Well, when preparing the chicken, use a metal or wooden meat hammer, cover your steak with plastic wrap, and beat well until all the chicken is covered with the marks.

If you prepared chicken fillets and there were leftovers, to reheat, set your airfryer to 180 degrees for about 4 minutes. Halfway through cooking, turn the meat over and ensure it is hot enough to serve.

Also check that there is space inside your fryer basket. It is precisely the hot air that will cook the chicken and create a crispy outer layer that everyone loves so much.

That way, if you stack the chicken fillet strips, they won't be as crispy.

So let's get to what matters, the recipe for Breaded Chicken in the Airfryer.

Ingredients for Breaded Chicken in the Airfryer

  • 1,5 kg of steak in strips/cubes.
  • 1 packet of breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2/3 cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1,5 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 egg

How to Make Breaded Chicken in the Airfryer


Spray the fryer basket with non-stick spray and preheat to 180 degrees. Cut the fillet into cubes into strips and season each piece with salt and pepper.


In a bowl or plate, combine the flour, dry mustard, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and smoked paprika.


In a separate bowl, mix the milk and egg. In a third bowl, spread the breadcrumbs. Use a fork and place the chicken strips in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess.


Then dip it in the egg mixture, and finally, roll it through the breadcrumbs on both sides. Shake off the excess a little and place it in the fryer basket.


Do this with enough pieces to fill the basket without overlapping and leave a little space between them so they crisp up properly. Spray with oil spray lightly.


Close and cook at 180 degrees for 11 minutes total. Open and turn the pieces after 7 minutes. Continue cooking for 4 minutes and then check if you want them to brown more.


If yes, add a few more minutes until they are ready to your liking. Serve them with your favorite sauce, rice, and some good oil-free fries.
