  • Add chicken seasoning and a little salt and pepper to your chicken breasts. Create your production line with a bowl for eggs, a bowl for crackers and a bowl for grated cheese. Add garlic puree and milk to your egg bowl, breadcrumbs to your cracker bowl. Season all three bowls with salt and pepper and stir.

Overcrowding. Air fryer sizes differ, and I recommend for a medium air fryer to only cook two at once.
Quality Chicken. If you are looking for a quality chicken breasts to cook in the air fryer, I recommend Butcher Box. Their chicken breasts come to you frozen and you can remove the packaging and load the chicken straight into the air fryer.
Careful. Ritz cracker chicken is more delicate compared to other breaded chicken. You need to be careful when transferring it to the air fryer basket so that the coating doesn’t come off. I find carrying the chopping board to where my air fryer is, works best.
