Air Fryer Parmesan Chicken Recipe

Level: Easy
Total: 30 min
Active: 20 min
Yield: 2 servings

This chicken gets incredibly crunchy, thanks to a light coating of panko and Parmesan and a quick cook in the air fryer! Serve it with charred broccoli and a tangy yogurt sauce for a healthy and complete meal you can throw together any day of the week.


1/3 cup panko

1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan

4 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each)

1 1/2 tablespoons plus 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard

2 cups small broccoli florets (about 5 ounces)

1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt

Finely grated zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

Special equipment: a 3.5-quart air fryer

1. Stir together the panko, Parmesan, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, oregano, a pinch of salt, and a couple of grinds of pepper in a shallow bowl or small baking dish until thoroughly combined. Pat the chicken dry between a couple of paper towels, then sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Brush both sides of the chicken with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the Dijon, then press into the panko-Parmesan mixture, making sure both sides are evenly coated.

2. Toss the broccoli, remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil, a good pinch of salt, and several grinds of pepper in a medium bowl until evenly coated.

3. Preheat a 3.5-quart air fryer to 375 degrees F. Add the chicken to the air-fryer basket and cook until it’s starting to brown and crisp on the top, about 6 minutes. Flip the chicken over with tongs and position it in the center of the basket, then scatter the broccoli around the perimeter. Continue air-frying until the chicken is crisp all over and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the middle registers 160 degrees F, and the broccoli is tender and charred, about 8 minutes more.

4. Meanwhile, stir together the yogurt, lemon zest, and juice, remaining 1/4 teaspoon Dijon, a pinch of salt, and several grinds of pepper in a small bowl. Serve alongside the chicken and broccoli for dipping.
