasta sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Optional: Chopped fresh basil and hot cooked pasta

1. Preheat air fryer to 375°. In a shallow bowl, lightly beat eggs. In another shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan and pepper. Dip chicken in egg, then coat with crumb mixture.

2. Place chicken in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until a thermometer reads 165°, 10-12 minutes, turning halfway through. Top chicken with sauce and cheese. Cook until cheese is melted, 3-4 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with chopped basil and additional Parmesan cheese and serve with pasta.
