I love chicken parmesan. Since the weather was cold and nasty, I decided to make some marinara sauce as well. There’s nothing better than your own homemade sauce. I’m going to do another post about the simple marinara sauce I make. It takes a total of 1 and a half hours to make, but on with the meal.
I had gotten myself a Ninja Air Fryer for Christmas, I love it. It’s such an easy clean up too.
Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan
- 2 Chicken Breasts
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese Not Grated
- 1 Cup Italian Breadcrumbs
- 2 Eggs Whisked
- 1/2 Cup Marinara Sauce
- 1/2 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
Set temperature on Air Fryer to 360 degrees F. Preheat 3 minutes.
Cut chicken breasts in half, lengthwise and trim.
Pound the chicken breasts into thinner pieces that are the same thickness.
In a medium bowl mix together the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.
In another bowl whisk the eggs together.
Dip each piece of chicken in egg and then dredge in the breadcrumb mixture. Repeat with remaining pieces of chicken.
Place chicken breasts in single layer inside of air fryer basket. If you are using a smaller air fryer you will need to cook in batches.
Add chicken breasts to preheated Air Fryer and cook for 6 minutes. Flip the chicken breasts over and top with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. Air fry for an addition 3-4 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degree F.
Set aside and keep warm, repeat with remaining 2 pieces
