How To Make Air Fryer Chicken Milanese with Arugula

Air Fryer Chicken Milanese are chicken cutlets deliciously coated with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese for a crisp cheesy golden goodness in every bite.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 30 minutes




    1. Cut chicken into 4 cutlets, then place cutlets between 2 sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap and pound out to ¼-inch thick. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
    1. In a shallow plate, beat the egg and 1 teaspoon of water together.
    1. Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a shallow bowl.

    1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
    1. In batches, transfer to the air fryer basket and cook for about 7 minutes, turning halfway until golden and cooked through.

Oven Directions:

    1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
    1. Bake for about 12 to 14 minutes, flipping halfway until golden.
