  • Preheat your air fryer to 180c.
  • On your chopping board lay out your chicken and sprinkle all sides with salt and pepper. After you have done this rub coconut milk into them.
  • Place everything else (apart from the egg) into your blender a bit at a time. Blend on the low blend feature until it is like smooth breadcrumbs.
  • Place the breadcrumb mixture into a bowl and the egg into another bowl.
  • Then for each piece of chicken dip it into the breadcrumbs, then into the egg and then back into the breadcrumbs.
  • Place them onto a baking mat inside your air fryer and cook for 20 minutes with 4 chicken pieces into your air fryer so that it is not over crowded.
  • Cook at 180c and then after you’ve done the 20 minutes give it another 5 minutes at 200c so that it can get nice and crispy.
  • Serve.


The oats and the cauliflower mixed together give you lovely gluten free breadcrumbs alternative. You can also use more cauliflower and less oats or substitute for coconut flakes instead.
With the coconut milk make sure you shake the can first so that you have no creamy texture and it then works as a healthier version of butter milk.
The benefit of putting all the dry ingredients into the blender together is that it works as a quick blend for all your seasoning and mixes it very well.
If you have leftover breadcrumbs you can pack them into freezer bags and freeze them for another chicken feast evening.
