Make this chicken for dinner tonight

On Saturday evening, my mom came over to my and Blaine’s place to have dinner with us. My sister and dad weren’t home for the evening, so rather than her eating alone, it makes sense for her to come over to where we are seeing as we are quite close.

Blaine’s been pretty sick for the past couple of weeks with a respiratory bug, and he ever so generously recently passed it onto me. I’m not feeling terribly shabby, so my mom offered to help out and contribute to our dinner, which I sincerely appreciated. She made some delicious mashed potatoes and, before running into town to do some errands, she dropped some raw chicken breasts off at my place for me to prepare in the meantime.

I wasn’t entirely sure how I wanted to prepare the chicken, but then I remembered I had some panko bread crumbs I had been wanting to use. I literally Googled ‘chicken breasts panko bread crumbs air fryer’ and stumbled across the following recipe from

“Crispy Breaded Air Fryer Chicken Breast


  • Air Fryer


  • 1 Lb Chicken breast
  • 2 tsp Olive oil
  • Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Panko (GF if needed)
  • 2 tsp Seasoning salt
  • 2 tsp Paprika
  • 2 tsp Ground mustard powder
  • 2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 2 tsp Onion powder


  • Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees.
  • Place the chicken breast between two layers of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin or meat mallet to gentle press the chicken so it’s an even width throughout. Dry the chicken breasts off with paper towel.
  • Pour the oil onto the chicken (I do this right on the parchment) and rub all over, coating it equally. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl, shaking together. Pour onto a large rimmed plate.
  • Cover each of the chicken breasts well with the panko mixture, and then place onto the mesh basket of your air fryer, making sure to leave room between the breasts – they would not be touching.
  • Spray the tops of the chicken with cooking spray and cook 8 minutes. Gently flip and cook another 6-8 minutes until the chicken is crispy and golden and an instant read thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit inserted into the chicken
  • DEVOUR! (Great with ketchup! ?” the recipe states.

My mom, Blaine and I all agreed that this chicken is delicious. It’s crunchy and crisp on the inside, but juicy and tender inside. It’s super easy to make, and it’s quick as well. I definitely recommend this recipe.
