I like this Oven Cravers brand as it is also filled with four cheeses and a marinara sauce! When you cut it open, the sauce is gooey and cheesy. You can make a full meal out of it with some sides or eat them on their own!

Great for hungry kids or a busy parent on the go!

How To Make Frozen Chicken Parmesan In The Air Fryer

First spray the air fryer basket with some non-stick cooking oil spray to keep it from sticking.

Next place two of the chicken parmesan pieces next to each other in the basket.

Set the temperature of the air fryer to 400F and the cooking time to 15 minutes.

About halfway through cooking, remove the air fryer basket. With a spatula, flip the chicken pieces over to the other side. This will ensure even browning on both sides.

Then return the basket to the air fryer to finish cooking.

Before removing, check the temperature of the chicken. It should be at least 165F before eating. If not, cook for a few more minutes until done.

Serve and enjoy!
