An air fryer is a great appliance to have as we get heading into summer. There is no hot house from using you air fryer like there is when you use an oven. If you don’t have one yet, then you should seriously consider getting one.

Next, you spread mayo over the chicken. This is what is going to make the coating stick to the chicken. Then you dip the mayo coated chicken into a coating of panko bread crumbs, shredded Parmesan cheese, and garlic powder.

Now, it’s time to get that chicken into the air fryer. All you need is 15 minutes in the air fryer and this air fryer parmesan chicken is ready to eat. Always temp your chicken just to be sure it is fully cooked.
