Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan Recipe

This past weekend we made Chicken Parmesan for dinner, and since it was only three of us eating, I used the air fryer. The results were great, no complaints from my husband so that means he approved!

I basically followed the same recipe as my oven version but made half, and added the sauce and cheese the last three minutes of cook time. I made them in my Skinnytaste Vremi Air Fryer that you can pre-order now, it comes out in a few weeks!

If you don’t have an air-fryer, you can follow my baked chicken parmesan recipe here. I brush the chicken with melted butter or oil instead of using egg before the breadcrumbs to give it that “fried” taste without frying. To see some of my other air-fryer recipes, click here.
