Magically Moist Breaded Chicken Breasts


Air Fryer Breaded Chicken Breasts (Magically Moist!)

Ingredients

1-2 lb chicken breasts, we used chicken breasts that were 7-8 oz each

1/4 C. mayonnaise (high quality!- Best Foods, Hellmann’s, Dukes, or homemade)

1/2 C. Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

1/4 C. grated parmesan cheese

Directions

1. Remove the boneless skinless chicken breasts from the fridge 15-30 minutes before cooking, if you’re able to. Bringing meat up to room temperature for a safe amount of time helps cook the dish evenly and 

Preheat the air fryer to 360F for 3-5 minutes.

2. Brush the mayonnaise on both sides of the chicken breasts. In a gallon-size plastic bag add the chicken, bread crumbs, and parmesan cheese. Shake the bag to make sure the chicken gets evenly coated with bread crumbs and cheese.

Air Fryer Chicken Breast Cook Time

3. Bake the breaded chicken breast in the air fryer for ten mins and then flip over for twelve- sixteen more minutes. You just want to cook the recipe until the chicken internal temperature reaches 160F. I highly recommend using an instant-read meat thermometer to help with that. Let the chicken rest three -five minutes before serving. Serve the chicken breast whole or slice it for a fancier presentation. This recipe serves 2+ people using just 2 8 oz chicken breasts. You can add more chicken breasts if desired.

Notes

Let the chicken breast sit out for thirty-fifteen minutes before cooking.  

Preheat the air fryer to get more consistent cooking.

Using a gallon-size bag, makes it easy to coat the breading on the chicken breasts, but you can also coat it by first adding the crumb mix to a low dish and pressing the chicken into the mix on both sides.

Cut the gluten or carbs by switching to gluten free or low carb breadcrumbs.

If your chicken breasts are smaller than 7-8 oz each, take a couple of minutes off of the cooking time.

Use a large air fryer if you want to cook more than 2 chicken breasts at a time. The crumb mix will coat up to 3-4 breasts.

Replace the mayo for olive oil if you don’t like or don’t have mayonnaise.

Swap plain breadcrumbs for seasoned and add your favorite seasoning instead.
