Okay guys, in my bowl, I have some chicken breast dice into bite-size pieces. Make sure the pieces are equal, that way they fry evenly. We’re going to start by marinating the check-in. So in this bowl, I have some salt, pepper dried thyme, paprika, garlic, and onion powder. Go ahead and put them the chicken. We’re also adding some flour, egg as well as yogurt. The yogurt will make the chicken very moist and tender.

Go ahead and mix it all in, and get everything very well incorporated. Then we’re going to marinate this for at least 20 minutes. That way the chicken can soak in all those flavors. So while the chicken is marinating, we’re going to prepare the AirFryer.

Go ahead and pull the air fryer basket out and spray with a non-stick spray that way nothing sticks. Then set aside for later. Next, we are going to season some panko bread crumbs with salt and pepper. We’re going to dip the chicken in the breadcrumbs. So season it as a lot of flavor to the chicken.

Once the chicken is done marinating, you’re going to grab a piece, then dip it in the bread crumbs, use your thumb to press it down, it really helps the bread crumbs stick to the chicken.

Once the chicken is very well coated, place it into the air fryer basket. Then repeat the process. Also, guys, make sure you don’t overcrowd the basket that way the chicken can fry very well. We’re going to spread some cooking spray on the chicken to help them crisp up very well.

Place the basket back and air fry at 360 Fahrenheit for 10 to 12 minutes.

Yeah, they came out very crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, and packed with flavor.
