  • 1.5 lbs. chicken breasts skinless, boneless
  • Italian seasoning as needed
  • Olive oil as needed
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoon milk
  • ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt as needed
  • Pepper as needed
  • Cooking spray as needed


  • To prepare the cutlets, pound each chicken breast to an even ¼-inch thickness. If necessary, slice the breast in half, lengthwise, to achieve a nice thin cutlet.
  • Drizzle the chicken with olive oil and rub with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Place in a sealable container or Ziplock bag and marinate it for at least 1 hour, ideally overnight.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the egg, milk, salt, and pepper.
  • In a shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and smoked paprika.
  • Dip the chicken into the egg mixture, then dredge it into the panko mixture, lightly pressing to coat. Line a cooking tray with parchment paper.
  • Place the chicken onto the prepared cooking tray and spray with cooking oil spray. Work in batches if necessary.
  • Bake in air fryer oven at 400˚F for 10 minutes. Flip the chicken and bake for 3-5 more minutes at 400˚F, or until golden and cooked through. Repeat for each batch.
  • Serve hot for maximum crispiness!
