½cupKodiak Cakes Flapjack Mix
To begin cooking the air fryer chicken breast, preheat Air Fryer to 390F. Spray roasting pan with olive oil spray.
Trim chicken breast of excess fat. Be sure to butterfly chicken breasts or pound to no thicker than ¼ inch. This is an important step to make sure the chicken cooks thoroughly.
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.
Dredge chicken in pancake mix then dip and coat into eggs. Coat with breadcrumb mix on all sides.
Place chicken in air fryer basket 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.
Temperatures for air fryers do vary. Use my recipe temperature and time as a suggestion and adjust to your own model.
To ensure proper and even cooking, cook food in one layer to make sure both sides get crispy. Make sure you give each piece a bit of space to optimize crispiness.
Spray your tray and food with coconut oil spray. It is better for your air fryer than using traditional cooking spray.
Flip your chicken halfway (four minutes per side) for optimum crisp.
Breading won't stick? Make sure you dry your chicken thoroughly before seasoning and breading.
