  • Chop up your potatoes into French Fries keeping the skin on.
  • Set up your production line. In one bowl beat the eggs and add to it the basil, salt and pepper along with some garlic puree. Blend the crisps until fine and in another bowl add them along with black pepper and a handful of leftover breadcrumbs. Mix the second bowl well.
  • Butterfly the chicken and place them onto a clean chopping board.
  • Place your French Fries in the Air Fryer and cook for 12 minutes at 180c/360f with your tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Remove the basket from the Air Fryer and replace it with the Air Fryer Grill Pan.
  • Cover the butterfly chicken in the parmesan coating, then in the egg and then back in the parmesan coating. Place the chicken on the grill pan and cook in the Air Fryer for 10 minutes at 180c/360f.
  • When it beeps place the chicken over the French Fries, decorate the top with the cheese and then cook in the Air Fryer at the same temperature for a further 4 minutes.


The easy system I have is that I cook the French Fries first in the Air Fryer basket, then I take out the basket, put them to one side and cook the chicken parmesan in the Air Fryer grill pan. Then when the chicken is nearly cooked I transfer the chicken to the basket, add some cheese and finish the cooking process.


Its much easier and then you don’t have an air fryer overcrowding problem. The bag of parmesan crisps that we used were 100g in weight. Parmesan crisps carry a bit of moisture this is perfect for making Air Fryer Parmesan Chicken without butter as it sticks better. I find that 2 medium chicken breasts when butterflied easily make 4 good sized pieces for chicken parmesan.


We have found the best place to source chicken breasts to make Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan is from ButcherBox. You even receive free bacon and $10 off your first order when you sign up with this link.
