Air Fryer Chicken Milanese with Arugula
Crisp, golden, delicious Air Fryer Chicken Milanese with Baby Arugula and lemon wedges is one of my favorite dinner recipes!
boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 16 oz total
Freshly ground black pepper
seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs, wheat or gluten-free
grated Parmesan cheese
large egg, beaten
olive oil spray
lemons, cut into wedges
Cut chicken into 4 cutlets, then place cutlets between 2 sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap and pound out to 1/4-inch thick.
Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
In a shallow plate, beat the egg and 1 teaspoon of water together.
Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a shallow bowl.
Dip the chicken into the egg, then the breadcrumb mixture. Place on a work surface and spray both sides with olive oil.
Preheat the air fryer to 400F.
In batches transfer to the air fryer basket and cook 7 minutes, turning halfway until golden and cooked through.
Serve chicken with 1 1/2 cups arugula and top with a generous amount of lemon juice.
Bake in a preheated oven 425F 425F for 12 to 14 minutes, flipping halfway until golden.
