This Air Fryer Shake and Bake Chicken is an easy dinner that will excite everyone who eats it. You only need a few simple ingredients, or the packaged seasonings to have chicken with a crispy texture.
– 4 boneless skinless chicken breastsabout 6 ounces each – ⅓ cup mayonnaise – 1 shake and bake seasoning packet
Place chicken on cutting board and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. Pour shake and bake packet or homemade coating into a large Ziploc storage bag. Next, lightly coat both sides of boneless chicken breasts with mayonnaise, so the coating will adhere to the chicken.
Place chicken into bag with seasonings. Seal or fold over top of bag and shake the chicken in coating mixture until each chicken piece is completely covered without any dry spots showing.
Place each piece of chicken into the basket in a single layer and air fryer at 380 degrees F for 15-18 minutes, depending on the thickness.
Use a meat thermometer to make sure chicken is cooked through. Internal temperature for a chicken breast should be 165 degrees F. Thicker chicken breasts will require additional cooking time. –
