How To Make Almond Flour Breaded Chicken Breast In The Air Fryer

Spray the air fryer basket with non-stick cooking spray. Pour almond flour onto a plate and then break an egg into a bowl for dipping.

Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add any other seasonings as desired.

Then dip the chicken into the egg wash, making sure to coat both sides. Next dip into the almond flour to coat the chicken evenly. Repeat with the other cutlet.

Add the chicken cutlets into the air fryer basket in a single layer.

Cook at 400F for 10 minutes, flipping the chicken over halfway through to cook evenly on both sides. Once done, test with an internal thermometer to make sure chicken has reached a minimum of 165F.

Serve hot and enjoy!
