  • 4 Chicken Breasts About 4 ounces each and pounded to an even thickness. About 1/3 inch is thickness is best.
  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 egg beaten


  1. Trim and pound the chicken breasts. A thickness of 1/3 of an inch is best.

  2. Salt and pepper the outside of the chicken and set aside.

  3. Mix the egg up in a dish. Be sure it's one your chicken will fit into as you'll be dipping the chicken in the egg first.

  4. In another dish mix together almond flour, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper.

  5. Dredge the chicken in the egg and then the almond flour mixture.

  6. Preheat your air fryer to 390 degrees. Just allow it to run for 2-3 minutes.

  7. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Add the chicken, then spray the tops of the chicken with cooking spray as well.

  8. Air fry for 10-12 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Flip it halfway through cooking. I like to use an instant read thermometer to check my chicken. It's easy to overcook it when air frying.

Recipe Notes

You could make this in the oven too. I'd recommend baking it at 400 degrees and turning it halfway through cooking.  I did not test it this way, but I imagine it would take about 20 minutes as the air fryer cooks about 30% faster than the oven. If you have it, I'd recommend cooking the chicken on a wire rack fitted over a sheet pan. This will allow air to circulate around the chicken. Watch the chicken carefully. Since I didn't test it this way and ovens vary- I can't guarantee 20 minutes won't over cook it.
