This Homemade Air Fryer Chicken Fries Recipe is made with panko crumbs, flour, parmesan, garlic powder, eggs and air fried to perfection. 


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 cups panko crumbs
  • ¼ cup parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a food processor, add the panko crumbs, parmesan, garlic powder and a pinch of salt. Pulse until panko crumbs are small.
  2. Cut the chicken breasts in half, lengthwise. Cut chicken slices into slices, resembling fries. Repeat with the rest of the chicken.
  3. In a bowl, add the flour. In a separate bowl, crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk. In another shallow bowl, add the bread crumb mixture.
  4. Toss a piece of chicken in the flour. Then, dip a piece of chicken into the eggs and then toss in the bread crumbs. Place on a clean plate. Repeat with the rest. Drizzle all the finished chicken with olive oil.
  5. Air fry at 350°F for 5 minutes, flipping once halfway. You may need to do this in batches.
  6. Dip the chicken fries in your favorite condiment, and enjoy!


  • Use chicken tenders or breast: Chicken tenders are easier to cut into strips and are more tender and juicy than chicken breasts. They are also a great size and shape for making Chicken Fries.
  • Season the chicken: To add flavor to the chicken, season it with salt and pepper before dipping it in the egg mixture.
  • Double coat the chicken: For extra crispy Chicken Fries, double coat the chicken by dipping it in the egg mixture and then the breading mixture, and then repeating the process.
  • Use panko breadcrumbs: Panko breadcrumbs are lighter and crispier than regular breadcrumbs, making them perfect for Air Fryer Chicken Fries.
  • Spray the chicken with cooking spray: Spray the chicken strips with cooking spray before air frying to ensure they get crispy and golden brown.
  • Don't overcrowd the air fryer basket: Make sure to leave enough space between the Chicken Fries in the air fryer basket to allow air to circulate and ensure even cooking.
  • Shake the basket: Shake the air fryer basket halfway through cooking to ensure that the Chicken Fries cook evenly on all sides.
  • Let them rest: Let the Chicken Fries rest for a few minutes before serving to allow the breading to set and become even crispier.
