  • 1 lb (450g) skinless boneless chicken breasts halved crossways
  • ½ cup gluten-free breadcrumbs or regular
  • 4 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • salt optional
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat the air fryer to 180C / 350F.
  • Mix together breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, paprika, Italian Seasoning, ground coriander and salt in a bowl.
  • Lightly spray both sides of the halved chicken breast with a calorie-controlled cooking spray.
  • Cover both sides of the chicken breasts with the coating mix and place chicken breast in the air fryer basket. Make sure the chicken breasts are not touching. 
  • Cook between 4-5 mins then flip over and cook for 4-5 mins on the next side. " Cooking times depending on the thickness of the breast so maybe a little more or a little less. Chicken is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 75 C (165 F). 
  • Air Fryers vary in their temperatures which is why I have added a cooking time range. When cooking this for the first time start with the lowest cooking times and adjust accordingly



  • Don’t overcrowd the fryer. Make sure the chicken breasts are not touching each other to allow for maximum air circulation so that they cook nice and evenly. I got between 2 and 3 breasts into my air fryer without touching. 
  • Don’t leave your chicken sitting in the coating for too long as it can go soggy. Coat both sides and then get it in the fryer ASAP.
  • Always check the internal temperature of your chicken breast. The meat is done and safe to eat when the internal temperature reaches at least 74C (165 F).
