Carnivore Air Fryer Chicken Schnitzel Recipe

✨ Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 Thin Chicken Breast Cutlets
  • 2 Eggs (large)
  • 1 cup Pork Panko (ground pork rinds)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)

👨‍🍳 How To Make

Follow this easy recipe:

Step 1

If the chicken breasts are thicker than 1/4 inch, pound them to an even thickness of about 1/4 inch.

Step 2

In a small bowl, whisk the eggs. In another bowl, mix the pork panko, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.

Step 3

Coat each chicken piece by first dipping it in the egg mixture and then in the panko mixture, ensuring an even coating.

Step 4

Place the breaded chicken cutlets in the air fryer in a single layer. If necessary, cook the chicken in batches to avoid overcrowding.

Step 5

Air fry at 375°F (190°C) for 4 minutes, then flip the cutlets and air fry for an additional 4 minutes. If your air fryer has 2 racks and you are air frying 2 trays simultaneously, increase the cooking time to about 6 minutes per side.

💡Tips

1. Avoiding Overcrowding

When placing the breaded chicken cutlets in the air fryer, make sure to arrange them in a single layer with a bit of space between each piece. Overcrowding the air fryer basket can lead to uneven cooking and less crispy results.

If necessary, cook the chicken in batches to ensure that each cutlet has enough room to cook properly and develop a crispy crust.

2. Perfecting the Breading

The key to achieving a crispy, golden-brown crust is to make sure the breading adheres well to the chicken. To do this, set up a breading station with two shallow dishes: one containing the whisked eggs and the other with the pork panko mixture.

Dip each chicken cutlet first in the egg mixture, allowing the excess to drip off, and then coat it evenly in the pork panko mixture. Press the panko gently onto the chicken to ensure a good coating.
