Chicken Parmesan




Yield 8

Easy air fry (or oven baked) crispy chicken parmesan topped with hearty marinara sauce and a healthy amount of melty mozzarella cheese.



  1. Preheat air fryer to 375 degrees (or oven to 425 degrees.)
  2. In a plastic bag add whole wheat flour.
  3. In a bowl, add the 2 eggs and milk; whisk till combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine panko, bread crumbs, 1/2 C Parmesan cheese, and seasonings.
  5. Lightly season the chicken cutlets with the salt and pepper.
  6. Dredge through the flour, then the eggs and milk, followed by the breadcrumbs mixture.
  7. Repeat till all chicken is coated.
  8. Spray with olive oil and place in the air fryer. Make sure not to crowd the basket. Cook for 4 minutes each side or until golden brown. Cook all the chicken and place on a cookie sheet with a wire rack. (if preparing on oven, cook for about 6-8 min each side or until cooked throughout.)
  9. Top with marinara sauce, a sprinkle of reserved parmesan, and a slice of thick mozzarella cheese. Cook for 7 minutes or until cheese begins to melt.
  10. Broil for 4 minutes so the cheese is browning and bubbly.
  11. Enjoy!
