Air Fryer Recipes, Chicken

Breaded Chicken Schnitzel


Another recipe to cook in the air fryer. For me I searched for chicken recipes to cook in the air fryer and so far I am very pleased with the results.



4 servings

Prep time

10 minutes

Cooking time

6-8 minutes


  • 2 whole chicken breasts, cut in half

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • Breading
  • 1/4 cup regular shop breadcrumbs

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder


  • Start by cutting each chicken breast in half so you have two thin slices. I covered the chicken halves in glad wrap and pounded with a rolling pin to thin them.
  • Next brush all sides with olive oil.
  • Stir all breading ingredients together in a large dish.
    Dredge the chicken in the breading multiple times until thoroughly coated. Shake off excess. Add 2 halves into the air fryer and cook for 4 minutes and then flip and cook for 2 minutes. Just remember cooking will vary on the thickness of the chicken. Cut one in half to see if they are done.
  • This is the breaded chicken schnitzel before cooking.
