  • 4 chicken breasts butterflied to make 8 thin breasts
  • 3 oz Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 oz Seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 oz flour*
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp pickle juice
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder I like chipotle chili powder, but optional
  • 2 tsp kosher salt divided
  • 2 tsp pepper divided
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat air fryer to 400
  • Set up your bowl stations:
    In bowl #1, add about a half a cup of flour and 1 tsp salt and pepper. *I weighed my flour before and after. I added 3oz of flour and used exactly 1 oz. every single time--trust me
    In bowl #2, add 3 eggs, dijon, pickle juice, and hot sauce. Mix.
    In bowl #3, add bread crumbs, all seasoning, and 1 tsp of salt and pepper
  • Dredge chicken in bowl #1 and pat chicken breast so excess flour comes off. Coat chicken in egg from bowl #2, then toss in bowl #3 until fully covered. Place breaded chicken on a plate until all chicken breasts are coated. Spray both sides of the coated chicken breast with cooking spray.
  • Air fry chicken at 400 for 15 minutes, flipping after 10 minutes.  Chicken should be cooked until 165 degrees. Juices will run clear if cut.
