  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1.5 Cups Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano


  1. Start by gathering your ingredients, slice the chicken breasts into strips of your desired size. They do not have to be perfect, they'll still taste delicious! Season the chicken with salt and pepper. 

  2. Mix the bread crumbs and seasonings together in one bowl, whisk the eggs in another bowl and add the flour to a third bowl. 

  3. Coat each piece of chicken in flour, then dip in the egg mixture and finally into the bread crumbs.

  4. Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees for at least 3 minutes, then carefully add the pieces of chicken. Don't overcrowd the basket, this will prevent the chicken strips from cooking evenly. 

  5. Cook the chicken strips at 350 degrees for 12 minutes, turning over after the first 6 minutes. 

  6. Work in batches until the chicken strips are all cooked. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and sides. We love having these with Air Fryer French Fries!
