  • 2 large Chicken Breast
  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Pepper

For bread coating

  • ½ cup Fine Breadcrumb
  • 1 tablespoon Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Basil
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Chili powder or paprika


  • Cut chicken breast into cutlets or fillets. Using a meat mallet or a rolling pin pound any thick part of the fillets to get even thickness.
  • Mix oil, salt, pepper. Coat chicken well with the mixture.
  • In another mixing bowl add breadcrumb, flour, and the rest of the spices.
  • Place one chicken cutlet on the breadcrumb mixture one at a time. Press gently so that the mixture sticks to the chicken. Flip and repeat the same.
  • Place coated chicken breast in the Airfryer inner tray, spaced a little apart.
  • Set temperature @ 200 degrees Celcius. Cook for 8-9 minutes. Flip and cook for another 4 minutes.
  • Let it rest for 5 minutes, before slicing it.
