  2. Trim chicken breast of excess fat.  Be sure to butterfly chicken breasts or pound to no thicker than 1/4 inch.  This is an important step to make sure the chicken cooks thoroughly.

  3. Measure out breadcrumbs and Kodiak cake mix into two separate bowls.  Season breadcrumbs and Kodiak cake mix evenly with spices.  Add parmesan cheese to the breadcrumb bowl.  Put egg in third bowl and scramble with a fork.  Line up the bowls in order of Kodiak Cakes mix, egg, breadcrumbs.  

  4. Dredge chicken in flour then dip and coat into eggs.  Coat with breadcrumb mix on all sides.  

  5. Place chicken in air fryer and cook at 390F for 4 minutes.  Flip and cook for 2-4 minutes depending on thickness of chicken.  Chicken is cooked at 165F and is best determined with a meat thermometer.  Cook until done.
