Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 12-15 minutes
Total Time: 27-30 minutes
Servings: 4
Intensity: Easy


  • 1 pound (about 450g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (preferably panko breadcrumbs for extra crispiness)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Cooking spray or oil for greasing


  1. Preheat Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
  2. Prepare Breading Station: In a shallow dish, combine the all-purpose flour with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and dried oregano. In another dish, beat the eggs. In a third dish, combine the breadcrumbs with grated Parmesan cheese.
  3. Coat Chicken Strips:
    • Dredge each chicken strip in the seasoned flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
    • Dip the floured chicken strip into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off.
    • Coat the chicken strip with the breadcrumb and Parmesan mixture, pressing gently to ensure the breadcrumbs adhere to the chicken.
  4. Arrange in Air Fryer Basket: Lightly grease the air fryer basket with cooking spray or a small amount of oil. Place the breaded chicken strips in a single layer in the air fryer basket, leaving space between them for even cooking.
  5. Air Fry Chicken Strips: Place the air fryer basket with the chicken strips into the preheated air fryer. Air fry the chicken strips at 400°F (200°C) for 12-15 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking, until they are golden brown and crispy.
  6. Check Doneness: The chicken strips are done when they reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and the coating is crispy and golden.
  7. Serve: Once cooked, remove the crispy chicken strips from the air fryer. Let them cool slightly before serving. Serve the chicken strips hot with your favorite dipping sauce, such as barbecue sauce, honey mustard, or ranch dressing.

Note: Cooking times may vary slightly depending on the thickness of the chicken strips and your air fryer model. Adjust cooking time accordingly for desired crispiness.

Enjoy your homemade crispy and flavorful air-fried chicken strips as a delicious snack or main dish!
